We covered the wall dividing the two sections of the house - sleeping side and awake side. The sleeping side is behind the wall.
Only one little piece in the center to measure and cut and the generator won't start! Not to worry. Homes were built without much technology for years and years, so we went back to some earlier "technology".
My little husband's muscles and a tiny sharp hand saw!
Now, behind this lovely wall is what I have found to be my only unfavorite part of home building so far. And Debbie, I don't know why they make it all pretty and pink and girly, because it really is not nice at all! I even tried humming the Pink Panther song while I was cutting and wrestling this nasty stuff...did NOT work! It is just plain ICK.
Almost looks soft and yummy...unless you already know it up close and personal!
So, anyway, I survived the insulation, and the wall was ready for the brick layers in the morning.
I made a little practice wall just to see what it was going to look like...and I liked.
And here it is finished by the pros. YES! Our first finished wall. Happy.
They are red bricks with this white "stuff" on them so that they look aged to me.
I think I will be a brick layer when I grow up...$1.00 per brick! Uh huh. We have 5600 bricks stacked out there. We will be learning how to do this ourselves for the outside of the house.
These guys were good...in and done and out in 8 hours...but for the cost, I think I can take a few days to do the rest with my friends who work for $5.00 Little Ceaser's pizza! Live and learn.
And this is why I carry an epi pen when I travel out of the country. Something I didn't even see stung me while I was mowing yesterday morning...this is more than 24 hours later...itchy and BIG.
