Daily Log, Patty Parsons Build – It's Winter!
Date: December 21, 2010,
Rob Abbott reporting
On Site: Acting Site Supervisor: Rob Abbott Volunteers: No Slug Doug Patterson, Free Willie Fletcher, Captain Cody Fletcher Contractors: All About Kitchens, Ian Wallace Visitors: Patrick and Mark stopped by to deliver materials from the ReStore, and Harry Westerby stopped by to check on the roof status.
Daily Log: Jeepers; was the moon ever large and bright over the tree-tops when I drove in today!
Doug and Cody were wicked on the picket line finishing up the last railing. Meanwhile, Willie finished framing the bathroom counter frame and cut the toe-kicks for 1014. Ian Wallace responded to my Bala-Signal call for a trim guy and dropped his sugar cookie and to battle pine and solve our problems with crack, finishing up the trim and baseboard details in 1014A. I spent most of the day on the phone, loading up Micro Red with trash for the dump, or picking up materials. Chris and ? From All About Kitchens installed the countertop for 1014 and cut out all the sink openings.
Despite promises, the plumbers were a no-show.
Action/Follow-Up Items: Rob: Plumbers and Adam Electric
Next Days/Week Plan: Wednesday: Change of plan; the roofers are coming! Get ReStore truck if possible and start clearing out. Trim and toe-kick. Plumbers if I can get them.
Thursday: If anyone comes, continue with trim and toe-kicks. Last day to get materials. Christmas Eve: Depends on volunteer availability.
Volunteer Requirements: Eager Beavers on Wednesday.
Materials/Tools: ReStore Truck to haul away material. Appliances in 2011.
Inspections: In 2011 after the roof is on, the plumbing is in, and the HRV's have been completed.
