Drywall beginning in the bedrooms
Completed eave wall
Along with drywall, we have been working diligently to get the bathroom ready. We managed to find an unfinished solid maple door on clearance at Menards, so I spent some time putting a nice tongue oil finish on it. I think it turned out pretty well!
Sealed bathroom door
The next step in the bathroom once the tub was in was to install the bathroom fan and lights and then close up the ceiling to hide the duct work. The bathroom is the only room where the beams are not exposed.
Completed bathroom ceiling
With the ceiling in place and all the plumbing roughed in, we installed the greenboard on all the walls. In a testament to how much we now appreciate the little things, we celebrated that the bathroom had walls!
The same day, we finally got to put up the car siding wall in the living room. Eventually the stairway and some built in shelves will cover this wall, but for now it is the only visible and finished wall in the entire house! Scott and Jeremy were a little slap happy at the end of it.
Our final milestone happened yesterday. We finished insulating the exterior walls with pink foam. That meant we could finally get all the little bits of foam out of the house and start hanging sheetrock in the living spaces. Woo hoo!
Finished foam in the kitchen
We have help coming today to work on sheetrock. With a little luck, we'll get all the tall pieces up on the walls. We should also get the first round of putty sanded such that later this week we can start painting in the bathroom. That is super exciting as it is one of a very short list of steps before we can do tile and (finally) have a functioning bathroom in the house! Its all about the little things for us at this point.
