“A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams."

Week two of walls going up, and we've still got a ways to go! A picture's worth a thousand words, so scroll down and throw up a comment if you have any questions.  :)

The insulation. While the reflective barrier beneath will work to keep the sun's heat out, this layer will work to regulate the temp inside and also provide noise suppression. It was too thick to fit into the 2" wall depth, so we halved it. This works out well, because it will only take half as much to cover it all and we can return the rest! :)
Like we did with the lower rear panels, we flipped this wall over to the backside. This saves us the time of having to strip the old paint, wallpaper and vinyl that's on the other side. Patches will be made and holes filled in as needed.
Clecos (klee-kohs). I'd never heard of these before a few weeks ago but they're a MUST for metal work like this!

One of the many many many rivets...
Electric shears, another must around here.
Shout out to Paw-Paw!  :D

Bye bye cracky vinyl trim. Go Dom!
Grandma's meatloaf. AMAZING. You haven't had meatloaf 'til you've tried hers.
See you next week!


  1. Y'all are crazy! I like it. Good job on the hard work! Can't wait to see it all done. xoxox, LH
