The Ashland House: An Update

The carpenters have finished putting the cedar siding up on the addition (with the exception of the dormers on the 2nd floor). Remember that the siding arrived pre-primed. It will be painted later in Benjamin Moore Weimaraner. Full Disclosure: While Benjamin Moore should be paying me lots ‘O $$$ for linking them they are not because this is not a sponsored post.

The drywall guys were busy working when I arrived yesterday. I am going to share some pictures with you but please keep in mind that pictures of drywall are boring. I apologize for the quality of these. They were taken as the sun was setting which, combined with the temporary lighting, resulted in a bit of haze.

Evan's Closet Partial Drywall

Upstairs closet in the Kiddo’s room.

Master Bath Shower

This picture was taken from the Master Bathroom looking into the Kiddo’s bathroom.  The wood framing in the foreground is for the Master Bathroom shower.

Evan's room with partial drywall

Kiddo’s bedroom.  The drywall will run across those beams you see up top.  It will be a nice & cozy room once finished.  🙂

Upstairs Hallway Toward Master Bedroom

The is the hallway leading to the Master Bedroom.  The square hole on the left wall is for the laundry chute.  Once you walk through the doorway in the center the ceilings are at cathedral height.

Troy's Closets

Here are the Husband’s closets.  Since he rarely reads this blog I will take this opportunity to tell you that he has more clothes than me.  True story.  He will deny it.  XO if you are reading this Parchy.

I’m almost finished with this post but first I want to tell you that our new furnace is amazing! It has been running at The Ashland House for the past week in order to regulate the temperature for the drywall installation. Last night I stood next to it and made the following observation: Standing next to the new furnace while it is running is quieter than our current furnace when we are in the living room.

Our current furnace is located in a closet on the lower level and our living room is upstairs.  It’s so loud when it runs it makes the lower level uninhabitable (at least for me because I don’t want to be there when it’s running). I am such a fan of the new furnace that I will take a picture of it and share it with you in a subsequent post.

As always, thanks for reading and have a Joyful Day!

      Oh yeah! When the drywall goes up it starts to look like real rooms! And hooray for quiet furnaces! I’ve lived in places where you have to shout to be heard over the noise!

        Thanks Joe! I love the construction process. It is so fascinating to me. We are very fortunate to be able to do this project and all of the guys working on the house take pride in their work. I think that shows!
