It is the day before Thanksgiving and two significant events are happening.
First, the two steel beams are arriving so the existing east and west walls can be supported during the excavation of the basement. It is critical to keep these walls in place safely, so people on the job site are safe. The beams arrive at 8:30 am!
Second, is to collate the sheets that make up my building plan submission. With almost 50 sheets, some of which are 30 inches by 42 inches, this is a non-trivial exercise. However, the City of Monte Sereno was kind and allowed me to spread out the plans in the Council Chambers so I could collate the submission. I was reminded that they needed a complete set of plans to approve. Consequently, this became a high-priority item for me.
