KCI Hard at work

Since my husband returned from his meditation center, we've kicked some serious butt.  Bob, Jeff and I have built cabinets, caulked and insulated the ceiling, put the battens on, and, and, and.  I'm sure there's a bunch of other things but my mind is mush.  We start at 8 am and usually finish by 6 or 7 pm.  Dinner has not been much to speak of as you can imagine.

Insulating is interesting. Maybe there are quicker ways of doing it, but it seemed to take me forever.  First I cut and glued 2 inch extruding foam between each roof truss.  Each one had to be individually measured and cut, and then there were little jigs and jags around roof protruding things – usually wood, sometimes misfired nails.  Styrofoam boards at the top need to be cut on a 45% angle, otherwise it's just straight cuts. The 2 inch boards were cut with a skill saw. Then I did it all again with a 1/2 board.  This took 2 days. It was a mistake to apply low expanding foam in between the first and second layer.  The 1/2 inch boards were a pleasure to work with. It's just a matter of using a T ruler and cutting with box cutters.  A good snap pulls it apart.

Bob built the front door, but we'll have to get glass put in.

We're moving Friday, so whatever isn't finished by tomorrow, is not getting done until a later date.
