Well,
I thought for sure i’d be done with the vapor barrier and be actually throwing in some floor joists today. Nope. Got all of the rimboard up needed to frame though. Gotta throw in them beams/girders and posts and will be ready to slap them TJI’s in there. Easy peasy stuff from here on out:hump:

I was thinking it would be dark colored, what do I know. We were insulating floor joists with foil backed insulation on the De Sable house, that was blinding also. Coming along bro.

Is that the crawl space?
Yes. Not into slab foundation. But i also had to build on some grade.
In a raised foundation you either leave it dirt and have shit loads of vents or cover it in a 6mil(minimum) vapor barrier and only need about 1/3 the vents. It really is just a better system. Not to mention when my ass needs to crawl back in there like it seems i’m always doing in my houses, It will be nice.

Rando questions since I haven't been following;

You're building a house?
Are you building an indoor garden area too?
