Today was set aside for Diggity Dodge day. Yesterday I did a little cutting and fitting of some final roof support pieces....that's about it. The rest of the day was targeted for fixing a truck headlight wiring issue, and cleaning junk out of the basement to get ready for hauling away. Then some house cleaning.
First off today, I repaired the corner mold and hole on the outside. I cut the corner piece of the molding off so it would sit flat and not be stopped by that screw below it. Then I reinforced the inside with a piece of aluminum (there was a small tear in the aluminum siding where the old screw was) siding cut to fit, got the molding up where it's supposed to be and drilled a new hole for the screw. After getting the wood frame in place on the bottom inside, replacing the old dried butyl tape inside and out with Dycor Butyl tape, I put the screw to it and it tightened right up.
Then I sealed the whole thing over with some Lexel.
It's still an ugly corner.... the way it was made originally, so I decided it's going to get prettied up. Kind of liking this little hummer design, it will be attached with some of the butyl tape and the lexel....I think. I will not drill any holes or screw this in! LOL The bottom will be open to allow any water collected to leave..... Needs a good cleaning first. Any thoughts on this?
I also have to seal the edges of the molding yet. Another tomorrow project.
Either way, it's going to be not so unsightly somehow.
After that was done, I worked on the underside of the same area. Removed the old sealer, cleaned it up, and replaced with new.
On to the inside cab over. I didn't get any pics yet. I worked a long time trying to figure out miter corners and what size wood to use where. I have never had to figure out miter cuts before, and just discovered today that my chop saw will do miters. LOL I think I have it all figured out now, (thanks Lakota and Russ for answering my question on this) and will start on that again in the morning. It's going to need fillers here and there just because of trying to save the good wood framing and getting out the rotted parts. Good thing that will be covered with paneling or luan. LOL
Hope everyone had a nice weekend and have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July!
