We had a good day on the siding at the Norton Shores house. The front and one side is done and it looks like the weather will stay cooperative to get the rest finished up by the end of the week. We installed the aluminum wrap on all of the exterior window trim. Between the new siding and the roof, its starting to look like a new house.

We were rained out today. Tomorrow should be better and we can keep moving on the siding at the Norton Shores house. The electrical rough in was completed today and we should have the building rough in inspection done in the next couple days. Once that gets approved we are clear to insulate and drywall the interior.

Well, all of this rain has made it quite difficult to any of the siding going at the Norton Shores house. WE did however, manage to get some of the new fascia installed on the eaves. We also removed the old exterior wall between the old bedroom and the new addition. We also frame and installed the new egress window in the bedroom portion. Hopefully we'll get dry weather tomorrow.

We found out that there was no insulation in the walls of the house we are adding onto in Norton shores so today we blew in insulation in the existing walls. We also just about finished the soffit and fascia on the eaves. The electrical rough in is done as well as the plumbing so we should be able to insulate and drywall the first of next week. Tomorrow we will start on the new siding.
