Well we are at the half-way point of the build and although we had a slight setback we are still on schedule and set to finish on time.
The hiccup in the plans is because they insist on hiring people to inspect our building! Everyone has a slightly different set of criteria — although the goal for everyone is a finished building that is the best it can be. Although our builders have a lot of experience they did not have everything this particular inspector was expecting — and so they have to do some more work before the sheathing inspection can be completed. But Angelito and his crew are working hard to get everything done so the inspection will go ahead next week. Then insulation and drywalling can go ahead.
We had a lovely chat with Novell tonight at our regular debriefing. We received their assurance that this blip on the radar will be overcome and everything will go ahead as planned.
The electrical and plumbing are done. The breaker box is in:
right beside the front door. The wiring is all done upstairs
with the switch inside the planned appliance garage set up so it can’t be used unless the garage door is open. Downstairs is ready, too with plumbing and wiring all set
Lights for the bathroom and the bedroom are either in hand or on order. The hallway lamp is ordered (from Germany), and we are in the process of picking the perfect lights for outside the front and garden doors. The deck lights will be installed very soon.
The rolled steel roof is going on next week, and the roof is being prepared for it
Compare that with the first week of the build, 15 weeks ago
