    Step by Step by Step

    Hi everyone, us again. Today was a mix of many tasks, both on the interior and exterior.


    What the house is looking like so far.

    On the inside, we were able to begin installing the plastic to hold the spray in insulation, as well as continue to straighten interior walls for drywall installation.

    On the exterior, the majority of furring strips that go below the metal and cedar siding were meticulously installed, and the roofing crew continued to add flashing and plan how to build and layer the metal roofing.

     It was an important day of adding the hidden layers behind the finished materials. These are the important components that help with ventilation, heating/cooling, and moisture control.

    Next week we plan to have all exterior materials completed!
