Back to Digging

— SjG @ 6:03 pm

While the crew gets ready to patch the driveway back up, they’re also digging down to the main sewer outflow from the main house. The front yard now looks like we’re aspiring WWI Western Front re-enactors.

Pipes, Vents, and More Digging

— SjG @ 10:51 am

Over the past few work days, more has been done on the HVAC and the gas/water/sewer hookups. During the integration of the new sewer outflow with the existant pipes, it was unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) discovered that the existant pipes are badly corroded, not to mention chock full of roots. We’d been on a program of yearly cleanings because of root intrusion, but it became clear that this pipe, probably dating back to 1939, is probably in need of replacement.

So yesterday was partially spent trying to dig up and move the rose bushes from the areas where the new digging will happen.

Belated Update

— SjG @ 1:06 pm

Much of last week had people working on the building until it got dark, so I was unable to get any pictures.

Over the weekend, I was able to go in and see the progress on the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.

Situation the same

— SjG @ 5:52 pm

A lot of excavation in the front, getting ready to hook up gas and water. The plumber is working late, so I have no pictures from inside the structure again.

There could be rain tonight, so we’ll see what tomorrow brings.
