So the water damage ended up being pretty well contained with only a few more planks to have to be removed. We’ll save that for the future as that level will be finished after we move in under a CO.
Sandra was able to install nearly all of the drawer and door pulls. We’re missing a few to finish the job but getting over a hundred of the suckers drilled and installed was a labor of love for her.
The granite guys came out to template the counters and finish the shower curbs and niches. Well, they got the templating done, but STILL didn’t finish the rest. I swear I am over this. I did get them to get the master’s curb done so I could set baseboard, which then allowed me to set the tub. One tub left to do.
Dishwasher drawers came, as well as the main level fridge. Got those up to the third level. A stove for the second level arrived damaged and we refused delivery. AJ Madison, whom we had ordered it from was fantastic! Showed them a picture of the damage and they sent out a new one the following day.
Today I was able to get the 700 lb stove for our kitchen off of the dolly I had made for it. Wasn’t sure how I was going to do it, but again using lever techniques (and a low profile car jack) I was able to slowly, stepwise lower one end and then the other until it was fully down and I coild slide it onto lower boards and repeat the process. Now in the process of relocating the gas line and electric, as this stove doen’t have an open area across the entire lower back. And a year or so ago when those utilities were being installed, a stove had not been chosen so- - A lesson to ya’ll, plan your appliances early, early on. I should have everything relocated tomorrow, the stove set and leveled, and will try it out. Earlier this week, I did the LP- high altitude conversion. Hope it all goes smoothly!
Not sure if I said before, but we have half the doors ordered and they should arrive the week of April 15th. And next week, I hope to begin scoping out the stair railing. That is a biggie to getting the CO.
|The stove last December when it was sitting on the homemade dolly. It is sitting about almost a foot off of the floor.||
|Stove off the dolly and onto the floor!|

|Our plumber is a friend and he kept bugging me about what our appliances would be.... and I kept thinking why do I need to think about this now, my house is just sticks! Well, we picked them and he marked out the gas line. Hopefully it is in the right spot!|

|I wish I had been that smart! That what happens when you don’t do something for a living. Another thought as I have just finished cutting out Sheetrock from around a can light, check all of those before you run the Sheetrock. I had a neutral wire in the chain that didn’t seat into the wire connector. it resulted in lights down-chain not operating. Would have been better to find out early to correct. Now a patch and paint job. :-(|
