Week 6: A 5 day week.

We have a couple sides finished with siding, another couple days to finish up. We have 3 days on it now. We wired most everything up until we pour the basement floor. We put the plumbing all in until we get the sinks and flushes in and we plumbed the shower. We put in air exchanger ducts and second floor heat ducts. Furnace and first floor heat duct goes in after basement floor is poured. Cold air return is in to upstairs, first floor ones later when furnace is in. Upstair one goes through a side wall so dust bunnies from the loom don't get eaten. :D We will insulate all around the bathroom. We will also insulate the ceiling of the first floor for sound deadening. So insulation and gyprock arrived today. You will see a hole near the window and a pile of gyprock on the floor. It had to come through that hole. The sheets are 12 feet long. Much easier than navigating up a stair case. :D We have to install a water line and drain to the washer like the one shown, a new code thing.



 

Shower is 60" long and 36" deep,  will have glass door.



 

Washer hookup, new code requirement. I guess they don't trust a pipe with a tap. :D



 

Hole to get 12' gyprock upstairs ;D



 


The pink panther is on the loose.

Loom studio space and almost finished sheet rock on second floor. :)

L corner with 7' wide corridor to closet and shelving area. Still some sheet rocking to do around the closet, and some cutting around the door. The dark line in the ceiling will be where a man hole will be cut out. We will access the attic to blow in insulation from there.



Still have to install the pot lights in the long slopes. Those will swivel to any angle. Space left open there to get up there to finish the wiring to them. Not a big job there, just need to cut holes and wire them, the line is already run to them and the switch. There will be 6.



That window is 6' x 8'. The room itself is 32' long and 16' deep plus the L corner.

Wow! Your house is awesome. I really appreciate the pictures and descriptions. All of the bedrooms are on the first floor? Are any in the basement?

One on the first floor, one on the second floor. You can see the door way to the upstairs bedroom next to the stair well. :)

No rooms in the basement, it will not be finished down there, other than the wooden walls with sheet rock. I will have a wood furnace there, a wood room, utility room and storage areas. There are petitions for the wood area, but not closed in, other than strapped. I want air flow. :)

Is there code for fire protection requiring sheet rock behind a wood wall?

2" clearance I believe between insulated chimney and combustibles.

They will be crack filling, starting on Tuesday, is the plan, and by the weekend painting will possibly begin. The painter said he likes to paint for my contractor.

We have been crack filling this week. More yet to do, but they will let it set a day to dry good. This was in three days, upstairs and down.






Also, I bought my paint today. That is an expensive little pile of 22 gallons. But, it is the best to. ;D

My Dad paints interiors, I have know idea how he can do that all day without going mad!  He is a big fan of the Ben Moore stuff, said the same thing, expensive but real good.

Looks great! Why do you cut the cement floors?

They do same on garage floors, in case you get a crack in it, you can contain it and repair it. I've seen garages have cuts every 3 feet across.
