Beautiful weather greeted the crew working Saturday November 5. Demolition of the front porch was completed. Minor plumbing line relocation was done while walls were open.
Speaking of walls, Matt and Mark framed new walls for the basement stairs. These will add safety (fall protection) as well as a sturdy place to mount handrails.
Mark and Mark dug and poured footings for the new back porch.
Outside cleanup continued and new bathroom fan/light units were installed, wired, and plumbed to vent outside. Matt and Nicole installed the shower and installed moisture-resistant drywall.
Thanks to Matt for spending his Friday evening shopping for materials to help us get an early start on Saturday.
Thanks to Hill Electric Supply in Glens Falls for donating the materials needed to update the wiring, panel, and smoke alarms in the house.
Thanks to Advanced Rental and Supply of Queensburyfor donating the use of a portable mixer and power auger.
Thanks to Matt and Nicole for working on Sunday to install the shower and drywall!
