Beginning of week 6.

Morning started with no sight of the supervisor and was, for the most part, an eerily quiet day.  The plumbers seemed to be tiring of the job as they have been here pretty much since the beginning.  Electricians were moving a little slowly as they start week three of their effort with at least a week to go.  Maybe it was just Monday.

Plumbers continued working on the boiler and hope to fire it up by mid week.

Electricians worked on the downstairs family room and what appears to be temporary power from the existing electrical lateral.

Apparently, the HVAC crew came by to install the vent for the boiler.  After finding this, I immediately called the supervisor as I wasn't very happy with the result.  Supervisor said that he was here and this is what we agreed upon.  It wasn't and it will not stay.

We picked up the re-porcelained sink this afternoon.  It looks great (but wasn't cheap).

Added about 50 new photographs from the 20's through the 60's of the house and the people who used to live here thanks to Sandi Hampton Jones.
