Our House Diary #62, More Details! Jan. 30, 2017

“The devil is in the details”, or so the old expression goes! In fact there is some truth to it in that there is so much to remember to do and so little time to do it in!!

This past week was busier for more students on the Our House – the Interior Finish group was working on finishing up the last of the drywall in Unit 1:


(nice perspective, Evan!!)

….the electricians were having a final go over and tidy-up, pre moving day:


…..we took the opportunity of extra hands to finalize the stringers and rough treads and install them, using up a lot of scrap and crappy materials where possible:

….the wall extension that will define the stair well between flights was built and tested:



….and the RTC grads were diligently working on the bathroom cabinets with the goal of installing them by the end of this week:


I also spend some more time shovelling on site….*sigh*; hey, someone’s gotta do it! Looks like I will be back there this week too!

This is the last full week the modules will be in the centre: I hope to finish off all the last details and load up the units as shipping containers for materials needed on site.

Stay tuned!
