Mario and his crew showed up today to finish the front of the garage, trimming out the interior of the windows to accept sheetrock and constructing the transoms over 5 of the doors. They also tweaked the hallway niche to make it a true niche and installed the kitchen island with a 2z6 wall to pull the cabinets out to 30" depth since that's the prep space and coffee/tea bar area.
The Blown Cellulose team arrived late in the day and began planning out their work for tomorrow; the ceiling will be their most difficult challenge with portions being flat and others being at the 4:12 pitch. They'd like to have their shot at insulation before the ceiling joists and the HVAC ductwork is installed but it's a common theme among the trades which is hard to accommodate.
|The south side of the roof - as of Saturday afternoon. Flashing for Skylight is yet to be installed and ridge cap will go on once it's all dried in|
|This is why pictures of all the walls before insulation and sheetrock is imporant. Note the electrical, speaker, cable, HVAC and plumbing all running through the same bay in between the I-Joists.|
|More of the same|
|Here's a view of the house at sunset. Note the visible portion of the roof is installed and the garage front is set to receive the door (which we haven't ordered yet).|
