When putting the siding back on the house it is important to seal all the joints.
For example
Filling voids around the windows with the window spray foam. Remove the excess after the foam has hardened then silicone around the window to seal off any other possible draft or tiny holes which could possibly let water in.
For the steel flashing above the window add some adhesive to stop water from getting to the window.
After the the siding is installed seal around the siding / window interface.
Do not forget about the tyvec or felt paper.

While the boards are being removed to bring readjusted due to shrinkage, we noticed gaps in the plywood wall.
From these gaps we noticed that the insulation was missing in a spot.
We asked the owner if we could remove the plywood and take a peek.
We noticed on one side the insulation was missing, when we checked the other side insulation was missing.
The second side had access to the attic and insulation was also missing due to falling off of the wall.
This was the reason for the cool house in the winter due to the north facing window

Hum, something is up when you get a little surprise in RONA when a young man named Thomas holds his arms to be picked up.
So what does one do but pick up the little guy while the mom is shocked and the father is laughing because they were standing three feet from me.
Had to take a picture and and phone my wife. We all had a chuckle then I finished my transaction at the service desk then went out to the yard and picked up the lumber I required.
One never wakes up first thing in the morning and say by the end of the day there will be a young guy
Who wants to meet you.

Exchanging a fluorescent shower light not in the shower but shown installed to the led light installed and operational.
This transformation produces three or more times the light and places the fixture closer to the ceiling.
One must remember that all led lights cannot go into a wet environment.
The fixture must be designed for the application and installed per the manufacturers instructions.

We had a nice day today here in Edmonton. Was able to finish the window wells, get the yard cut.

Now off to remove plastic that was put around a window to give the silicone time to set.

On this pleasant drizzly day in Edmonton we are outside working on installing two sets of window wells which are 30" out from the wall. Used a hammer drill and concrete drills to hold the new window wells in place.
Normally the space from the wall is 24", but for basement suites the extra room is a requirement. Most likely a new regulation here in Edmonton or a construction code.
Of course I am glad that the construction company did not put more than two pieces of concrete in the area which had to be dug up.
Now it is raining and we to get out of the downpour.
Glad the window wells are in place now, and the area behind them can be filled in after the rain and compact the earth and clay at the same time in place.

Picture starting off the day, getting ready for work, on schedule open up the door to Edmonton the garage.

Get in your car, press the button to open the garage door and nothing happens.

Try to manually open the garage and the door is too heavy to open. Now you seem to be stuck and unable to figure out what the problem may be.

We were called in and found out that the spring was broken, so the garage door springs were removed and replacement purchased then installed.
