The insulation is in place, though I have an extra bag and one corner I couldn't reach, so maybe a job for a cooler day. I'll go over the baseboard with a scrub brush to knock off grit before I paint it, and once the trim is done and the touch-ups complete it will be time for furniture.

The Attic Dek planks are meant for the ceiling joists being 24" on center, but the builders were a bit sloppy and while it worked in one area, the second place where I wanted to install them is more like 25" on center, and the decking wouldn't install securely at that spacing. I had 30" planks up there from the past when I was running cable through the attic, and they were what I used this time. I'll use the rest of the dek planks in other places where I need to pass through more easily.

A bag full of now-empty contractor bags is in the garage to be re-used as needed. They're good for hauling around compost and occasionally filling with trash (though I rarely have that much and usually put it in cans that are emptied at the curb.)

It's nice to finally be able to set the air conditioners at their usual levels. I look forward to being able to fully enjoy the house again soon.
