Good news of the day:  We passed inspection!  This means that we can now move on to drywall and installation of all the stuff we're actually going to see.

Electricians made more progress on the second floor wiring.  They will hopefully finish everything in the main house early next week and then move on to the electrical lateral and the barn.

Plumbers spent most of the day installing the evaporative cooler water lines.  The only major work they have left to do is the mud room sink and drain which they'll probably complete after the washer and dryer are moved upstairs.  They'll also be back to install the baseboard heaters after drywall is complete.  Tomorrow, they'll be firing the boiler and possibly moving the hot water to the new side-arm tank, which means we will be getting rid of the old water heater.

The supervisor spent most of the morning getting ready for the inspection and then disappeared after lunch.  He's out on Friday so won't see any progress on the construction front until next week.
