Celebrating Thanksgiving (After Finishing the PEX)

It was great to celebrate yet another Thanksgiving with good friends.  We went to the Staab’s to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.  We’re planning (hoping?) to celebrate Thanksgiving in our house in 2010.  Before enjoying dinner, we had some work to complete.

Finishing the PEX

Bill Brown’s team completed placing the reinforcing steel in the lower level so we went to the site to finish the PEX.  Our good friends, Paul Marcaccio and Laura Watson, were visiting from Toronto so Paul joined Bryan and Nikolas at the job site.

Bryan instructed Nik on how to use the nylon ties and then how to clip the excess off.  Nik was a fast learner and was soon ‘picking rice’.
