I cannot say enough about the entire crew working on our house. They are out there working no matter how cold, snowy, rainy or just plain crappy it is. Kudos to them all! We got most of our windows in January and they were immediately installed. There was a mishap with the aluminum cladding at the factory so we are still without the big door at the living room, the door at the pool house and one French casement. They were supposed to be in port last week so hopefully we will see them soon.
All the copper has been bent into panels. Mike West has been diligent in getting all the flashings and drip edges installed in preparation for the roofing to be installed. That should start as soon as our next nor’easter rolls by in the middle of the week.
All the shingling work above the areas to receive stone cladding has been completed.
Other notable events since my last post include the successful conclusion of our first blower door test, the delivery of our two wood burning and one gas fireplace, the installation of the main house HVAC system, most of the rough wiring and all the rough drain work. Iminent activities to begin include the stone cladding on the chimneys, excavation for the garage, the delivery of our 36 SunPower solar panels, as mentioned before the cladding of the roof, water supply rough in, and the installation of the interior door jambs. Due to a quirky detail I designed, the jambs have to be installed before the blue board goes up. That’s all for now, have to get ready for Monday morning’s job meeting.
