Drywall almost done

This week the last of the drywall is being installed and then, the panels will be taped & topped with gypsum topping. Parallel to that, the lathing on the exterior continues and we expect to see scratch coat by the end of the week. This is the time to nail down finishes decisions- tiles, wood floors, stone etc. Sometimes, the materials picked earlier are no longer available and alternatives need to be found.
The photo shows the upper floor clerestory with the high windows we'll use to vent the hot air out in those warm summer nights (yeah, not this year- but in general). The drywall on the jambs and head is still missing.


  1. funny thing re-reading your post; little did anyone know that a summer blast to end all summer blasts would soon be hitting us; would have been a perfect time to test out the clerestory windows!

  2. ..and then -only one week later- the temperature dropped 40 degrees. Something is wrong here...
