So Close!

So Close!

Our cabin is nearly ready for use! Alex, my mom, Leon, and I headed out to Winthrop for a three-day weekend to celebrate my birthday and work on what seems to be a never-ending punch list of little tasks that need to be completed before we start enjoying the house. I spent much of the last couple trips sealing and installing the custom rusted-steel trim for the baseboards and doors. It came out looking really cool, I think, and adds a nice rustic touch to the look of the place. Thanks to our neighbor Michael Guilfoil for the idea.

The house is really coming along. Here's what's happened lately:

  • Finished air sealing and achieved .50 ACH at 50 pascals with blower door test
  • Installed Roxul Safe-N'Sound acoustical mineral insulation in all interior walls and most floor joist bays
  • Completed exterior siding
