Last week Warren and crew sheetrocked the main room on the first floor. Before they could do this, gaskets were installed along the exterior walls and furring nailed on the ceiling, same as the second floor. The main objective of the gaskets was to seal the exterior walls from air leakage originating from inside the house.
The only remaining areas to sheetrock are the two small rooms off the main space (pantry and study), the window returns and the 1st floor stair area. Hopefully Howie will begin taping later this week. We’re in a race to finish taping and painting the first floor before the wood floor and kitchen cabinets arrive in 2 weeks.
