The siding, for now, is done! OK, you may notice a spot around the front door without siding yet.
That section is waiting until the front steps are poured, so the guys can get as good a fit as possible.
It was very cool watching the siders working in the screen porch area, they also did the ceiling of the screen porch.
And, on Friday, the roofers started with the standing seam metal roofing!
They are starting with the south roof of the garage. In the slideshow above you can see that section is almost complete.
Each section spans the full height of the roof and is about as wide as a ladder.
Downstairs, we added a bit more spray foam insulation on some of the south wall. Because the south wall is exposed on the outside, we wanted more insulation. Where the wall is up against earth, less insulation is needed as the earth is much warmer than the air outside in the winter.
We also met with the solar installers last week.
We need a couple more conduits from the inverters outside to the planned battery pack inside. As the drywall is ready to go this week, and the conduits will be far easier to install before the drywall, we are going to try to get that done early this week so as to not delay the drywall.
Please cross your fingers for me:)
Mark really doesn't like to talk about himself, the house is much more interesting.
