The tapers continue to work away... as demonstrated by this very revealing picture :-)

Drywall progress

The drywall is about 50% done.  Next week is all about taping, then we can get to the finishing side of things.  Looking good!

The stairtech guys arrived right on time today to install the two sets of stairs to the basement.  Ignacio will by happy to know that we managed to squeak a 6'6" clearance on the bottom set (just enough for his 6'4" height!).  The open risers on the top run will look great.

Foam and batt!

With the cathedral ceiling sitting underneath the roof proper, we've used R31 batt insulation.  With the rest of the house, we've gone with 2lb spray foam that provides a 100% air and moisture barrier.  With all the windows in the house, it was a good decision by the owners to go with foam!

Windows complete

What a dramatic difference!  The windows look great.... albeit privacy might be an issue!

Window installation starts

John's crew was hard at work stripping the old crappy windows out and fitting the new, beautiful windows back in place.  They should be done tomorrow.
