Hello readers, soo...the farm stand sure is changing rapidly these days. The insulators have been working hard out at the farm both yesterday and today spraying cellulose into the stud bays and sealing them up with plastic. They finished up this afternoon, and that means the dry-wallers can come out on Monday morning and start doing what they do. The place is really starting to look like it has actual rooms that people will want to go into and do things besides mess around with lumber and power tools. And, it's really starting to make the timber frame stand out as well, but I'm sure once the drywall is in it will really make it pop out at you even more. On a side note, this is also a specifically interesting stage of construction for me because of my dad's business as a land surveyor/building inspector. As a kid I got to spend lots of time with him walking through unfinished houses and commercial buildings at this exact stage of construction so I get a little blast of nostalgia whenever I walk through. I bet he never thought I'd be doing this when I moved to Oregon :). But I digress, as for the work we've been doing... all the windows are now in, and we've been busy framing the porches and doing other important outside stuff so we could stay away from the insulation dust swirling around inside.
On another side note we had a fun visitor come out to the site today that was really interested in Oscar's shoe. He was very friendly and very clumsy, and if anybody out there knows what it is let us know!
Til' next time,
