DAY 5.0 – Job Perks & Framing
PREVIOUSLY – Maine Escape
Yesterday, at the Maine Escape, the sewer line in the basement floor was backfilled and capped with concrete. Deliveries kept coming in and we realized the difficulties getting big trucks to the site. Hopefully, nothing bigger than a 24 footer comes today.
FRAMING – Maine Escape
Finally, we get to put up some walls. The deliveries and concrete curing have put us back a day so Sparky (the framer) has called for backup and jumped headlong into the tiny basement. It’s not a big space so he got a copy of the plans and told me it was my day to work on the Punch List.
PUNCH LIST – Maine Escape
Today’s punch list:
- Install the slate tile for the New Stove in the Porch
- Install the finished Glass Door
- Manage Deliveries
JOB PERKS – Maine Escape
Playing leap frog with the different contractors means there’s bound to be some downtime. Luckily there’s a beautiful pond to distract and “Lil Duck” took advantage of a kayak with our son Aiden while the Plumbing in the Wetwall was being done. Not a lot of room to work means lots of patience.
WETWALL – Maine Escape
The Insulating and Framing in the back of the basement was completed in the morning so the plumber could run the utilities through the wet wall. It was important to get this done today because electrical is going in tomorrow and we’re supposed to get everything approved so the sheetrock can go up this weekend. Can’t miss beat.
Tomorrow Electrical is scheduled to go in the Wetwall and we get a NEW helper.
