Addition update - week 12

Week 12
This was a bit of a 'slow' week on the addition, so there aren't many photos. Hopefully progress will be faster and more visible next week.

Mon: The drywall finisher put 'mud' and tape on the drywall joints, a process he would repeat several more times throughout the week. The acrylic block window was delivered.
The siding was added to the sides of the dormer.
Tues: Painting of the topcoat (same color) on the siding was started. The siding was pre-painted, but a topcoat is added for durability and to cover the installation nails. The drywall finishing process continued.
Wed: More siding painting, and more drywall finishing. The acrylic block window was installed in shower. It is covered in bubble wrap and red tape to protect it.
Thurs: More siding painting, and more drywall finishing.
Fri: The application of the tan siding is complete, and the scallop siding was replaced (lower right of the diamond window). The scallop siding had been removed to accommodate the 2nd floor of the addition.

It's coming along very nicely. Next thing is paint, flooring and done!

The glass block is installed!!! That is, to me, the most exciting part of the whole addition. I'm a fool for some glass block. (ok, acrylic, but still...)

We have a glass block wall panel in our shower--it's a really great addition, although ours is a standard rectangle, not step-topped like yours.
