Now the kitchen takes shape and begins to look
like a kitchen.
Exterior walls will be insulated with fiberglass batt to provide a buffer between the kitchen and inclement weather. With the wall cavities accessible, now is your chance to install high-quality insulation
rather than the less-effective blown-in insulation later.
Before the walls are closed up, the electrical system must be looked at and approved by an inspector from the local permitting agency. Drywall
is hung and the seams between the drywall sheets are filled in with joint compound. After drying, the joint compound is sanded several times until it is smooth. Finally, the walls are primed and painted.
