We’ve been incredibly busy the last few weeks and I’ve fallen behind on my building posts. I’ll try to get caught up over the next few days. Here are pics of the second floor windows and siding going up.
With some of the second floor windows and a few panels of the siding you start to get an idea of what the showroom building is going to look like.
We have sheetrock!
Curbs are done as is the ground floor showroom siding. Today the start on the upstairs siding.
The new embroidery department will be three times the size of of our existing one. The walls have been insulated and the sheetrock will be done in the next couple of days.
They say this machine is called a curb crapper.
With the roof done they’ve moved on to the siding. There’s a lot going on inside, too. HVAC ducts are going up and the fire sprinkler pipes are being hung from the ceiling. The low voltage wires for the phones, computer network, and security system have been run. Electrical wiring in the interior walls is also about done and will be inspected tomorrow. They wrapped up the plumbing a few days ago so now the sheetrock can be hung in the next few days.
Tomorrow is a big day. Pouring of concrete curbs will begin and PG&E will hook up the main panel to the transformer they installed almost a month ago. No more generators!
Earlier this week the roof got finished. Yesterday they opened the insulation under the skylights.
