Found out today that the city didn't install the water meter as they don't do that. They are telling us that you have to get a licensed plumber to pull a meter permit and then the city will give a meter for free to install. When I told them I had pulled the plumbing permit as an owner, they reiterated that it had to be a licensed plumber. But they also couldn't believe I could pull my own electrical either. I've called for several quotes, but will head down to inspections when I get back into town in a week or so to see the inspector that issued me my plumbing permit if this is really true or I'm just getting the run around. After all, how many OB's install their own meters?

Sunday was spent messing around with the floor sheathing in the kitchen. There is one floor joist that sags a half inch, and another that rises nearly that much. I spent quite some time trying to mitigate the effects of both, by trimming the sheathing over the high one, and shimming under the low, but I did get the kitchen floor finished before running out of plywood and screws.

Later in the day, went upstairs and began removing the old collar ties, which now allows the full effect of the 10' ceiling to begin to show.

Sheathing done in kitchen. Got the music room/1st floor bedroom done on Sat. Need about 25 more sheets to finish the entire first floor
Original hall floor. Pretty bad shape. Probably could be restored, but at some significant expense. Plus there were other whole rooms that had been removed and replaced with plywood.
New collar ties at 10' height.
