This past week we had some sunny cold weather, and some warmer grey/snowy weather. These photos were taken this afternoon, which was the latter. The house is closed in right now, meaning the roof is dried in, all the windows and doors from Jeld-Wen are installed, and the other openings have temporary doors. Once all the soffit is installed, there will be no more cold drafts coming through the house. We are also still hoping to get our 1″ spray of insulation late next week and begin heating the house with some temporary heaters.
The crew has finished the exterior window trim, and is working outside right now on the soffit installation. They will move from this to the corner trim and the siding. The plumber has done some of the waste line venting, and the HVAC subs are working on their ducts. They will be onsite next week to start running ducts and to install the stove pipe out the chimney. The electrician has finished the electrical service outside, and the outside panel. He’s now working on the inside panel and on wiring the garage.
Next week the subs will continue their rough-in, and we’ll work on scheduling the mason and the roofer to complete their work up high.
