Camp Hearne Diary - March 13, 2010

The painters came out on Saturday to get the job done before the roofers show up on Monday.

The black flat paint (primer&base coat) went on without a hitch. I am really pleased with the historic look. When the batten boards go up, it will achieve the 1942 barrack look we are after. A really nice job by local painter, Butch Crook and crew.

The painters also caulked the fascia & soffits to finish them out. The vented soffits were painted black. The fascia boards were painted white. The roofer will finish the eaves and the ridge vents with the mineral rolled roofing system that will have the similiar appearance of a 1942 rolled roof but have a much longer life span.
