Filling in the Gaps & Another Weather Delay

14 Jan

We actually got a call this morning from the guys letting us know they wouldn’t be coming today since it was raining. Again, would have been nice to know before we got up early since it was a great sleeping-in kind of day.

But this weather delay gave us time to take matters into our own hands when it came to properly sealing the windows (which it seemed like they weren’t going to do.) Jer continued filling in the big gaps with Great Stuff, which is an expanding spray foam.

For the small gaps where the expanding foam wouldn’t work he’s using Sidewinder latex caulk.

An actual Air Gap. We can see right through to the outside!

We’re also using the weather delay to install some outlets in the master bedroom before they close up the wall, and electrical boxes for bedside sconces.

Hopefully tomorrow will bring better weather and they can install the last window, and get started on the moldings.
