Home Construction Week 11 Summary


Dance party!  This week, the insulation and sub-floor went in.  That allowed for a dance party!  Ryan brought over the Mac with iTunes, Grandma and Grandpa came over and we all danced.  On Friday, 2x4s and 2x6s were installed for all the interior and exterior walls, so now we have a very good idea of where each room sits.  The crew installed two 2x4s/2x6s for each wall, one directly on top of the other.  When they’re ready to go vertical with the walls, they take the top board and re-install it on the top of the wall.  That way, all the boards match perfectly and we have, in theory, perfectly square walls.

Schedule and costs:  Ahead of schedule by a day or two.  Woo-hoo.  No change orders.  Double woo-hoo!

Mood:  Great.  Excited about the house getting vertical soon!
