Things have been at a bit of a standstill for our crew. The electrician we hired told us that his van had been hit and he'd be out of commission for "at least a week." After a week and a half, he came by yesterday with a few guys to look over the project once more before starting. He is going to have a whole crew of guys get the job done in 3 days starting Friday.
So Steve dug the trench for the electrical from the garage last night.
Current codes require this and it seems pretty sensible to us. Plus there's the bonus of having one less wire hanging over our yard.
We picked up the rebuilt window frames for the stained glass windows.
We had these rebuilt because they were rotted and now we are going to have the glass restored and put into the new frames.
Here is a shot of the window. There is a pair of them in each floor.
Steve is picking up the rest of the wood from our stripper on Friday. He has not finished the doors yet but will have them next week.
I'm trying not to freak out about the amount of wood we have to sand. It's not so much exhausting using an orbital sander, but it gets kind of monotonous after a few hours. And we have more than a few hours of sanding to do.
Steve is planning to work on the roof (parapet) in the morning Saturday before it gets hot and then spend the rest of the day sanding.
I promised to go to a friend's baby shower so I can only sand for a few hours Saturday and will do half a day on Sunday.
The fun just never stops I know!
