It's been a very busy day,
and I'm still feeling crummy.
I'm giving this post exactly
wiring is a lot like framing...
seems like it NEVER ends.
But it's done now
and we figure we've got
over a mile of various electrical wire
running through this little bungalow.
This awesome guy is Jef - Electrician Extraordinaire.
He and Dean work together at GE and Jef actually took
half a day off to come help out!
We probably owe him like 50 or so
Apollo Burger cheeseburger combos.
We are so grateful for his help.
Gary, another coworker and longtime friend, also
came and helped out for several hours after work one evening.
I made the mistake of asking him if I could take his picture.
I shoulda just taken it because
he shut me down (in the nicest way possible) saying something about
not wanting to take any
razzing from Peter at work about showing up on our blog.
Tell ya what...
we've got some really wonderful friends
and we're very grateful.
As of tonight,
electrical is DONE!
Gas lines are also
There was some rearranging needed on those.
We had part of the drive way poured...
It turned out GREAT.
Craig Robinson and his crew are about the best flat-work guys around.
We framed out the fireplaces...
The window for our master shower FINALLY came in
and we installed it right away.
we had our first 4-way inspection.
Inspector Mike said it's rare to do an initial 4-way
and have to put so few items on the call-out list.
That made us feel pretty good, but there was
still quite a list of things that needed correcting.
As you can see, all but one have been checked off.
It's been crazy-busy around here.
And things are stressful because we've got three contractors lined up
in the next two week that have to follow in quick succession
and we are SCRAMBLING to get
everything done that needs to be done
before those crews start.
One last thing -
lest you drive by and notice this...
our meter base on the FRONT of our beautiful bungalow...
do not think for a second that we wanted it there.
It has seriously disappointed me that the power company insisted
that this was the only acceptable location.
And, yes, that was more like almost 20 minutes.
Thanks for stoppin' by.
Good night and God Bless.
