The VALS Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is moving along with completion in sight.  On the exterior, the windows and front door have been installed.  Exterior siding and trim complete.  The front porch is in place awaiting trim and soffit finish installation.  On the interior, electrical and plumbing rough ins are complete and the walls / ceiling / roof have been insulated.  The roof insulation is a flash and batt system where the first three inches are spray foam with the remaining cavity filled with batt insulation.  Since construction began, the client decided to install a wood burning stove.  The concrete base has been poured and the stove / chimney installed.

Next up will be tackling interior finishes, plumbing and electrical fixture installation, spiral stair installation, and painting.  Shooting for end of May completion!
