Not quite yet poopable July 21, 2007Posted by jeff in Uncategorized.
Pardon the potty mouth, but I was hoping to, er, check out the facilities out the house today. No such luck!
Our plumbers were on site as promised, however. They kept running into obstacles but were able to get in a full day, at least. The electrician never showed up on Friday to finish the well pump/geothermal so they couldn’t fill & test that system. The granite was drilled & assembled a bit too tight so the faucets didn’t have room for the drain levers to fit. The dishwasher opening was 1/4 inch too small, so that couldn’t be finished. The lav pedestal was an inch too low so the trap didn’t fit there. All kinds of fun!
We’re hoping to have those issues resolved on Monday and really trying to have both electrical and plumbing done by Wed or Thurs. The site work is due to finish on Monday and the front and back stairs are due to be completed then as well. Fireplace flue and inspection? Final finish coats on floors, railings and balusters, final paint touchup and door hanging when? Inspections? Mon, Tue and Wed are going to be big days!
We’re moving in either Sun. or Tues. And if we don’t have the occupancy permit by then, I’ll be in the tent next to the house.
It just better not be raining!
