Been a bit since my last post as friends came to visit and we've taken time out with them. But things have been moving along. The hangers finally made it up and have done the 2nd and 4th floors and should finish the third floor today or tomorrow. Tapers have been doing their thing as well. Depending on whether they work the weekend, the drywall on all four floors should be finished by the end of next week. That would be fantastic! The house looks totally different as the drywall goes in. Unlike the Mutton Busting project in Nashville though, it doesn't seem as earthshaking. Perhaps because of the size, and that thay take a couple of days for each area, the change is a bit more gradual. Obviously it is a huge change, though and it is wonderful to see the spaces better defined.
The roofers finished completely permanently drying in the place late last week. They are currently working on soffit and fascia, which seems to be moving along well and faster. They need to finish the backside today as the septic begins to go in tomorrow and we won't be able to bring the Skytrak back there again for fear of crushing the septic lines.
I haven't been able to find anyone to do the t&g on the porch, the perimeter of which need to be done for the soffit on that end of the house, so Sandra and I will attempt to run those edges using the Skytrak this weekend. Going to be tricky as there isn't really much area in which to place the beast, but we'll try.
