Still needed: carpet installers

DAILY  LOG September 22, 2011

Who Was On-Site?
Fred , Larry, Dorothy, Marjie, Tom, Bill, Alex, Michael O’Grady (Project Manager)

What Happened?
We packed all of the Drywall into the houses. Marjie and Dorothy began trimming the Dimple-wrap (that weird looking stuff that goes around the foundation) and fastening the top to the strapping.
The Plumbing Inspection passed!
Garfield McMurray is building the interior stairs.

What Next?
Muskoka Air Systems will be installing the HVAC Systems.
Greenside Electric will be doing the electrical rough-in on September 23.
Gravenhurst Plumbing will be doing the plumbing.
Muskoka Windows and Doors and Anderson Windows will be installing the windows and doors on
September 24.
Great Northern Insulation will be donating the Spray Foam Insulation for the walls, along with the labour to install it. They will also be donating the labour to install the Roxall Insulation in the fire-separation wall, and the Blown-in Insulation in the attic (that insulation being supplied through Gift In Kind).
Many thanks to John Smith of Carpet One in Bracebridge for agreeing to donate the carpet

My Thoughts
That was hard work getting all the Drywall into the houses. (I know I am feeling it.) Many thanks to Alex
