Exam time

Last week, we passed a big exam. Well, inspection. There's enough prep and anxiety to think of them as exams, and this one was like a big hairy mid-term. Remember in college when you would finish an exam and then let loose to celebrate? Somehow we missed that part and just moved onto the next big task.

This inspection was called Exterior Shear Bracing and Roof Structure Nailing. What a mouthful. It really means that bracing is installed so that when the earth moves in the next earthquake, we will move quite a bit less than if we had no bracing. And the roof nailing is to, well, make sure we have a roof. All good things.
