Got the final two inspections that were necessary before the drywall goes in - framing and mechanical. Drywall comes Monday and they need to haul 64 sheets from the third to the fourth floor before they begin. Meanwhile, the mechanical guys need to finish cutting in a return air grill the goes through a wall on the fourth floor. So we'll play a little dance between them and the drywall crew.
As the roof isn't fully dry as we wait on the roofer, we'll stagger where the drywall gets put up, probably moving from one floor to another and back again. The job is large enough that we should be able to keep the crew occupied the whole time and hopefully the roofer can get everything in the dry by the end of the week. Trouble is there is rain in the forecast for every day next week. But normally we can get through about 3 o'clock before it moves in.
I'm still working on things that need to be finished as well, creating a new punch list and working through it. Sandra's been insulating interior walls for abatement. We ordered three pallets of rock wool insulation for soundproofing the ceiling of the second floor, but after two weeks, HD still hadn't shipped it. So I cancelled the order and we'll head to Albuquerque Sunday to pick it up. That's another thing that has to be installed before sheetrock. But again it'll be a dance with the rockers.
I can't wait to see the drywall go on. It totally changes the look of everything and it now finally begins to look like a home inside.
