Willie and The Wallbangers

Construction Daily Log, Aug. 6th, 2010
Patty Parsons Build – Willie and The Wallbangers! Photos are from Aug. 7th. Just to keep you on your toes. Sort of the day-behind-the-scene photos. Many volunteer their time and elbow grease. Well done!

On Site
Site Supervisor: Rob Abbott
Volunteers: Willie H, Willie F, Cody, Marnie, Steve, Carol, Bruce, Don G, Mike, Peter,
and Jim. As usual Bill and Nan checked on us throughout the day.

 Grazing in the grass is a gas. Baby, can you dig it? The weather groovy: sunny, with a breeze and cool (I bet the golf course were full).

With all the help we were able to get a lot done:

We got the walls all squared up, one party wall framed, and up, the sheathing on one wall installed, most of the interior walls for 1014A framed (set aside to keep the area clear), extension frames made for the basement windows, and we even got the trailer levelled.

Contractor, Brad Steele stopped by and offered his crew's services (to be arranged) and to park his dump trailer there over the weekend and as required to use for garbage. He also offered to take away to the dump and pay for dump fees. This should eliminate the need for a dumpster.

Action/Follow-Up Items:
• Order SM board for outside
• Schedule crane, truss and roofing framers. At this rate, I think we'll be ready to
put up the trusses Tuesday.

Next Days/Week Plan
Note for Howard: We decided it would be better to leave the second party wall (the one
with the drywall on the back-side) until after the roof is up. This saves trying to keep the
drywall dry and makes it easier to move between the units while putting up the trusses
and roof.

Saturday – Exterior wall sheathing. Return unused bridging to Muskoka Lumber.
Monday – Finish exterior wall sheathing; hopefully, prepare for truss installation on
Tuesday – Trusses. Rumour has it we might be getting electricity on Tuesday.

Volunteer Requirements
It looks like we'll have a large crew on Saturday. Monday, we probably only need 3 – 6. Tuesday, or whenever we do the truss, we only want 3 Max to help the professionals; any more and we risk being
in their way and we can't work under them.
