Construction Schedule (as of December 5)

Back to the top

The schedule, week by week:

December 10-11 With all tubing installed, we can start insulating under it. Staple up radiant barrier insulation (it's foil, no holding fiberglass over your head!) under second floor and under first floor. Do plumbing for new Polaris heater. Install new ductwork in kitchen and music room.

December 17-18 I was Framed, your honor! Frame in ceilings with crazy metal framing, do basement stair extension. Finish off ductwork and new hood vent. Start hanging light fixtures if time.

December 23-24 Check out new back door, hopefully installed week prior! Finish off kitchen subfloor now that ductwork and door is out of the way. Hang light fixtures, speakers in both rooms. Rough in plumbing for dishwasher, sink, bar.

December 25 - January 9 Happy Holidays!!

January 14-15 Crazy Harry Play With Electricity (extra credit if you identify where that line comes from). Wire up new light fixtures, run appliance feeds, outlets. Run raceway, boxes for new cable and network lines. Anything else to be done before we close up the walls, DO IT NOW b/c the drywall guys come next week!!!

January 21-22 Paint By Numbers! Don't miss this exciting weekend, this is when everything suddenly starts to take shape. Hopefully by now the Drywall Guys have already come and gone and done their magic...

January 28-29 Floor It! Time to lay the bamboo floor in the harp room and put the baseboard back. With any luck we'll be able to start working on hanging the new cabinets this weekend too. Install bookshelves in the harp room -- harp ensemble is back in business.

February 4-5 The Worst Is Behind Us! Finish hanging cabinets. Get everything ready for the Amazing Concrete Countertop Guy who will arrive the next week.

February 11-12 The Worst Is Behind Us, Really! Install floor in kitchen. See Hugh very carefully drill holes for handles in brand-new expensive cabinets.

February 18-19 I have An Appliance and I'm Not Afraid to Use It! Install the appliances. Make some ice. POUR EVERYONE A GREAT BIG COCKTAIL!!!
