The Exterior Winds Down While the Interior Dries Out

THE CONCORD GREEN HOME is finally fully clad in its white Hardiplank fiber cement clapboard. With the exception of railings, the exterior trim is virtually finished as well. Even the wide, graceful porch stairs (to right of construction stairs) seem to beckon for a friendly visit as you stroll by.

The bright pink rigid insulation that cloaked the house for weeks is now hidden, but already performing well. The house is warm inside, even though the interior insulation has yet to be installed. The radiant heat will fire up this week to dry out any residual moisture from the October rains (and snows!) before interior insulation is applied. This will ensure that there is no potential for mold to develop within the walls.

The new kid on the block is finally starting to fit in.
