|Sunrise at 8:50am.|
|Sun at noon- right over the refinery.|
|90 bags of insulation. Anyone wanna' help install?|
|Green stickers make me happy. Mostly.|
It was a cold morning at a -20C. When I got there, I decided to keep warm by shovelling all the snow off the loft level. My toes almost fell off from the cold. Thank goodness Dan, the framing inspector showed up around 10am. We received a lovely "acceptable" sticker with a few issues. One might be a problem. Apparently our bedroom windows on the main floor don't open to provide a 15" wide clearance because the pivot for the casement is a couple inches offset into the frame. Doh! So, hopefully, we'll find a solution with Duxton. The other issues were known and the framer will be fixing them after the holiday break.
After just as the inspector was wrapping up, our big shipment of roxul mineral wool insulation arrived! Yay! All 90 bags of them! This will only be the first layer of the outer walls of all the floors above ground. After trying to "hand-bomb" a three-bag bundle into the house, I was afraid I would be too exhausted to move after doing it 29 more times. But I was much warmer due to all the exertion. Thank goodness Matt arrived just as I struggled with a couple more bundles! So, now to get the rest of the snow out of the house and out of all the stud spaces and start insulating! Any volunteers?
