The Paper is Done

Today's work was finishing up the building paper in front, and in the back around the basement door.

It went pretty decently quickly out front. It was a little fiddly around the various penetrations, but everything worked out OK. And then the rest of the wall went very, very fast. We'd left some paper hanging off the side wall and that made a perfect lap.

And this is where we left off with the back wall the other night. We didn't work around the door because it would have meant taking the door off and putting it back on, and there is only so much we are up to at the end of a long day. In the dark.

But it didn't take too long in daylight. The flashing around that drain/vent line from the washing machine was a little iffy, but we got it done with only about a million layers of building paper.

Now to have the inspection. In the meantime, it may be time to do some plumbing on a weeknight or two.

Wow, great work!

After all this time with with you wanting it to be finished, glad you're able to finally make progress on it!

So any difference in the temperature in the house now? Or is that only going to be noticeable once all of the work on the external and internal walls is complete?

We probably won't notice any kind of temperature difference, since we already had the plywood up, and this siding is around the basement and crawlspace rather than the actual house. But maybe? I'm not expecting anything.

And a week on, the one thing we do notice is that it is quieter in the basement. Which is not much of a thing but it is something.
