Day nineteen winding down.  Good progress on removing the old siding.  Subs are saying they'll finish it after a ten hour day tomorrow with the new siding scheduled to start going up on Monday.

Electricians installed the new electrical panel in the basement as well as started work on wiring the apartment.  Finding that they either have a hatred for drywall and plaster or they just love making holes in ceilings and walls.  Drywall repair is adding up and they haven't even made it to the main part of the house.  Can't really complain as they are doing a great job.

Plumbers continued pressure testing the hot water system and are getting ready to install the new boiler.

The new water lateral gets installed tomorrow, so we will be without water most of the day.  The good news is that they won't need to dig up any sidewalk, which saves a few dollars.

Took a few pictures of names written on the walls from days-gone-by.

Supervisor and framer will be back on-site tomorrow to frame out and possibly install all of the new windows.
