Shop – Drywall Part 1


Well drywall is geting done this week. That is one thing I just dont have the skill or physical ability to do ourselfs. We had Eduardo Lezama (512-350-8997) and crew hook us up. They did some work for us at our other house, Clean work site, On time, great communication, and reasonably priced.

Shop – Insulating Part 1

Got the Insulation going this weekend. The insulation/radian barrier that the builder installed is like the this Reflectix. According to the site it had a 3.7 R Value. I really did not get it for the insulation properties but rather it barrier properties. It will help with the condensation that happens down here on the metal roofs and buildings.
The walls have R19 all the was around:
And R30 in the ceiling:
  Still need to do a little finishing, should be able to start dry walling soon.

Came out pretty straight:
All finished up with the fire breaks. We are pretty happy with the way it came out:
