Too hot to work

Today is 93 and feels like 114 degrees F - at 1pm

I started the impermeabilizante sometime last week on the drainage trough between me and my neighbor. I had already used sealer and I put the impermeabilizante down with Tela (fiberglass like material). That was easy and mostly in the shade. Only had to worry about falling into my neighbors yard.

Saturday I did a large section of the roof towards the front of the house and must have overheated because Sunday and Monday I was exhausted. Today feeling refreshed I got working at 8:30 and did the first section. No shade but not nearly as hot as early afternoons have been. The back section was in shade until 10:30 but I still left some for tomorrow. 

This heat reminds my of driving through Texas on my way back from Florida in my van with no air conditioning. Had a cooler between the seats and a wet cold towel over my head. Gonna have to have better sun protection next time. It didn't help that Sunday was the Summer Solstice 

Sloped drainage

First section

Starting the back section in shade

Even with the laundry room - the rest tomorrow


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
