Siding and Sealing

Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - Day 59

We've had a flurry of activity out at the Ranch in the last few days.  They showed up with drywall on Monday.  It rained that day, so not much else got accomplished outside, but they got some framing done around the pipes and vents in the basement. 

It was about 85 degrees and sunny on Tuesday and the Amish crew started on the siding. 

The weather was warm again today and they got a lot done.  The transom window for above the front door finally showed up.  They finished the siding and got some more brick work done.  There's a slight problem with the siding though.  There are supposed to be boards framing the windows and doors in the back that the workers forgot.  We'll post some updated pictures once they fix that issue. 

Finally, the insulation guys came today and started spraying the walls with insulating foam.

And without further adieu, here are the pictures:

Drywall piles in every room!

Framework in the basement.

Sealing up the walls with foam.

A view from the back. They got all the siding on.  We are supposed to have wood frames around all of the windows and the patio door.  Ooopsie daisy.  Sucks to be the guys who have to redo all this work!

They made some progress on the bricks and got the shakes installed above the garage door.

Finally, they got the siding around the entry finished and nailed the wood around the front columns.  We've been waiting on that transom window for a couple of weeks now.  Someone forgot to order it...

Well that's all for now. We'll be back in a few days with some more updates!
