Demo began 1 June 2015. It’s now 24 July 2015.

Not counting weekends when Ranserve takes a break while Jacquela and Steven marvel …

Additional notes from Steven:
- With the siding going up, Ron and Mark tasked the Leons with picking out exterior paint colors.
- Steven and Ron met with candidate contractors for low-voltage, security, network, AV wiring; Steven is reviewing quotes.
- Steven met with Mark Rehberg from Ranserve to discuss addition of a potential third garage bay at back of existing two-bay garage — Jadin will way too soon be 16 and driving, and Steven needs a parking spot for his table saw and other power tools. Steven called Brett Grinkmeyer to request sketches. Brett will discuss parameters with Mark from Ranserve.
- Jacquela and Jadin visited the house every day this week. Progress is dramatic. This is the week when everyone fired on 12 cylinders.
