Snow in July!

Heavy rains and unbearable heat have kept production at a slow pace the past week or so, but today it snowed!! Well, not really -- but with the weather only in the eighties, and delicate flurries of 6" thick foam insulation sheets that Piper found on Craigslist (for 5 bucks a piece!!) it certainly felt like a vacation.

We cut the foam to fit in between the studs on the East and South walls, perfectly nestling into the 2x6 rough cut stud walls. We started to hang the mesh on the exterior which will help the base layer of stucco adhere to the facade. Man, production on these two walls went a lot quicker than stacking straw bales! Look forward to our next house construction blog: House Made of Foam.
