Day twelve - Plumbers and laborer right on time but supervisor nowhere in sight.  Suspect he may be picking up materials for the evaporative coolers which are supposed to be installed today. 

Casual walk-through found the laborer about to rip out more hardwood in the second apartment bedroom (where the closet used to be).  There is patch work that needs to be done to tie it back in where the interior walls used to be, but hoping we don't have to replace the entire area.  Flooring sub will be here today at 11am.

Plumbers are right back at it in the apartment bathroom and laundry room. 

Good progress today.

Cooling - HVAC subcontractor started work on the Evaporative Coolers.

Plumbing - Good progress on the apartment bathroom.

Construction - Door lintel installed over new opening to the mud room from the kitchen.

Old wall heaters removed from the apartment bedrooms.

Floor subcontractor came by this morning.  He is suggesting we put down new hardwood in the kitchen as the cost to patch what is already there is going to be prohibitive.  It appears the mud room has good wood that we are planning on refinishing.
