Lots of siding progress happened this week, including finishing the front of the house! The only thing missing is that dumb mudroom door. The correct millwork was added/grooved into the door and it’s back at the house. We just need the door framers to get it up there…and then the front will be done. Can’t wait! The back of the house had a lot of siding progress including being wrapped and just a few more sections need siding. Tons of progress!
On the inside, everything is getting ready for drywall, including adding the metal strips at the top corners of the ceiling. This is so that the drywall is nailed into the ceiling studs/joists as well as the metal brackets which are attached to the walls. They’ll resist upheave from the ceiling/attic so that the drywall will resist cracking or nails popping.
The fire sprinklers also got some insulation around them so that they could be inspected. The inspection passed with flying colors, and no issues with the design or construction – yay! Matt said that the insulation is “tented” around the sprinkler lines so that nothing (including insulation) can get between the smoke/fire in the house and the sprinkler heads. Who knew!
