Insulation was installed on Wednesday. Wow, what a difference! It’s *quiet*, and the temperature in the house is much more stable. (Not so cold in the morning nor hot in the afternoon.) I thought they were only going to do … Continue reading
(Update: I forgot to include the pictures. Doh!) It’s been a while since I’ve posted–too busy working on the house to write much about it! The stucco crew was out last week and got the house wrapped and lathed. (And … Continue reading
I’ve been busy working on the wiring lately, so I haven’t posted anything for a while. This turned out to be a good thing, because Don and J Moreno read my last post and hadn’t seen anything new on the … Continue reading

Our addition is “decked” and the first few walls have been framed! Check out more photos on the [addition framing photoset](http://www.flickr.com/photos/sonicchicken/sets/72157600226916982/) on Flickr. The framer is expecting to be finished by tomorrow night. As my teenager says, “Woot!”
Between Andy, Barb, and me, we got all the walls of the quilt shop sheathed, although I still need to drive some more nails into the middle of the OSB panels. We also need to sheath the gables. Once that’s … Continue reading
