Daily Log January 19, 2012

Who was on site
Larry, Doug, Roy, Ken, Alex and Vince.
 From G.P.E.& H. we had Steve and Keith, Muskoka Air. We had Tyler From Greensides Electric. we had Steve and Skippy.

What Happened
We are nearing completion with many things; the closet doors are being hung, the toilets and sinks were installed today as well as our water heat recovery units. Larry cut the counter tops with confidence for the sinks. Much door painting continues, clean up was done as we had a considerable amount of cardboard building up. The light fixtures went in unit 519. The water is now on in both units with both bathrooms and kit sinks working.

What next
More paint (details, details), closet shelves, furnace hook up to gas.

Still Needed
The carpet runner for the stairs will be done on our way out the door at the end. Occupancy permits.

Volunteers
Many people have come together to keep this project moving forward, many thanks to you all.

Further down the road
We should be complete in the coming weeks. We will still need to do our final site grading and topsoil and seed in the spring.

Materials/Tools
All tools required are on site. We have our new saw.

Food and Drink
As per schedule.
Many thanx to our food teams, especially to Mary Grey of Gravenhurst, who continues to go beyond all expectations.

Inspections
We will be requesting our occupancy permits in the next two weeks or so. Final permit will not be until spring, as the gas trenches were just done before Christmas, which meant we could not finish our final driveway grading.

My thoughts
A huge thank you to all of you for your continued dedication to this worthy project. A wonderful camaraderie has developed with many of our regular volunteers. I think some lasting friendships have developed. As a first timer with a Habitat Build this is truly great to witness and be a part of. My sincerest thanks to you all.
