The Build: Week 19

Wednesday, December 12th – Tuesday, December 18th

Surprise, surprise, it’s a Christmas miracle!
We returned home from Tennessee to find a fully sided house and a garage floor.

I got a better look at what was happening inside on day 128 while I was out for a walk. The insulation was blown along the seams and more of that pink, fluffy, cotton candy-like stuff was delivered. The furnace has yet to be installed but I’m really hoping we’ll start to see drywall soon, as long as it can be done safely 🤞

The mason also paid us a visit and I did feel bad for the fella. The temporary garage doors were still up so he wasted a few hours tearing all of that down. He was able to apply his first coat on Friday and finished the job today, Tuesday.

With the holidays just around the corner I don’t imagine we’ll see much progress next week, but a girl can dream!
