The drywallers have been working hard, and all the panels are now hung, taped, and mudded. Since we last visited the site, they have come back and sprayed zero-VOC primer and a light orange-peel texture. The zero-VOC paint should be sprayed by Monday.

We got a good idea of what the interior of the house would look like once the framing was complete, but there's nothing like drywall to make the house seem more finished. The white surfaces brighten up the interior, and the size and shape of the rooms really come into focus.

Next up is the finish carpentry, flooring, interior doors and trim, cabinet installation, electrical and plumbing trim, HVAC hookup, and a few other miscellaneous to-dos. The finish line is in sight!
