Prior versions of the schedule, for those who wish to mock my planning abilities (you know who you are):
Kept pretty well on schedule over the Feb 17 weekend, but still lots to be done. We now have a Hard Deadline: I have scheduled the drywall installers for March 13. So if it isn't in the walls by then, it isn't going in...
February 25-28: Long weekend to get caught up! Continue cranking on the following list of Things That Must Be Done before we can close up the walls:
March 4-5: Continue on the list above. Priority items include ductwork, stove hood vent (this is going to be a fun one), insulation, possibly hanging the light fixtures. Getting very close! Saturday morning I have to get up early and go look at a "Blue Star" range (http://www.prizer-painter.com), my friend Scott is very hot on these things. Appliances are Fun!
March 11-12: Continue working on the list above. Includes roughing in sink and dishwasher plumbing, hanging new basement door.
Week of March 13: Drywallers come, install all drywall, paint walls.
March 18-19: Drywallers/painters will still be in process, so use this weekend to finish all the loose ends in the basement (extra insulation, plumbing rough in, panel work, etc.)
March 25-26: Install wall and base cabinet bodies. This includes the rough framing for the island.
Week of March 27: Jim Hurley comes to make the template for the countertops. Things start to look like a real kitchen
April 1-2: Lay floor in music room, kitchen, (possibly) tile floor in foyer (this depends on the front door schedule in part). Although it lacks finish carpentry (baseboard), harp room is now Back In Business
Week of April 3: Jim Hurley returns to install countertops, yahoo!!
April 8-9 Finish carpentry: baseboard, door casing, above-cabinet molding in music room and kitchen. Install lighting trim, cover plates in music room. Install in-cabinet lighting, under-cabinet lighting in kitchen. Stain or paint back door.
April 15-16: Hook up plumbing for kitchen and bar sink. Lay tile floor in foyer if we haven't already. Tile backsplashes too. If they are here, consider (gulp) INSTALLING THE APPLIANCES.
Week of April 15: Build and finish the piece of furniture that goes next to the stairs
April 22-23: Install the piece of furniture that goes next to the stairs (need to come up with a better name for this thing), along with the new handrail. Install remaining light fixtures (island pendants, landing fixture, anything else we've left out.
April 29-30:I have An Appliance and I'm Not Afraid to Use It! Umm... I think... we're DONE! Cocktails, anyone?
