I got a call from our landlord yesterday morning.  He is looking to sell the house we are renting and wanted to run the prospective buyers through this weekend. Wow! That was a bolt out of the blue! He did confirm however that our lease is through June and he will hold to that. So - that makes us double down on getting an occupancy permit a nd move in by that time.  Now technically, all you need for the permit is to have a working kitchen, a bathroom, railings on the stairs, walls covered, and electrical and plumbing completed.  Final finishes, including flooring, tile, painting etc are not necessary.  But we don’t want to be traipsing over a living area to get to finish areas above.  So our original plans remain intact - finish the house from level 4 and work out way down.  Our  main level for Sandra and I is Level 3, which would mean only two levels would get us moved in & out of construction zone. However, all the way to level 2 still needs to have the plumbing and electrical completed for finals on those necessary for the occupancy permit. That means all the vanities needs to be hooked up, the kitchen sink on that level needs to be hooked up etc. So, a fair amount of work needs to be finished in addition.


Was that confusing enough?

Sandra and I finished the kitchen ceiling.  A new load of aspen was much straighter that what we had left from the original load last fall.  This made running it a lot quicker. Moved cabinets around so we could clear a major portion so we can begin running the living area  floor on Monday, tomorrow.  Over the last couple days, I’ve moved about 5000 lbs of flooring up there.  Thank God for the Skytrak! 

I’ve been getting 4th floor vanities set, with water connected.  Need to order p-traps and finish the drain connections and we’ll be good.  At the same time, will order toilet rings (I’ve switched to using foam rings instead of the traditional wax ones) and we can begin setting the remaining six toilets.

We held the granite guys off last week as winter has returned (arrived) with a vengeance and we figured they wouldn’t make it up to the site without 4WD. So hopefully they can get up here this week.

Got both fireplaces started yesterday.  They seem to work just fine. Inspector didn’t show last week, so I’ll call him so he can inspect the vent line of the lower fireplace and I can close it up.
