More progress

The framers made good progress on the siding last week. They're a bit over half way done: 

They finished the south and east sides of the house. They still have the north and west sides, and the gables to do,  and they still have to  finish up the porch trim. They should get everything done by the end of the  week (weather permitting).

Friday was a bit hectic. The framers were putting up siding, the insulator was spraying insulation on the first floor, the electrician was adding some outlets in the garage and a heat detector in the workshop, the drywall supplier was delivering drywall, the Energy Start inspector was there, and the village inspector was there. All at the same time. I was relieved to go to work!

So insulation is done, and both the village and energy star inspectors approved. The drywallers showed up on Saturday:

Yep. There were about a dozen guys there laying about 350 sheets of 4x12 drywall on Saturday. So we no longer have a skeleton. We have rooms! At least on the second floor. They finished drywalling everything on the second floor, the first floor ceiling, and the garage. They should finish putting up the drywall on Monday, and even get the first coat of mud on. So by the end of the week, we should be ready to start the finish work.
