Evacuated 2011 - Day 111 - Oct 11, 2011

Today, with the help of Tom Hinzpeter, did something in my house that had never been done before. We installed insulation in the walls. there was no insulation in the house at all. We have about 1/2 of the main floor done. Another 4 hours and I can finish it. Using Roxul insulation... Google it.... very interesting stuff. It is popular in Europe and Canada, just getting known in the United States... Spun stone fibers, made from molten lava and basalt rock.
A carpenter arrived today from Washington State, Quinn is his name and he will be joining the rest of the crew. He will building the perimeter walls in the basement tomorrow, so we can get that insulated also. Once the walls are up (by this weekend) the electricians will return next week to finish the main floor and wire the basement.
The plumber is to be in Bismarck on the 18th to get his ND license. He should be starting on our house on the 19th. We have removed all plumbing lines so he will have a blank slate to start with.
We met with Todd (contractor) and Darla (cabinet lady) last night. Had to make a few minor adjustments in the cabinets... they will be ordered tomorrow.
Heating and A/C are still scheduled for the 27th.
