Shake, shake, shake!

Today’s stop let us see shake progress!
That it let us SEE the shakes was really cool in an of itself. The little chip we had still left us wondering how it would look like irl. Now we know.
It’s in the same colour family as the siding, just a little darker. It feels pretty safe and not very crazy. The white trim boards really help make everything feel less bland.
We’re really curious about the stone now!

The east exterior is DONE! 1 / 4, check. The rear is nearly finished, area wise. The outside of the great room and master bedroom is left. The area with crazy many windows, so lots of cuts to hang the siding.

Also new today: soffits! fascia boards! and LOCKS!!!
Meaning the front door was locked, the inner garage door was locked, with a master lock key box for the subs.
The rear sliding door was also locked but the ‘dog door’ wasn’t!
So we went into stealth mode and sneaked into our own house.

First off I have to mention that the light flowing into the house in the late afternoon is really nice!

As for the walls, the drywall has a first layer of tape and mud and the drywall crew has really cleaned up inside! Only a few cut off pieces laying around today by the cutting station in the great room. And the prerequisite layer of drywall dust is now present. Everywhere.

The deck ceiling looks great, so does the very purple drywall in the splash zones in the master bath. The actual shower will have cement board backing.

Finishing off with a photo of the mixing station. The dining room has got a bunch of joint compound boxes, the green is regular and the ‘lite blue’ for the corner bead.

There were more boxes lining the wall to the left out of picture but two pictures of boxes seemed like overkill.
