Late this afternoon, The Guys—actually the Pinch Hitter Crew—came in and put up Sheetrock™ in the staircase, once again isolating the destroyed area from our living space. The other exciting part is that this means the upper and lower zipwalls that made the stairwell into an air lock are now GONE.
If this photo is confusing, The Photographer, not me but one JCB (thanks dear!), was standing in what is once again becoming the master bath, and looking between the studs down the interior staircase. Indeed, you can see the zipwall (now removed!) between the staircase (the house’s central transportation corridor) and the downstairs living area.
The house is still modeling a tarp, but it’s undergone huge progress over the past week. Yea!
