More progress, More pictures

Ho-Ho-Ho!  Merry Christmas everyone!

Unfortunately, my energy has been spent elsewhere this month and we didn't get any Christmas cards out this year.  So consider this your holiday greeting!  Merry Christmas!  May Santa be good to you...or be naughty and save Santa the trip.

The last of the framing inspections passed without issues...as did the electrical.  Now, we just have to finish it up and get both finals.  There's still much work to be done.  Siding, soffits, landing out the back door, some sheet rock around the stairs...

Anyway, here's more pics...

The stairs.

South wall upstairs.
Bet you can't guess what we've been doing!

North wall.  Like the little window?  It's mostly for ventilation, but it's a nice little view.
The upstairs looks like it's stuffed in a sleeping bag.

Detail of the railing.  It's 1" wire grid sandwiched between 2x4's.
With a 2x6 cedar cap and bolted to the floor/floor joists.
It's not going anywhere!
My idea, but we designed it on the fly.  We really like it!
Obviously, we have the North wall left to insulate.  First Gene has to put some spacers in to allow for it.  We're getting tired.  Taking more and more nights off.  But with the insulation it's staying warmer in there.   After the North wall and the 3 ceiling bays are finished off, it should stay nice and toasty!  Then I'll bake some cookies and we'll take a nap.

Wishing you all a very merry holiday!  And thank all of you for your help and well wishes on our project!

Party on!

Gene & Coleen
