HVAC completed phase one (of their 2 phases)
Plumbing, we are using my parent’s friend’s company and have had a hard time getting ahold of him. At this point we don’t know when they are coming out and that is pretty frustrating.
Electrical said he would be buying stuff this week and starting work next week.
Siding – we bought some rolls of plastic and started putting it on. We are waiting for another wood sample to get here, should be today.
Roofing – We are doing asphalt shingles and we are installing it ourselves. We ordered it from home depot yesterday and are waiting to hear a delivery date. We also need to decide on a trim color so we can paint the eaves before the shingles go on.
Doors – we went Tuesday to look at doors, we called yesterday to have an old quote updated, but are waiting on them to get back to us.
Insulation – On Tuesday we met with insulation and they will be working on updating our quote.
Detached garage/workshop – we are starting the planning for a detached garage. There are some issues with setbacks, so we had to submit a form asking for approval to put the garage in line with the house (15 ft closer than the allowed garage setback). There is an initial approval, then they will notify all neighbors within 600ft and we will have a hearing. Hopefully this step goes smoothly and quickly. My dad has a lot of stuff so we want to have the garage done before/at the same time as the house.
So it sounds like we will have a busy several weekends of roofing, painting, siding.
