About right to me. The 30x50 my son and I will be putting up this spring, I predicted will take 3 months.

Major difference is you have a lot more time to work on it being retired. Tim still has a day job to contend with also, and I think it is about 45minutes to and hour away from his work/ home, if I remember his posts right. So no easy stopping over for couple hours after work each day.

At 70, I expect we both will only put in the same amount of time.

In the living area... double bubble on the tin for a vapor barrier and then fiberglass between the studs. Same in the ceiling.

I swear some of these walls were plumb when I started and now a few are out 1/4" or the studs have bowed too. All this rain isn't helping for sure. A few times I've been out to the shop and opened the door there's been fog inside.
