We continue to make good progress on site. Here’s what we did this week: We installed our sign!
We trenched and poured footings for the garage and lanai.
The plumbers hooked up the drains around the outside of the basement walls to flow to the sump well where the sump pump will later be installed (and probably never needed for our sandy, dry basement).
The plumber also installed the sanitary sewer system and hooked it to the sewer lead we brought in from the street when we dug the basement.
Our electrician installed the meter box so Detroit Edison can bring us power and the workers won’t have to run noisy generators.
We got our stone and brick samples and will make a mockup wall next week to show how they will look with the shingles and stain colors our architect, Dominick Tringali, picked. We will tweak these selections and then show them to the developer for his approval.
The steel beams were ordered and should be out next week so we can set them before we pour the basement floor once the inspector approves all of the underground plumbing.
Any questions, comments or requests regarding future or past topics? We will be happy to shape the discussion so it is relevant to you.
