So this could be a a good week. I’ve got final electrical tomorrow and should pass as I took care of everything he called out, I passed final mechanical last week, and will call in for final plumbing tomorrow. While the inspector was out for the mechanical, I queried him about connections on the water heaters for condensate and pressure relief valve. He ok’d how I was planning on routing them and also offered a suggestion of his own which I’ll take.
All the final bits of the stair railing were fabricated this weekend and even though they are not painted, once onstalled they will suffice as complete for inspection purposes. And so after plumbing is signed off, I’ll call for a temporary Certificate of Occupancy, and if we get it we can think about moving. I said think, as there are still the beams to install in the kitchen. Really want to get those up and off the living room floor as they are simply in the way. Get them up, and we can begin the final move of the tool cart and a few other odds and ends and strip the Ramboard and cardboard that are protecting the hardwood, and finally see what the living room will look like!! But at the very least, we will not be sweating out making the move before our lease runs out!

|Sending good vibes your way this week! Our plan is to apply for CO on Wednesday, finishing up some electrical/plumbing bits today and tomorrow and having the loft railing installed tomorrow..... keeping my fingers crossed. We have to be out of our rental May 31.... so it's getting close. We have started to move our "yard junk" but we will have a busy moving weekend this weekend if we have the CO or not. Anyway... hoping we both get it this week!!!!
As for your previous comment, I agree time goes so fast and work goes so slow... and I just want a day off :)|

|And more good vibes back to you! You’re on such a much tighter schedule. Truly hope all goes well! Those little bits are always the hardest to find, let alone finish. My electrical was today and this morning I found two more undercovered junction boxes that neither I nor the inspector caught last time. Good luck!|
