Dry-Wall Day 3, 4, 5
The house has now been fully hung with all of the drywall. I was expecting the house to look smaller, but honestly I think it looks the same if not bigger since each room is now visible without looking through the studs. The dry-wallers must have worked very odd hours, because when my wife would drive past at about 2 they usually had left for the day. The dry-wall finishers should be coming sometime this week to mud and sand the walls. The process is supposed to take a week or two so hopefully we can start priming and painting in the next 2 weeks.
Unfortunately things went a little slower than expected and they were not able to pour the porch or start on the siding on the exterior of the house. I talked to Curt on Friday and he is expecting the concrete to be poured on Monday and then the siding to begin on Wednesday. It will be nice to see the siding up to make the exterior of the house stand out. I am excited and nervous regarding the siding color as we didn't go with a traditional color and I am just hoping that it turns out good.
Also while I was on the phone with Curt I inquired about when the trim would be in so I could prime and paint the trim before the finish carpenter gets in... I am hoping that we can still paint it before it gets put up, but it will all depend on what day we get the trim in...
I tried not to duplicate the pictures and add all pictures from day 3,4,5 so most of the pictures below are after day 5, but I did put in a couple from earlier days.
