Spent better part of the weekend making sure all the electrical was finished in prep for the inspection this week. I needed to place covers over a number of boxes such as where pendant lights will be hung, but haven’t as of yet. A couple of receptacles still needed to be installed in somewhat out of the way locations and I got the chandelier short taken care of. Still not sure what it was, but I took it all apart, put it back up and it works fine.
Made up the last wooden hand and stair rails. Will install when Sandra returns and stains them.
Started looking at the last of the plumbing. Found out I’m short PEX elbows so water heaters will have to wait until I can get to Taos and pick a few up.. I swear I bought some when I was there last, but if I did, they are no where to be found.
The three shower sets in the third and fourth floors, leak slightly. Most of the plumbing and mixing valve is exposed, and the leaks are where the attachment to mixing valve takes place. I took them all apart today, but it looks like the seal is getting sufficiently compressed. But the seals are of pretty hard material. I’ll pick up some garden hose washers, intall them and see if they make a difference.
The shower niches, yes remember them? They need to be tiled, now that the bottom ledges were installed by the granite guys a couple weeks ago.so while I wait on a chance to get to Taos, and after I fix the leaky shower assembly I’ll pull out the tile saw and get those finished.
