Today has been a wonderful day, for many reasons, but one big reason was because today we were able to walk upstairs, and look at some of the views we’ll have from the bedrooms!! A temporary stairs was fitted, to make access to the upstairs much easier. We also got a ramp to the front door. Usually in a new build the builders use ladders until the permanent stairs is installed. That seems like madness to me, but there you go!
Big sister asked how we’re going to keep the house warm, because the wood (in its present state) doesn’t look very warm! Indeed, there is still much ventilation passing through the house.. You can check out this link to see how the house will be insulated! Though the brand of the insulation in the video is different, the one we are using will do the same thing!
Today’s photos show the new stairs, and the down stairs in the process of being cleaned up. The joisted were bridged and the plywood upstair was layed and sealed. What really impressed me today was how everyone was so concerned with attention to detail. To have the place looking tidy and clean, with all the wood shavings brushed away. To see the scrap wood, which will be used later for other jobs, neatly piled in one room. Keeping the place clean and tidy, takes time.. but makes the working environment safer and more pleasant!
Thanks guys for your hard work!
