Wow, how time flies?  It’s been a couple weeks since our last posting.  We were finally able to make some progress in the last week.

We passed our insulation inspection.  I have to say here it took us two tries.  Who’d thunk it?  Apparently, some of our ESR reports on EPS foam were expired and we needed to do some more fire blocking.  Well, it wasn’t hard but still funny to have failed insulation inspection once when we have more than twice the R-value required.

So, we were able to install drywall.  The process took just two days.  A huge change seem to have occurred in the drywall world.  None of the supply houses around here carry regular drywall.  The only 1/2″ drywall I could find were Ultralight.  They weight about 30% less than regular drywall.  Here’s some information about it. http://theweighthasbeenlifted.com

I tried lifting a 4′ x 12′.  It really wasn’t too bad.  I think the lighter weight is definitely beneficial in terms of shipping costs, installation speed and better for the backs of the workers, especially when installing ceilings.  

With drywall up, it is much easier for me to visualize the final product.
