Construction, week 2

How’s that for an imaginative title? So it’s actually Tuesday of week three and I’m in bed with a migraine and I’m so thankful I have Tyana to take the kids and Dan and Dave are working downstairs do the work doesn’t stop just because I’m in pain.

We go a lot done last week, so I’ll give a little rundown.

Monday: installed the den window. After the false start the Friday before, it went pretty quickly Monday. Daniel did most of the work and I would cut the pieces to size. I did a couple supports so u could get comfortable with the nail gun.

Tuesday: Daniel framed the kitchen window while I insulated the den. By the end I’d the day, the second window was in.

Wednesday: half day because I got a call from Tom of Living Woods that the cabinets were built and I needed to go to San Leandro to see them and also Dan’s compressor broke and he had to take it back and get a new one. But that afternoon, we started rocking the den.

Thursday: finished rocking the den and cleaned up in there. Designed an exterior trim to deal with a 1″ depth difference between the siding and the window.

Friday: I spent a lot of time with the saws-all getting a filled in foot frame even with all the other studs on the kitchen. Then I started insulating in there. Daniel worked on the exterior if the windows, making the trim.

And now we’re walking the kitchen. I can’t believe how fast it’s all going.

Here are some pics of the progress.
