533 St Hwy 166 (Middlefield):

This past week we bored holes for the rough plumbing and wiring, and the rough wiring was completed for the bedrooms.  The electric panel donated by Green Mountain Electric Supply was installed.  A platform for the basement egress window was completed.  The basement sheetrock was completed.  And best of all, the siding was completed by the crew from St. Mary’s RC Church (Oneonta), with Tom Rowe guiding the crew.  

This coming week we will start the rough plumbing, continue work on the rough wiring, and start the roof.  Roof shingles and a shingle elevator are due on site Thursday morning.  

Respectfully submitted,
