Posted by Steven in Colorado Springs, CO on 9/1/2010

Colleen went up today to continue monitoring the stucco guys and help out the plumbers as needed, and that all went pretty much as expected. The stucco guys worked around the exterior applying mud to various places they haven't done yet while the plumbers continued running gas line and finishing up bits and pieces of things they hadn't had a chance to finish.

About halfway through the day, a truck arrived with some of the bathroom fixtures. Exactly why these things showed up quite now is a bit of a mystery, since the plumbers hadn't asked for it and Builder Dale hadn't said anything to Colleen, but nevertheless around noon a BMC truck arrived with the two shower/tub inserts for the guest bathrooms and various plumbing fixtures for the same.

After some quick consultation to make sure that they meant to come to Tanglewood, Colleen stashed the fixtures into the shed temporarily while the plumbers carried the inserts upstairs to the guest bathrooms. They slipped into place perfectly (there were a lot of measurements before we ordered the things) and look like they're going to work out just fine. They're not fancy--they are after all for guest bedrooms and/or might be used by somebody's kids--but they're exactly what we'd ordered.

Beyond general cleanup and monitoring the well use by the stucco guys, things went pretty cleanly today. No big breakthroughs or milestones, just a general movement towards completion! Some days are like that--steady progress is awesome.

The gas lines are carefully sleeved when they run through the ICF walls.
The plumbers start carting in bathroom fixtures.

Careful....
Upstairs and working their way around the top of the stairs.
Walking the insert down the hall towards the second guest bathroom.
Fitting the insert into place.
Ta-da!
The tub insert for the other guest bathroom. This one will fit into that wraparound railing area you can see in the background; obviously our plumber friend isn't quite ready for it yet.
