On Friday, the electrician came in and installed the meter box outside, and panels in the basement:
I had hoped he would also get to roughing in the workshop, but not yet. They started erecting walls on Friday, and made a bunch more progress today. Here's a picture of the crew raising a wall. It looks almost effortless, doesn't it?
He's not even straining to get that wall into place. Maybe this is why:
Tomorrow, the framers should finish the exterior walls on the first floor, and start on the interior walls. The concrete guys should be there to pour the porch slab. But they need the south wall of the garage raised first. The framers built it today, but couldn't put it up right away because the concrete guys poured the garage walls a bit out of square. About 2 inches out of square. The Spancrete guys mentioned that it looked like the foundation was a bit out of square, but it didn't cause them any problems. They didn't catch it when the measured. So we'll resolve that problem in the morning. This is the first real error that I've had to deal with. Hopefully we don't delay the roof trusses with that error.
