While my dad was here, we got all the electricity done, except for the final hookups at the outlet boxes and light switches. The plumbing is all ready to hook up once the tiling is done. The drywall is hung, taped, mudded, and sanded. I've done a bit over half of the second (and hopefully final) coat.
We've having some strange moisture issues in some of the ceiling corners. Some of the corners have still not dried after 3-4 days. In fact, in a few places, they're literally dripping water! The ceiling is insulated with a total of R-60 fiberglass, but we suspect that in these corners there are small gaps letting cold air in near the drywall and causing moisture to condense. Eric's going to crawl up in the attic space, pull aside much of the insulation he just laid, and be sure that those corners are all sealed up.
The vent fan in the ceiling is also dripping water intermittently (more often at night, especially when we have a particularly cold night). It hasn't rained for a week and all the snow and ice melted about that long ago, so we suspect it is--once again--a condensation issue. Warm air from the room goes up the flexible duct and cold attic air causes moisture to condense and drip down into the fan. I bought insulated ducting, which should solve the problem.

I might see if some of our friends can help watch the kids so I can work for a good several hours. We'll be laying the marble tile soon, and I'll need some uninterrupted work time for that.
