Insulation and drywall prep

The insulators were insulating the house during our pre-drywall meeting yesterday.  I drove over to the house last night to see how it looked.  Almost all of our "fixes" that were identified at pre-drywall were corrected yesterday afternoon.  Hats off to both my Project managers they make things happen almost immediately.  That makes me very happy.  Yesterdays progress includes installation of 2 grounding rods and ground wire, installation of the electrical box, installation of all wiring for included and extra outdoor outlets, and of course the insulation.  I'm glad to read that some of my fellow bloggers who also attended pre-drywall meetings yesterday were happy with the progress of their homes.  Here are some insulation pics:

  1. So cool that they fixed most fo the stuff right away. Love that big window in the morning room!

    1. I think my PM is great...on thins right away

  2. Taking pictures of the framing before they close up the walls is a really smart idea. We did the same thing in our build.

    1. I agree makes it easier to find things later if there is ever a problem

  3. When the subfloor insulation is present in a crawlspace which has the foundation vents open, the humidity is trapped in the crawlspace. As the condensation drips, it eventually evaporates and raises the relative humidity even more. Continued high humidity is absorbed by the wood subfloor and reaches a moisture content level high enough to grow mold .
