08/24/15 – 08/25/15, Furring Strips

Dad had ripped furring strips from scrap lumber before he went back to his “real” job, and I cut and fit them around the inside of EACH joist cavity, nailing them with the finish nailgun, which jammed more times than not.  We plan to add a layer of rigid foam insulation on top of these and then lay the plumbing, adding sprayed-in insulation on top of everything.

Still rocking the sweatband. With humidity up to 100% this week, my face feels like a pipe burst.

Hoping to look just the right amount of pathetic...

I measured twice and cut once... yet, still had to redo several pieces.

So happy to be finished with this tedious task!
