We are now officially counting down to the scheduled move-in date. 10 days to 11 March.
One of the closet doors in Jadin’s bedroom swings open toward the tall window at the back of the room. The City of Austin inspector requires us to replace the conventional glass with tempered.
Landon and Robert from Martel Windows arrived today with the tempered glass.
We are working to qualify Emerald Hill for, potentially, four stars in the the Austin Green Build program. It requires a make-up air system — when the exhaust hood over the cooktop is pulling fumes out of the house from the cooktop, the make-up system replenishes by pulling outside air into the house.
Above, the duct and motor and control unit for the make-up air system installed in the attic over the garage, connected to a duct run that penetrates the drywall to reach the kitchen.
Ranserve replaced the one glass tile that cracked to the left of the pot filler. To get to it, they removed the pot filler above the cooktop. We discovered that the wrong escutcheon was installed.
Today, the pot filler is mounted again, with the correct escutcheon, and a rubber gasket to cushion it against the tile.
