So, the drywall guys show up Monday morning, owner and two hangers.  Because we're only doing the stairwell and elevator shaft, they ordered drywall locally.  I brush off the 4" of fresh snow off the Skytrak's seat, climb in and unload the delivery truck one bundle at a time, lifting them to each of three floors for them to unload what is required.  All the while, it continued to snow.  By the time it finished snowing Tuesday night we had 16" of wet snow on the ground.  This is April!  What the heck!


But someone was smiling upon us.  As I hadn't gotten an electrical inspection yet, I really should not have had the stairwell done.  I gave that inspector a call and explained my situation.  He happened to be in a neighboring town and agreed to stop by.  OMG I couldn't believe it!  He turns out to be a pretty reasonable fellow.  Definitely not like those back in Nashville on the Mutton Busting project.  Was happy to answer my questions.  Approved the stairwell wiring which was a godsend.  

The hangers got everything hung by the end of today.  What a difference! And a foretelling of things to come when the whole house will get done.  It is amazing however, that when you are the GC on the job and subs are in, you don't seem to get anything on your own agenda done.  And this was no exception.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get back to those things.

Stucco guy came by today Obviously can't start with the snow, but said they should start on Monday.  Will love to see that transformation take place.

elevator shaft. Both this and the stairwell look enormously tall with the temporary floors removed
Lifting up the drywall. The Skytrak has been a wonderful aquisition and we'll continue to use it until done. After that, we'll sell it

The snow may be a pain this late in the season, but it really is beautiful
Looks like Christmas
