Talkin' 'bout Walls

The progress this week at noTTafarm was highlighted by the completion of interior insulation and the beginning of drywall installation. Sound-absorbing insulation was added between interior walls above ceilings which should cut down on the clomping factor (a tell-tale sign that a member of the Ward side of the family (including me) is in the house.) The rooms definitely felt more cozy and quiet with the insulation complete!
By Friday (October 12) morning, the insulation was covered with its vapor barrier and ready for drywall.

 The drywall was delivered at about 7:30 Friday morning. 
After some discussion with Scott, it was decided that the first batch should be delivered to the second story through the deck door in the master bedroom. They used their big boom truck to lift the stack of sheets up and over the deck.
Each piece was moved by hand into the house. I left for work shortly after this photo was taken but Scott tells me that the first floor drywall was delivered through the south patio doors. They used the boom to lift it over our new patio.
The drywall crew made great progress on Friday. 
By the time we got home from work, most of the great room and other first floor spaces were nearly complete.
The master bedroom really feels cozy now that the walls are in place.

The drywall work continues today (Saturday the 13th) as the crew arrived at about 8:15 for a full day of work. They should be able to begin taping and mudding on Monday.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
