Warm Walls

Finally – we have drywall. The drywall hangers took two days to put walls on almost all the surfaces in the house. They were really something to watch. The taping crew comes tomorrow to start their work.

But before we had drywall, we had insulation. Most of the walls and the two roofs all have blown cellulose. The plumbing-pipe-filled exterior walls have mineral wool batts in case there’s ever a leak (cellulose doesn’t dry out very easily). The interior walls and ceilings also have mineral wool for soundproofing.

Last Saturday, we hosted an Open House for NESEA’s Green Buildings Open House Tour. The attendees were lucky that our drywall installation was delayed and they were able to see inside our walls. Only on a green house tour would the attendees WANT to see inside someone’s walls!
