Above, Cris from Ranserve finished hanging plywood on the walls of what will be the library/dining room — both side walls. Drywall will cover the plywood. Steven will use the plywood backing behind the drywall to support bookshelves.
Look how clean this room is — swept, with no building supplies and brick rubble laid out on the floor!
Kevin Rehberg, apprentice builder, son of Mark, the president of Ranserve, the builder at Emerald Hill — Kevin cleaned up the house after an intense week with framers, plumbers, electricians, HVAC and other teams working in the house, quality-control inspections, and multiple deliveries. The house looks superb. The floors are swept. Lumber is piled neatly. Shattered brick is shoveled out to the boneyard. All the HVAC peel-and-stick trash is gone. This attention to detail should not go unremarked, unrecognized.
Draw 2. Brett Grinkmeyer, architect, signed off on the work done to date. Steven countersigned and submitted paperwork to Larry at South Star Bank for payment of draw 2 to Ranserve via wire transfer.
Framing and rough-in plumbing. Almost complete.
Flooring. Jacquela and Steven are scheduled to meet Monday to explore flooring options, now that two flooring experts recommend against trying to refinish existing oak floors. This is going to hurt the budget.
