The sheetrock is in place and the alcove is taking shape. We are making some extra efforts to contain the dust from the sheet rock work. We covered the hot air vents to the room and will heat the room with portable oil filled heaters to reduce air movement while the work is being done. We also placed a furnace filter over the cold air return to keep the dust from circulating through the house. Soon we will be ready for tile an finishes.
Bathroom Remodel: Framing for the sink alcove is in place. We put in a 2×8 across the front edge of the sinks they will be marble slab and we want it to be sturdy. The alcove will allow a for recessed lights in the ceiling over the sink. This new part of the room would be dark without additional lighting. The new electric and plumbing is roughed in.The heating duct location was changed from next to the toilet to a toe kick register by the sinks. We got the floor patched and fortified for the tile work. The interior wall between the bathroom and bedroom is insulated in recycled cotton insulation for noise. The Cotton insulation has no formaldehyde, it is not itchy and works great at reducing noise transmission. It has more mass than fiber glass or cellulose insulation. We like to work with it when possible.
