As we continue to move to becoming weather tight, we also need to get some temporary lighting into place. If we want the work inside the house to be of high quality, we need to provide lighting so the workers can see what they are doing AND so we can see what they are doing.
In addition, we now have complete safety railings in place around the stair well on the East side of the house and around the window well at the front of the house.
We engaged Penhall Company to do our concrete coring and cutting. They will work on an hourly basis to core drill our concrete on the walls and floor as we wish, and to cut our concrete as we require. Bryan coordinated this with Chris Baker and they will arrive at the project site on Monday at 10:00 am.
To become weather tight, we need to have the huge sliding glass door at the back of the Living Room completed. This sliding glass door has three glass sections: 9 feet wide, 8 feet wide and 7 feet wide. Combined, the three sections are 24 feet wide and the doors slide on a track into a pocket behind the feature concrete wall in the Dining Room.
Bryan picked up the track and sill pan from Murray Windows & Doors on Friday afternoon and took them to the job site. The straight edge of the track will identify how straight the concrete is, how to cut the concrete and help ensure the bottom of the concrete is flat. We can chip any irregularities in the concrete so the track will be perfectly flat.
We’re getting there …
