It's been a strange year weather-wise. Heavy, late snows, and the moisture continues in a manner that is typical of mid summer, rather than mid Spring. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms after bright sunny mornings. And the trend continues into the next couple weeks. So far though, the project has been spared from anything significant. While I can look around and see massive downpours happening all around, we've been lucky. And with the stucco and stone going on, that's important! I don't need to see the cement wash down over the stones and ruin the stone job!
The stone guys ( I guess shouldn't call them stoners ;-). ) finished their first contract on Tuesday. I've got the pillars to do next and they may start those today. Stucco guys will wrap up the brown coat today. Should be a fairly short day for them. Framer nearly finished the stairs, but we are waiting on another couple 8 x 8's to come in this afternoon for him to finish. He pulled his tool trailer out, so it may be next week when he comes back. But, we now have access again all the way to the 4th floor!
The elevator is in and working. Those guys were quick in getting it set up. And there would have been no way I could have done it. Some very specialized stuff going on there. It operates so smoothly, you can't even tell it's moving when youy are in the cab.
I'm trying to keep working on the plumbing and as there will be less crews working that always seem to need my help, I may be able to make some progress on that front.
