Moving Indoors

We've had some big changes in the last couple of weeks. It has rained non-stop, but luckily we had plenty of work that needed to be done on the inside of the house. Most significantly, insulation and drywall has now been installed, and WOW does it ever look different. Last week the insulation guys came down from Memphis and finished their work in a day. Instead of just using traditional batt insulation, we decided to go with a high-density spray-in foam between the studs, with Eco-Batt on top of that. Then, our sheet rock guys showed up and started hanging drywall. They actually finished hanging it yesterday, but won't start mudding and taping the joints until today or tomorrow.


As you can see, we cleaned the inside from floor to ceiling before insulation went in


It wouldn't stay this clean for long


Spray-in foam between the studs seals off any airflow


Sprays in as a liquid, then expands and hardens


Putting Eco-Batt on top of the foam


We also put some sound-deadening insulation on some interior walls


Foam around the top of the tray ceiling in the master bedroom


The first day of drywall - dust is everywhere


Finished guest bedroom walls, ceilings and closets


Guest bedroom on the back of the house


Holes cut out for each light fixture


You can't get a much better fit than that


Routing out the opening for a light switch


These guys were as neat as possible - they even organized their scraps
