week 12: the windows are in!

The windows are in! Shiloh along with Jeremy, Derek and Brenden of Classic Sash and Door Company spent three days installing our new windows, screens and storms. What can I say? They look fabulous! Besides being more energy efficient and having a tighter seal than our drafty single panes, the Marvin wood windows allow less sound transmittal, making it much quieter inside. Ahhh, peace at last.

The other trades were busy making sure that everything was done and in order before sheetrocking takes place next week.

Nick of Premier Plus Construction Inc. redid some framing as we were concerned about the stair width not meeting code. He also framed in the ventilation fans and the shower.

Aaron of Portland Metro Electric put the final touches on the electrical.

Andy of Anctil Plumbing, Inc. tweaked the height of the shower drain and minimized the kitchen drain.

We executed the pre-sheetrock walk through to make sure all the mechanical, plumbing, electrical, low-voltage and security wiring were correct. It’s easier and less costly now to make any changes as the walls and ceiling are still unsheathed. Next week will be a different story.

Tune in next time for the pre-sheetrock inspection! The project will be flying from here on out.
