The house is looking more and more complete on the inside, and now it looks like we’ll be closing on the house the second week of May, a little sooner than originally expected.
There’s still a lot of details left (plumbing, touch up painting, etc) as well as landscaping, but as of today it looks like most of the major things are in.
Up in the attic, there’s an additional layer of blown insulation covering the fibreglass batt insulation. Looks pretty good. Seems like the layer of blown insulation should be thicker, but that’s just based on what I’ve seen from the old house where I think almost all the insulation was blown. I’m sure whatever is there is probably enough.
There’s no insulation over the garage part, which isn’t unexpected. Most of the garage will end up being workspace, so I think if it ends up being too uncomfortable to work in, it would be easy enough for me to add a layer or two of batt insulation to the space above the garage.
The rest of the house is looking pretty good. All the rooms have carpet in them, and the wood floors look pretty good. The wood floors are glued to the slab, so if I ever decide to replace them, it’s going to be a pretty big job.
The appliance garage we opted for got installed in the corner. It takes up some counter space, but will give us a place to tuck things away when they’re not being used. One of the outlets in the kitchen even has two USB charging ports!
Now that we have a closing date, this will kick off a lot of things on the TODO list. The next few months are going to be pretty busy.
