The last week and weekend has been a bunch of projects so I’ll just update using pictures on all the work that’s been done recently.
During the week we had a crew working on the siding on the back side of the house! They got the siding installed and the soffit stripped and all primed (new siding primed too). good progress. Our contractor is back today getting paint on the soffit and siding and when the crew comes back they’ll install the red molding and take down the pump jacks.
Progress from Monday – just our contrctor getting the base piece on, the tar paper up and the window cab on.
Tuesday progress – siding 1/2 way up
Siding all the way up on the next day
Everything is scraped and primed now!
On Friday I got the front stairs sanded and stained in anticipation of rain this weekend (there wasn’t any of course)
The color is supposed to match exactly but it doesn’t - I’m pretty sure the deck used to be reddish like this and age just darkened it.
Also last week our contractor finished the front hall closet door – got the knob installed and the door fits very nicely now!
Closet door done!
We had our neighbor help with demo cleanup and room prep Friday and Saturday so with that help and our time Saturday and Sunday we got the Master bedroom and back bedroom ready for insulation. Wiring is just about done (i’ll finish securing some wires tonight) and rooms are nice and cleaned up.
Master bedroom – light is wired, outlets are wired (from existing outlets) and rooms is ready for insulation and sheetrock!
Ryan framed out the new door that goes to the master bathroom
A few wires for me to secure tonight but otherwise this room is ready!
The back bedroom is a step behind the master bedrom, only because the light isn’t wired yet. The outlets just need to be secured (and existing wires need to be put into new boxes) – then that room is also ready for both insulation and sheetrock! These 2 rooms are moving along quickly. We are leaving baseboards in these rooms and sheetrocking up to them. Then we’ll just put the baseboard caps on.
Back bedroom – all cleaned up and ready to go!
I got the attic all cleaned up (the side that needs insulation still). I have some stuff that goes in the garbage but otherwise the attic is ready for insulation too!
Attic cleaned out
A productive weekend, we also had a yard sale on Sunday to get rid of some stuff from the attic. Now I just have a trip to the library to get rid of some books and everything else stays/goes with us
I’m hoping to have a few nights this week to complete some projects. It’s our last week here officially so I’m hoping for it to be productive! After that it’s just weekends!
