533 St Hwy 166 (Middlefield):
This past week the underground electric service was re-worked and passed inspection, so NYSEG turned the power on. No more pulling the generator thorough the mud and starting it up! The furnace installation is complete and the drywall is also complete. Most of the perimeter insulation in the basement was installed. We are making steady progress.
There will be NO work this coming week, while we take a much-deserved break for the Thanksgiving Holidays. We hope everyone enjoys the time off with family and friends.
When we return on Thursday, Nov 30th, we will start taping and spackling. We plan to get the LP gas installed between now and then.
