So the wood for the stairs comes next week, but after a discussion with Sandra, whose idea is to get the stairwell sheetrocked first, we decided to do just that. Also changed is we're ditching the sconces and will go with chandeliers. Now to figure out how to hang them and more importantly, how to place wiring before the drywall.
In the meantime, I've ordered the elevator which will take about 2 months to get. Ran a 240V and a 120V over to the location. Finished the last wall for the shaft, finally and fireblocked the last level. I drilled holes the the concrete walls for 50amp lones for hot tubs and ran the cable. Meanwhile Sandra finished stripping wiring, and has moved on to placing blocking for towel racks and paper holders in the bathrooms. Also will set blocking for shelving and TV brackets.
Another garage door got new springs this week and I got an opener working on it. Now the double door and it should get working next week if the springs work for it. We're still looking at two different sets sent by the manufacturer. We havent ordered ones through the local guy - yet. Fingers crossed.
Got two companies out this week to look at the stucco and drywall. Just contacted another one today and they'll be out next week. Should have some numbers to choose from in a couple weeks. Weather is definitely changing and we want to move on it as soon as possible.
Will get back on plumbing now that I took a break, taking care of lingering electrical and framing.
