Soy Latté, Extra Foam

Renovation, Bedford style. Today, spray foam insulation.

The photos are pretty bad but considering I was technically banned from the renovation side of the house, getting any photos I say is a coup!

I’m glad my neighbors have a good sense of humor because these guys arrived at 8am!! The truck is darn loud as it powers the insulation through the hoses.

The odor is strong too but I was told I could stay In the house. If this is my last post, you’ll know why! Cough cough.

  1. So you did go with the foamy stuff after all. Beats horsehair and old newspaper any day. I like that round window. Nice touch.

    1. We went with a combo deal – 100% foamy stuff under the house (where there had been a combination of nothing and/or rotten stinky pink batting, and bat and foam in the walls. I’ll post more pix tonight. Still horsehair in north end of RI house.

  2. That’s quite a project there, especially ontop of the holidays. Are you a renova-masochist?

    Horsehair, great insulator, TERRIBLE allergen; and that’s all I have to say about that [in my best Forrest Gump drawl]

    1. The project was scheduled to start this summer, until, a week before demo began, I canned the sorry ass of the first contractor. Long story. I had to find another builder who I liked and who would take on the project quickly. They say all things happen for a reason because I love this builder and he’s right on target timewise.

      Christmas with everyone home is a bit like The Waltons, with all of us sleeping upstairs, some in air beds, some not even that lucky, sh-sh-sharing two bathrooms. The downstairs has only one room not under renovation – the kitchen/breakfast room – so our tree is there this year in all its small glory.

      Merry Christmas to all your family LA.
