Knock down and gutters too!
Today they applied the "knock down" coat to the drywall. We had the choice of "orange peel" (which I suppose would be a good Florida choice) and "knock down", which has a more rustic look. We thought the latter would look best with a log home. Here you can see the coat being sprayed on and then knocked down with a big nylon icing spreader--at least that's what is looks like. It will be dry tomorrow and ready to be painted.
The gutters went up too. They pulled them out of the fabricator in the truck (one 52 feet long) like Mary Poppins pulling furniture and things out of her bag. The gutters are white and the drain spouts copper colored so they disappear when they are on the house, as you can see in the last photo.
