Bryan received a call today from Bill Edwards of Insulspan. Bill apologized for interrupting our tool shopping on ‘Black Friday’ (we bought an air compressor and a DeWalt miter saw) as he wanted to advise us that our SIPs will arrive at our job site on Wednesday morning (12/02/09) at 8:00 am.
Shipping Our SIPs
Bill explained that there will be three trucks; two truckloads full of SIPs and the third truck will have the remaining SIPs and all the hardware. He sent the photos below to show us what to expect.
We need to ensure we have a crane ready and waiting, and that we have space to store the SIPs until we can place the SIPs on the structural framing.
Once we have the SIPs, the house should come together quickly.
The Walters Visit Our Site
It was a great Thanksgiving dinner last night and, yes, we discussed our project several times. Worth and Lena Walters were at the dinner with their two sons, Bjorn and Andreas. Everyone, except Bjorn, has visited our project site and, during a lull in their Black Friday shopping, they called and said they would drop by.
Jo-Anne wanted to verify the progress so she joined us, too.
