Wow, things got serious this week. David went full on Breaking Bad hazmat mode and did some major work in our house. All of our insulation was installed this week, and we passed our mechanical, framing, and insulation inspections! The insulation inspection turned out to be quite the chore because unbeknownst to us, the foam around our wiring had to be a particular kind, so we failed the first inspection. Interestingly enough, the type of foam that the city requires us to use (aka “the orange one”) is not sold at your average chain hardware stores, but after several trips, David was able to find it at a smaller local supply shop.
