Renovation: Weeks 19-22

It’s been a few weeks since my last house update.

I’ve posted some new photos of the project.

The new insulation has been sprayed. It’s a foam type of insulation that dries solid. It not only acts as an insulator, but also as a sealant, filling in little cracks that could let air in and out of the house. In some places it is up to 12 inches thick — mostly in the attic.

After that, work on the drywall began. By this point, it’s pretty much done and interior painting should be starting this week. After the painting, the next thing will be the floor restoration.

Concrete work got started last week. The porches are being re-built now, and in the photo below, you can see the forms starting to be in place for them.

So the appearance of the interior has changed dramatically over the past few weeks, mainly because there are now walls there.

Here’s the usual sample photo:
