Cleaning Up the Driveway

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

Since June, we’ve been moving dirt around our site constantly.  Although PG&E did the natural gas lay-in on August 24 and we passed the mandrel inspection on September 8, Nathan Lee (our project manager with PG&E) advised us that they cannot install the new concrete vault at the front of our property until October 26.  We’ve lost confidence in PG&E’s ability to deliver services.

Since the dirt we have stockpiled for PG&E will not be required for more than four weeks, we decided to move the dirt to the side of our property so the driveway is clear.  This will provide much-needed real estate for delivering materials and parking vehicles.

Bryan worked for several hours moving dirt.  Tomorrow, he will clear the garage, which will then allow Murray Windows & Doors to deliver the 25 clerestory windows on Tuesday, September 28.

Since PG&E will not be on site until October 26, Bryan will move the stockpiled dirt (for backfilling) out of the driveway.

The front of the house is looking a bit better after Bryan moved some of the stockpiled dirt.
