INSULATION: DONE.

photo 1RE-CAP:

On Tuesday, Deltec sprayed in SEALECTION 500 open-cell spray foam insulation on our stud walls, between the rafters of our cathedral ceiling, and in some of the cavities between the C-channels under the containers.

They sprayed this against the inside of the exterior container walls (three sides of our home). This foam will act as a complete moisture barrier, preventing any possibility of condensation issues within our walls. Tomorrow the city inspects! Fingers, toes, and eyes all crossed for a GREEN CARD.

Finally Adam came by this evening with Progress/Duke energy, and put in the order for a power pole to be dug in and a line run down into the ground and run underground to our home. I have to finish chopping down the locust tree in their way, so tonight I will be dumping gasoline down two yellow-jacket holes. Hopefully this will kill both hives completely. I HATE yellow-jackets. Wish me luck!

Over the next week we will be concentrating on drywall and exterior siding/soffiting.

Goodnight everyone!
