Thanks for the update.

Things are coming along nicely.
Looks like you will have a beautiful home when it's done.

Our Dream House


Talked to my friend yesterday and he is going to come out after Christmas and mud and tape the bathrooms. Talked to him about tiling the bathroom walls. The floors we can do, but the walls scare me!
The bathroom with just the tub and toilet hubby built a a linen closet to the left of it so there is a wall there. Also put some Great Stuff under the tub before setting it in place to do a thermal barrier between it and the concrete floor.

Well this was some bad luck for us today!
Something popped in my right knee and I am on crutches and wearing a brace. So there goes my plans to try to finish painting the house tomorrow.
Hubby was coming back from town and lost the replacement window for the one son shot a rock through while mowing the yard this fall.

Hopefully things get better. I always tell hubby when things go wrong they will be better later.

Sounds like we have the same kind of luck. Always one step forward and two steps back.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

BTW, I am curious though, how someone "loses" a whole window.

The windows are Pellas so we only had to get the half sash that had the broken glass. Hubby had 50 sheets of sheet rock on the bed of his truck and no room up front for the window so he put it in the back and since he did not know the window was in he did not take any tie down straps.
He is guessing that when an 18 wheeler passed him the wind from it blew the window out. Also was pretty windy up here yesterday so that could have done it too.

Yep.

That's bad luck alright.

Basement bathroom







No it is not painted yet. That is the blue board.
I want to start tiling the floors so bad! But cannot kneel down right now.

Now is there anything we want to do over the hardi board before tiling?
I am thinking water proof, water proof, water proof!

What kind of ceiling will cover the trusses? Have you researched that? It takes a little effort to get the correct fire rating on any ceiling assembly other than 2X 5/8" GWB

Since we have about 2-3 electrical junction boxes in the ceiling we are going to cut the sheet rock in 2x2 squares and make them removable to access the workings between the floors. Hubby had first thought to do a fiberglass type of panel but he changed his mind and is going to use fire rated sheet rock. Going to make a wood trim to hide the seams.

We cannot put a ceiling up there in which we cannot access these junction boxes.

Checked our duct work last night and there are a couple of duct seams that need to be taped to stop the air leaks.

Depending on your local interpretations and the type of fire ratings needed, you may be require to tape all GWB joints, which would make you access panel impossible. At that point you may need fire rated access panel for $$$$$$$.

Alternately, your entire structure may be a non rated Type V or IV, and no sheet rock is needed per code.

Well good news concerning my knee. Nothing was broken, torn or ripped. I do have arthritis, but that is no surprise.
They believe my ACL was out of place and snapped back into place and that was the pop. Started physical therapty.

Hubby has been working on the basement ceiling and has told me no more posting pictures of it til he is done. All I can say is it looks awesome!

Friend came out and mudded and taped the bathrooms.

Been off work sine the 27th. Hope to get back soon.
