of framing the kids bedroom walls.
Then we moved on to more framing. First, we framed the walls around the bathroom so that Scott could get the electrical and plumbing going there. Then we did the walls upstairs around our room and between the kids rooms. It was so awesome the first time we could stand in the space and actually see the walls!
Completed upstairs interior framing
We weren't done framing yet though. All of the exterior walls have to have boards attached as a fir wall to mount the final wall covering to. That process took a while. We also had to cut channels in the garage doors for any wires that had to cross studs since the fir wall is only 1.5" deep.

We also had to do the pocket door for the bathroom. It was the first time we had every done a pocket door and it was, thankfully, not too bad. That finished the last of the bathroom framing!
Working on the washer drain
Meanwhile, Scott has gotten almost all the water lines in! We finally got to set the tub in position permanently this week.
There's a bathtub! And we don't have to pick it up again!
First sheets of drywall are on site!
Finished east door
As always, the work continues day by day. Each day there are small milestones - a washer drain is done, a door is trimmed, a new section is insulated - and over time it adds up to real progress. It is a long slow process though. Each new milestone feels great, but there are still so very many of them to get through. Every day, little up.
