The carpenters finished up the siding but then have been off doing other things that they need to tend to. That’s been okay though as they left some things that we can easily do…mainly insulation.
We started out working in the upstairs. We wanted to get the walls done. The next time the carpenters are back the plan in to put sheet rock on the upstairs ceiling and then blow in the insulation in the roof/attic. My job…carry these big bundles of insulation upstairs. Right now there is no heat in the house so I’m dressed especially “cute”.
Hubby is busy placing the insulation between the 2 x 4’s.
Once the upstairs was done we moved on to the main floor. The kitchen started out looking like this…
and in just about two hours we had the kitchen done….
…and the laundry, bathroom and entry walls done.
Now with the insulation going up it’s easier to see where the walls are going to be and get a better “feel” of the size of the rooms.
I have to say I am VERY pleased with my space. I am very happy with the layout of the house too…That’s a good feeling.
It was rumored that the carpenters are going to be back at the house this afternoon. I got to say, I sure hope they are. Yesterday was the 25th of November…Christmas is only a month away. I had wanted to be in the house by Christmas and I’m believing that just isn’t going to happen. If it can’t be in 4 weeks…I’m hoping for 6 weeks.
Those of you who have built a house, how much longer does a house take from here??
