Mechanical Work

A lot has happened since I last wrote. It’s funny I actually write less the more work we do. I only get around to posting here when I am not working. Last week was spring break which meant no break on the house.

The week started interesting, our HVAC did not start on time. The plumber’s started work, before the HVAC. This of course is not the way it is supposed to work. When the HVAC did finally start we had to cut some pipes to make way for the duct work. The duct work is now proceeding and should be done at the end of the week. At that point the plumber will come back and fix the things we had to break. I hope they are not too unhappy with us.

The house is starting to come together. We got the form stone removed from the front of the house. They washed off the lead paint below with a caustic soda. Finally the repointed the bricks to make it look nice and new. In the back of the house we have a new door and new windows.

We are now looking at drywall crews to hang and finish the drywall. There are a lot of little details that need to be sorted out before we can call them in. We need all the new windows and doors installed. Any electrical lines we want to pull need to be put in. We want to put speakers into the ceiling and possible install a security system before the walls are closed. Basically went the drywall is up, it is move in time.
