Today, all the subs finished with the rough-ins and I worked on the shower base in the downstairs bath. I learned the difference between mortar and cement. We'll be working hard the next couple days getting ready for the drywall contractor. Also tomorrow we are having an intermediate blower door test to see if we have any air gaps that need filling.

Blue Jean Insulation
This is my car, completely stuffed with UltraTouch insulation. This insulation is made from 100% cotton, 85% which is post-industrial recycled cotton (blue jeans, maybe??) and contains no VOCs or formaldehyde. I purchased the product at DeVries Building Supply in Sheffied, Ma. Very nice people and they deliver to Connecticut. We're going to use it in the walls and ceilings for sound suppression in the music room. The great thing about the stuff is that while Jer and I are installing it, the kids can be sitting on a pile watching a movie in perfect, safe comfort.
