DAY 3.0 – Delivery and PVC
PREVIOUSLY – Maine Escape
Yesterday, we unloaded and cut a trench in the basement floor for the sewer line and lift station. We didn’t get our Home Depot delivery in so Liz & Sparky got to work on installing the Garage Door on the Barn. We prepped and set up a punch list of Maine Escape jobs and tasks so there wouldn’t be any downtime.
DELIVERY – Maine Escape
The Home Depot Delivery Service arrived first thing and we got the bulk of our renovation materials in. Timing is important when organizing the different jobs and having the materials onsite when contractors arrive is key to minimizing downtime and staying on schedule. It’s definitely best, to order materials with a degree of padding.
Flatbed deliveries are palletized and wrapped which is important when dealing with outdoor storage and inclement weather.
PVC – Maine Escape
1st thing we have to do is get the Sewer Line installed so the trench we dug yesterday can get backfilled and capped in concrete. This needs to happen before the framing starts going up, so we’re under the gun to get the PVC pipe installed, plumbed, and inspected.
PUNCH LIST – Maine Escape
Here’s what’s going on:
- Check-in / Inventory Delivery
- Plumbing Sewer Line
- Plumbing Gas Line to Porch
- Electrical Outside AC disconnect
- Installing Microwave / Range Vent
We’re off to a great start. Gotta get the Sewer Line trench backfilled and capped tomorrow so framing can start. Plus more deliveries are on their way and a seemingly endless punch list gets a little smaller.
