Drywall Complete

Drywall is Done, but We had an Issue...

Ryan Homes has completed the drywall on our Milan.  It took about a week for them to get it all hung, mudded, and taped.  I think they did a pretty good job!  Once again, I was impressed with the good craftsmanship put into this job.

While drywall was being done, we had a small problem with a water leak from the basement.  The leak originated from our furnace and happened because the furnace drain pipe did not extend far enough to reach the nearby floor drain, so all the furnace condensation leaked onto the floor for a couple days and created a sizable puddle.  This did cause me some concern as they had already drywalled down there and it looked like some of it was getting wet.  Other concerning thing is this apparently was an issue for at least a couple days without any of the workers reporting and/or fixing it.  HOWEVER... my PM got the mess cleaned up quickly and promptly aired everything out and has been running an industrial dehumidifier down there since.  He handled the issue to my satisfaction and I'm happy to say the basement is now dry as a bone and seems okay, but we'll make sure our home inspector checks the area just to be safe.

Next up will be wet-zone flooring, cabinetry, and painting.

In the meantime, they have also begun work on the exterior of the house and are moving pretty quick! More on this in my next post.  For now.... DRYWALL PHOTOS!!!
