Patty Parson's Build Daily Log
Look up, waaay up!
Date: Oct. 1
On Site: Frank J. Fraser Site Supervisor
Volunteers: Nan ( the Bala Timex ) Got us going in the morning. Peter Hemming, Bruce Patterson , Mary Mitchele , Mike Drury , Willy Fletcher.
Contractors: Harry Westerby of Westerby Home Improvements. Harry came in and flashed us, as in the flashing on the PT ledger board so that we can finish the SM foam around the bottom. Brad Steele of BSC came in to look at putting our eye brow on the front over hang. He said he will start it next week. Let's keep our eyes crossed.
Daily Log: Nan (The Bala Timex) got us start. While Mike cut and fluffed the insulation in 1014A the rest of the group finished the Vapor Barrier in 1014 and Peter got to caulk the black crap (acoustic seal) on the top and bottom plates. Unit 1014 which is now complete all we need now is to have Curtis inspect it so that is can move into the ready for Drywall Category along with 1014A Mean while Mike has finished fluffing and has moved onto stuffing joists with insulation, sealing it with vapor barrier and Tuck tape. Nice work, Mike. Willy put hand rail supports in 1014A bathroom. Great day people!
Action / Follow up Items: finish insulating the joist cavities in the basement. Reframe eye brow over unit 1014A (Brad Steele). Still No Show with furnace people or plumbers to finish the rough ins. Nan put out the word for drywallers on face book
Next Day / Week Plan: Slide Tyvek between basement brick wall and framing going down stairs. Onto dry walling both units. Additional framing for the roof eye brow (to be done by Contractor) that was missed. Flashing for ledger board done so we can now continue with SM foam on bottom. Construct pocket door in 1014.
the more the merrier!
Volunteer Requirements: lots of projects for Volunteers inside and out. The more elves the merrier.
Materials / Tools: Could always need more drills (hammer) drywall drills never enough tools.
Inspections: "Passed" insulation inspection on 1014A with just a couple of minor technicalities. Waiting for him to show for 1014. Prepared By: Frank J. Fraser
