Simpson strapping and Typar

Now for a bit of Simpson strapping for hurricane protection. Engineering is for 110mph winds where we are.

And then we cover the complete structure with Typar moisture barrier so that the tongue and groove doesn't rot! These hidden details are not glamorous but are oh so important in the building process. When you're building your very own dream house for your very own self, you want to do it right.
