Weekly meeting held this morning with the contractor, project manager and supervisor to review the schedule and walk the electrical changes.  We are now projecting completion in mid-October (+- 14 weeks total).  The big ticket items needing completion are the electrical and plumbing as we need to get past inspection to begin drywall.

Supervisor is still working at another job site to help an elderly couple so no construction work was completed today. 

Electricians finished up some interior work in the apartment and then installed the new electrical boxes on the back of the barn and the back of the house for the new buried electrical service.  We'll have to move the dumpster in order to trench across the back yard.

Plumbers continued working on the boiler with installation of the hot water tank and more copper tubing.

While under the crawl space this afternoon in order to run a new cable television line for the master bedroom, I found a wadded-up piece of paper which turned out to be a small section of The Denver Express newspaper dated September 1st, 1909.  Almost 100 years to the day!
