Electricians electrified and plumbers plumbed.  Sensing subcontractor fatigue.  Had a discussion with the contractor this afternoon about expectations.

Pot filler, apartment shower and new water lines to the still-working second floor bath installed.  More progress on the wiring with the first floor office/future family room completed as well as a new outside outlet and wiring of the boiler.  More knob-and-tube found under the second floor hardwood with hopes we could replace the wiring in the dining room light without punching any holes.  No such luck as the knob-and-tube is run via single wires through small holes in the joists.

Expecting the supervisor to be on-site tomorrow to work on the doorways to get ready for a partial inspection next Thursday (a week later than originally planned).  We'll get the additional wiring inspected at another time in order to advance the work on drywall installation and repair so we can get flooring and then the kitchen installed.

Trench for the new electrical lateral will go in next Monday as they are still waiting on location markers for gas, etc.  Dumpster will make a temporary exit on Friday or Monday.  Port-O-John stays.
