Receiving Our Yellow Cedar Shakes from Canada

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Our friends at White Cap Construction Supply delivered our yellow cedar shakes today.  Our garage is filled.

Now, we need to get the shakes onto the roof.  Except the zinc fascia goes on the gable ends (rakes) first. Wildcat Metals is putting the zinc fascia on the gable ends for us, and this needs to happen.

Selecting Hardware for Our Front Door

We committed to selecting the hardware for our front door so this was at the top of Bryan’s agenda for today.  He had lots going on at the job site so he juggled several items while identifying the exact part numbers from FSB.

In the afternoon, Bryan called Nathan Merrill, from American Ornamental Iron, and agreed to meet him at his shop tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 8:30 am.  They will go over all the design and corresponding hardware details so Nathan can start fabricating the door.

Installing the Sliding Glass Doors in the Wine Cellar

There are three sliding glass doors that must be installed by a Fleetwood-certified installer.  The three-panel, 24 ft wide door on the ground floor and the doors to the Wine Dining and Wine Cellar.  We engaged Phil Murray to install these sliding glass doors for us.

Phil sent Theron Boulden to the job site first thing this morning.  Then, Phil came by at 10:00 am to ensure the installation would progress as planned.  With everything on track, Phil left before noon to another job.

We need to have the concrete edge on the ground floor cut to a nice crisp edge, so Bryan called Penhall and arranged to have a techician on site at 10:00 am tomorrow morning.
