Up next: Insulation and Drywall

IMGP3520Things are looking rather chaotic up at construction central this week. We finished the spray insulation on Monday. Think of it as dried up marshmallows pumped into your exterior walls…

IMGP3515Now we’re working on the drywall installation, ceiling first. And yes, it is quite tough holding up those boards to secure them.  Can’t wait until the drywall is up, taped and textured!

IMGP3518Then we can begin the fun part, finishing the kitchen and baths with cabinets and tiling!

IMGP3523We picked some nice charcoal-colored tile for the main floors. It should absorb the solar heat beautifully in the winter, and then our insulated 6 inch slab should hold the heat a long time.

As you can see, home construction is NOT for the faint of heart! Who knew there were so many steps and stages to this complex process? Certainly not me!
