Craftsman Room Addition phase 8
I hired out the stucco, did the siding, insulation, and sheetrock myself. Keepin’ on keepin’ on, I would probably be done by Christmas, if I didn’t have to replace a Pella door (The new one is on order) because the owner doesn’t like the high threshold.
This is not my design, I am the general contractor.
Hanging board in preparation for stucco. The walls will get two-coat stucco over foam, and the lid will be synthetic stucco over DensGlass Gold exterior sheathing. These two guys are brothers, and they do exacting work. Almost seems a shame to cover it up!
Hardi-plank siding. Destroyed my 10" sawblade on my sliding compound miter saw, but I got it finished before I had to buy a new blade! I know, I know, I should get shears, but I don't use this stuff that often. Next time....
Paint! Hard to believe, but this is the same color as the doors behind it - so it should weather to match. If you open that green door and look at the back edge of the door that never sees sun or dust, you can tell that the color is correct.
R-19 fiberglass batt insulation. I wanted to put up a blanket and blow the insulation into the walls, but no one in town carried it. My supplier said they could get it - with a $500 special order shipping fee attached! Yeah, right.
Drywall is up, we're closing in on it. I hired a helper for a few hours to get the lids up, but other than that, I did the whole thing myself. Almost wore me out...but I can't stop now!
