Odell and Team Ranserve continue to punch through the punch list …

Above, Cris uses Steven’s biscuit cutter to slice slots into the two pieces of wood that Cris is using to build a deep shelf in the electronics closet — for the cable modem, switches, router, UPS, power strip, etc.

What’s really cool is this — Cris needed a biscuit cutter. Steven pulled his Porter Cable out of the stack of plastic bins stored in the garage for moving in. This is the first time on this gig that one of Steven’s tools has been used to build something in the house. It’s an honor to put the tool in the hands of Cris, who is capable of nearly anything — concrete, framing, windows, cabinets, shelving, flooring, plumbing …

This is the shelf that Cris built in the electronics closet. It needs paint. But ... four holes for wires to pass through, and ledgers carefully nailed to studs to avoid hitting any of the miles of wire traveling through the back wall of the closet to the electrical panel.

Odell replaced the leaking faucet at the left-hand sink in the master bath -- and shifted the medicine cabinet about one inch to the left to center it over the faucet. Odell spotted the install error late last week.

At the end of their day, Cris and Jacinto cut and glued t-molding into the gap in the floor at bedroom 4 between the original laminate and the new hickory. To help set the glue for 24 hours, they weighted down the threshold strip with some of the moving boxes volunteered by Steven. Along with concrete pavers pulled from the garage.

Cris and Jacinto repeated the threshold work at the entry to bedroom 4 -- aka the train room.

At some point today, Odell and team removed the damaged strip of Hardieboard from the exterior wall of the garage addition, nailed up a new board.
