Salty, Salty Words

I would like to think I am a decent person, with good manners and a sense of decorum.  Not today!!!  Working with heavy wood above my head sends me into a swearing aria!  I’m really hoping most of the neighbors weren’t home, and definitely glad I am in a country setting so no other houses are too close.  Tonight I’m a little worn out, and I can’t tell if it’s because I got a lot done, or if it’s because I drained my energy dry from all the cussing.

At least I didn’t drop anything on my head or toes today. 🙂

Sigh.  I don’t have a “pretty” blog….

Anyway, more progress!  Approximately half of the ceiling/roof insulation/roof sheathing is done.  There is about 6″ of insulation in the floor, and 6″ in the roof.  That should really help with climate control and somewhat with sound buffering.  I have so much of the wool left that I can really pack it in to the walls when I get to that step.

Some pictures of today’s work:

Fitted the joist headers (I think that's what they're called).  Used liquid nails as well as screws, as this part of the house needs to be really strong.

I love the wool insulation.  I don't love breathing in all the little hair fibers. :)

Sundown and being tired forced me to stop at about the halfway point.

  1. I am proud of you. It’s taking shape. Working above your head with wood Is so hard as I remember doing this myself. I was often very grateful for space around me with no close neighbors because I know they would have thought poorly of me as the air was filled with expletives. I pray for your continued strength and sense of humor.
