Sheet-rockin and EZY Jamb

The drywall crew has been working all week. Here are some pictures of the progress. This is the stage of construction where everyone tells you things start looking smaller and I confess, that’s true for the most part. Bedrooms, bathrooms and other smaller spaces tend to feel more closed in when the walls go solid, but the open areas like the living room and kitchen still feel large and open. We’re particularly excited to see the EZY Jamb order arrived and they’re starting to be installed. This small detail that will really set the house apart so stay tuned for more on that. Also, more eagle-eyed readers will notice that the Panda door in the living room has not been installed. Some damage to one of the tracks was discovered so that is being worked out with Panda.

It's nice to be able to see the full height of the dining area covered. It's nice to be able to see the full height of the dining area covered.

Top plate detail.  If you look closely, you can see that it's two pieces so it's expandable to fit the exact width of the wall.

Can't wait to see those clean lines on the door jambs.  So far they have been a great company to work with.

Looks like they got my speaker holes cut.  I'm glad I used HTD's metal brackets.

This is my wiring closet.  The HVAC return makes it really cramped.  I hope I can fit everything in there.
