Bedroom Update: In Pictures

My last couple posts have lacked pictures, but I finally took the camera around and captured a few images of the progress up in the bedroom.

This first photo shows the partially-stripped door into the bedroom and the newly relocated doorframe for the closet.  The radiator at the bottom of the image is sitting partially stripped in a kiddie pool waiting for me to finish it up.

Door and Closet Opening

In preparation for the spray foam insulation, the roof vents and peak openings have been boarded shut.  The insulation will create a “hot roof” on this side of the house.

Blocked Peak for InsulationWith the bedroom closet relocated to the other side of the room near the entry door (see the first photo above) the master bedroom closet has been expanded to absorb all the former closet’s space.  The new, larger master closet will measure about 14′ x 6′, though the ceiling height will be around 6.5′ at the peak.

Master Closet Framing

The upcoming wiring work won’t change the look of these spaces much, but it won’t be long before insulation makes the room look and feel dramatically different.  I’ll also be working on restoring the radiator, windows and doors in the weeks ahead.

What is a hot roof?

Hi Sandy- A hot roof is simply an insulation design that has no air space between the roof deck (what the shingles are nailed to) and the insulation. I’ll talk more about this in my posts after the insulators have done their work.

By the looks of it, you still have lots of work to do. But let me say this for a job well done: Congratulations Josh for reaching this far. We’re all excited to see the results.

Yes, Jeff, I’d say my progress is mostly emotional at this point, but the pace around here has quickened so real task progress won’t be far behind.

Sheet rock will make all of the difference. My least favorite part is mudding and sanding. The space looks really cool! Your getting there!!!
