Day 32 – Sheetrock, Hardie, Front Stairs
Today the Sheetrock, Exterior Hardie panel and lap siding, and the exterior stairs are being installed.
This part of the construction is really a pivotal point and one of the best times to view this site, and any construction site for that matter. The structure starts to take shape as and become a home. You can start to feel the actual size of the rooms and the flow of the home as it would be lived in.
We are going to be leaving one bedroom wall and ceiling in the home unfinished which will allow us to display the Oceansafe Steel SIP system after construction is complete.
The sheetrock has been donated by Seacoast Supply, manufactured by USG and installed by Stewart Interior Contractors; The Hardie products have been donated by James Hardie Building Products and installed by Vinyl Tech; and lastly the lumber for the stairs was donated by and installed by.
To install the Hardie into the steel skin of the SIP, a special order pin was supplied by Aerosmith Fastening Systems. Aerosmith also loaned us the guns to shoot these pins and we want to give a special thanks to Howard Goode for coming out to the site to participate in the Hardie installation as well as the Media Day.
