Our insulator, Don Patton, has been blowing cellulose in the attic and second floors for the last 2 days. He’s blown 24 inches in the attic thus far. This will require some topping up a few extra inches to account for settling. We want a settled depth of 24″ for an average value of R-75. He also completed the second floor insulation today. It was a good time to be insulating, considering the temperature this morning dipped into the lower 30′s.
Next items on the schedule, finish sheetrocking the second floor and basement., then the priming begins. The gutters should arrive next week and we have siding to finish on the west, south and east sides. We also had the tub surround template measured this week and the shower base is ready to install.
In addition to all the normally scheduled activities, we’re trying to make the house and site presentable for the October 1st Green Buildings Open House Tour sponsored by the NESEA and the National Solar Tour. You’re all invited.
