TAKING SHAPE

House moving day!

House moving day!

Just over a year ago, we moved this house across snowy fields to it’s new location and then waited many months to dig a basement and foundation. Next, the not so fun job of removing all of the home’s plaster walls and ceilings, old (and disgusting) insulation, layers of flooring and the original venting, pipes and electrical began. After all of that work, it was time to start rebuilding the inside of the home.

The part of putting the house back together that I’ve really been waiting for is finally upon us – the drywall. I never thought I could get so excited about drywall, but I am.

It took some time to get everything properly framed and insulated and get the electrician and the plumber in to do their magic before the drywall could go on. Because we are drywalling our basement ceiling as well, we needed to make sure that anything and everything that had to be up in the basement ceiling – any wiring, plumbing, heating and cooling, central vac, etc. was in correctly (and approved by the building inspector) before it can be covered. So we can finally breath a sigh of relief as the crew have started to put up the drywall which really makes the house start to take shape. The original frame of the house built in 1965 will once again be covered up and provide a sturdy shell for our home. Next on the agenda, painting!
