Outside Stucco

The outside of the house has been scratched and browned; we finished that about 3 weeks ago. We had fun doing it. Michelle did a great job embedding objects in the brown coat, like stones, tiles, sprockets and bones.

The color coat will have to wait until next year.

Main Floor Stucco Part 1

We have been slowly working on the main floor stucco. As of last weekend we completed the scratch coat. Roman and Chris did the brown coat on the West wall. It looks amazing and took a lot longer that Roman thought. Working around the windows is challenging.

Attic Insulation

I started insulating the attic this weekend. It took most of a day to get ready to insulate and most of a day to do the ceiling in Julia's room.

We are using Ultra Touch from Bonded Logic. It is mostly recycled denim and other cotton fiber, treated with a borate solution. It is nice to work with, though tough to cut.
