Quick question to those that know more about building than I do. The builder used OSB board (particle board) for the roof sheathing. They covered it with tar paper but didn't have time to shingle it before this storm. The tar paper did well but leaked in several places.

How long can the OSB board stay wet before it starts to disintegrate?

I'm not sure but wouldn't a roofing material be made for exterior use i.e water proof glues and basically water resistant   ?
I wouldn't worry - it will dry out quickly once the sun is out - it takes years to rot even interior grade ply

Good point Steve, thanks. We had the roof on our house reshingled 2 years ago. The roofer found several soft spots in the OSB board so it made me kinda nervous.

The doors and windows are installed and the roof is on. The guys finished the siding so I spent Wednesday and Thursday painting. Its all insulated and waiting for drywall.

Looks like snow on the ground ?

Lol. What you see there is fill dirt or typical soil for Florida. Looks like beach sand doesn't it?

Neat. And there is hopefully less chance of sinkholes there?

Since its Florida, I just assumed it was cocaine.

North Central Florida is the sinkhole capital of the world. We are the Swiss Cheese of the nation. And because we have so many springs it is also the cave divers capital of the world. Springs and sinkholes go hand in hand. There is a spring just one block up the road from us. Floridians are tough and don't worry about large holes opening in the ground that could devour a whole house. We also don't worry about hurricanes or rising seas. We even named a football team after one of the largest and most vicious lizards known to man. Lol. Just having a little fun here.

Last Sunday we returned from a week vacation in the Georgia Mtns. We were surprised to find the drywall hung and the metal soffits and fascia complete. Tuesday they finished with hardcoat. Rose and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday painting. The builder found an awesome garage door, insulated and with windows at a reduced price. They will hang that Wednessday.

Friday we purchased everything to build a partition wall. $500 for a 24' wall seemed pricey to me.

Man that's a work shop and a half.  What's the width of that door opening and how far away from lighting fixtures are you ?

The shot is facing the south end of the building. The door is 3' wide. There is another 3' door (unseen) to the right of the photo. Behind me is an opening for a 10' overhead garage door with windows on each side. The lighting will be two banks of florescent T5-4 foot Mini Strips. 6 on each side of the vaulted ceiling. Two ceiling outlets will allow more lighting if needed. I'll take a shot Wednesday of the new garage door.

Thursday the Garage door was installed.

Last Friday three crews came to finish up some things. The inside trim work is finished. The electrical is finished and the form boards for the concrete pad were in place.

Sunday I gave the exterior a second coat of paint

Today they poured the pad and sidewalk

All we are waiting for now is the power to be hooked up and after that a final inspection. Power may take 3 or 4 weeks. :(

Kody that looks fantastic. Good for you. I'm definitely drooling.
