End of day fifteen and week three.  Not a great deal of physical progress but did have the electrical walk-thru this afternoon which was mind numbing.  Roofers were here to patch over old vent pipes and heater exhausts as well as secure the evaporative cooler cut-outs.  Plumbers continued their assault on the second floor heat pipes.

Artifacts - Framer found 1941 and 1945 pennies in the fourth bedroom on the second floor.  One was under a leg of the radiator and the other was in the base board that was being removed to accommodate the hot water pipes.  Not certain which one came from the moulding as it would possibly date the second story addition to the back of the house.

Construction - Doorway and space for shelves in the apartment bath were framed.
