This week we have a new neighbor!
Frosty, is a very impressive double stacked snowman, who is kind enough to keep a close eye on our place.
He always greets me with a smile:o)
While Frosty really likes the cold, we don't. Which brings us to...
Yes, the spray foam insulation is in place downstairs. The interior 2x4 walls, and the small gap between the wood wall and poured concrete wall are now filled with insulation.
In addition, we insulated the ceiling of the game room to minimize the amount of sound in our bedroom.
I am not sure how clear it is in the photos, but this stuff almost looks like frosting :o)
Back on the outside, the gutters are almost done. We have one section on the south side of the house yet to complete. The installers are double checking the location of the downspouts with our architect.
The siding is also almost done. The south side of the house needs to be done. The area of the front door will be waiting until the front steps and supports are in place, so the guys can make sure to get a good fit.
Weather has been an issue lately. When temperatures are too cold, we simply can't have guys working outside, especially on a metal roof. I am hoping after this cold spell we can start moving more quickly.
We also got some good news from our Solar Installers (Innovative Power Systems). They got some information we have been waiting for about the Powerwall battery backup system!
So far, it looks very promising that it will work well with our project.
We don't have specific timing yet, however, I it looks pretty good for a summer availability, and possibly even late spring!
Mark really doesn't like to talk about himself, the house is much more interesting.
