Day 3 was a busy day with lots of hands involved. Thank God for our kids who are willing to help out on this large project!
Four of the kids helped Jason measure and cut the Styrofoam insulation as well as put it in place. The insulation had to fit precisely between each metal bar, along the walls and ceiling, so precise measuring was important. The cutting and installing was very easy and pretty fast since he had help.
Insulation boards had to be held in place until the tape was attached. The insulation wasn’t heavy at all but the amount of time that they had to hold their arms above their heads while holding the insulation in place made their muscles burn. Seriously, they had to hold that insulation in place MUCH longer than they ever should have and it became comical. The tape used to hold the insulation in place was a booger to work with! Everyone ended up tickled trying to get the backing off of each piece of tape…and there were a lot of pieces of tape!
Once the ceiling insulation was FINALLY in place a thin sheeting of wood went up over it. This sheeting was extremely flexible so it took many hands to hold it in place while someone else used the electric drill to place screws in it.
Once the sheeting was finally in place on the ceiling Jason put a couple of layers of white paint over it. We completed the first 3 of many steps to a fabulous ceiling! We have great plans but the final details won’t come until the final stages of the build.
