Ready. Set. Drywall!

We're ready for drywall! Nate has been feeling a bit overwhelmed by the little details, but he continues to do an amazing job. The last two weeks have been busy with inspections - framing, plumbing, electrical, insulation have all passed "rough" and we're hoping the HVAC company will call in their final inspection on Monday morning so Ben, our drywall contractor can start hanging on Monday. He has a team of 5 or 6 and they expect to have it all hung by Friday. I have a feeling this is going to feel like a huge step forward...making our stud exposed house seem more like a home.

Pictures from today:

Pink insulation, strapped on for fire blocking, required by code

Glorious attic (view from the storage room)

Kids' and guest bath

The guest room wins the award for most windows

From living room, looking into front entry, where we added a coat closet and widened the doorway

From the dining room, looking into the kitchen and playroom

I'm super excited to have a pantry...

She's feeling warm and loved these days
