finishing out the inside,
we spray foamed all exterior walls, attic was blown in with 16", interior walls we use bat for minimizing sound.













Rocked the fireplace using real rock instead of man made, the mantle is an old sweet gum (I think) cross tie that was used as a fence post in our pasture....













Had the custom cabinets built and installed.....

Beautiful work CC!
You're building a beautiful home.
Question: when the exterior walls are foamed-what is used to shave the foam so that it isn't 'proud' to the framing studs?

The company I hired used a battery operated saws all with a long blade, the pic showing a guy on the ladder is using it, the long blackand skinny thing on his left side is the blade, I've also seen people use what looks like a big wishbone with a heated piano wire.

The company that did mine said the closed cell has a slightly higher R value but a much higher price and considering where I live, central Alabama, he recommended the open cell.

sorry, I tried to add a comp chart.  you all can google it as well.  cost and water permeability is a big diff.  R value and structural stiffness are also a consideration
