the Ridge: week 18/19

The week before last (week 18), ‘Quality Interior Kontracting’┬ástarted to install blown-in cellulose. This insulation, made from recycled paper, is blown ‘wet’ into the wall cavities – filling all nooks and crannies. Then it will have some time to dry over the holidays before the vapour barrier and drywall get installed.

Meanwhile, the carpenters installed pine T&G on the cantilever soffits.

And last week (19) some of the red steel fascia and clear cedar T&G siding from Boards by George was installed. – It’s gorgeous!
