Dry-in is almost complete at the Cottage on the Cape. Matt explains the multi-layered roofing system that will be installed when the sheathing is completed. With the sheathing over the ADU finished, Chris joins Pete on the roof to see how the skylights will fit in with the layers and learn how the opening will be made water-tight. Back on the ground, a ScapeWell gets built along the side of the house for additional egress and provide natural light to the finished end of the basement, and Chris jumps in to help with the install.
