It’s Monday morning and looking back on a slow week. More rock removal from the building footprint, which is now basically complete. Calling the surveyor to indicate wall lines and elevations: partially to check work to date, but principally to set the “control” for the remaining part of the building process.
It seems like we should be done already with the degree of problems. The old building’s elevations and placement had to be compensated for with adjustments in alignment, new footing elevations, plumbing changes and raising the building; ah, remodeling! And, we are now asking Boulder County if the sewers can be moved due to the bedrock in their way. Hope for the best!
This week, plumbing starts with a vengeance. Remember the earlier note of 22 plumbing fixtures to provide connection.
Sidebar: rock is tough on everyone. I truly pity the folks in the days that the rock was removed by hand. Nowadays, even the big equipment takes a beating. The large excavator was down several days awaiting a replacement part. Ouch!
Last week, we did also approve the supplier drawings for Windows and the kitchen door wall. Their latter had to be changed to meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities) requirements. A few other minor adjustments. The results: $287 over the original budget set two years ago of $27,000. Good job Westover!
