Water, Floors and More


We survived January’s precipitation and have moved on to sheathing! Thanks to 4,000 sq. ft. of black plastic (applied in darkness) and a submersible water pump, an estimated 500 gallons of rainwater did NOT end up in the crawlspace. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to complete all joists and blocking, and we’re over half way to completed sheathing. Special thanks to Phoenix neighbor, Charlie (joists) and Mammoth neighbor, Mark (sheathing) for their assistance. Next step is sole plates to accommodate the insulated panels (i.e. walls), and wall delivery in mid-February.

Check out our joist progress and beginning sheathing photos under the House Construction Photos – Jan. 2009 and our continued sheathing progress under House Construction Photos- Feb. 2009.
