finish!

for the first time, i passed an inspection without first failing.  crazy.  they are supposed to inspect the insulation and ensure that the house meets all the current energy code reqts., but i don’t think he even came today.  i just got a bye.  i was gone during the day a total of 10 minutes, and i don’t think i missed him.  he just got rained out.

so, last night, fueled by pizza and beer, we started finish…  pictures following of the new front (note mailbox and tree well), the future kitchen still very undressed – but a great shot of the insulation, and finally the 3rd floor hallway.

today (friday) two great carpenters, who you may remember from the cypress decking, start rebuilding the stairway with birch plywood and 12″ gluelams.  they are meant to be structural beams, but here their beauty will be appreciated.  they should be working about 7 days, going all the way up to the top.

progress on stairs day #1 pictures to come tonight.
