There has been just a little bit more progress on front Hardie installation – which you can see from the photo below. Inside, the taping and mudding is coming along a lot more quickly. Despite being EXTREMELY messy, the living quarters are looking fantastic. Of course, the difference between open framing and closed drywall spaces was such a shocker at first. Without ceilings between the floors everything looked so huge and spacious. But after a few days of getting used to each of the spaces being closed up, the house still feels very open and generous. The best is the brightness. Even on gloomy gray days the house feels so light and airy! I couldn’t be happier with our window choices.
