Inspite of the rain and thunderstorms, we are making headway. As you can see, it is a mess but there are 6” dust pipes sticking out of the ground. Some on the end may not be visable as we ran out of glue for the extension to raise it above where the cement floor will be. The crew will finish up today so that the inspector and the electrician can come by tomorrow and then we will pour cement Monday. Because they cracked my cement driveway, the crew is doing the dust collector pipe for me for free, but I have to supervise to make sure everything is the way I want it. The guys are good to work with and have done a fine job. For the most part, every pipe arises from the floor in exactly the spot I required. One pipe is a foot off, but it is a perimeter pipe so the placement is not critical.
The electrician was here yesterday, looking the job over and getting ready for his part. So, I am cautiously optimistic that this project will complete some day next month. That is if we don’t have a hurricane or some other setback! The weather has been utterly awful with high humidity and short thunderstorms during the day. The crew worked till dark last night compacting and filling…I guess that is why they left such a mess.
The General Contractor has been fantastic thru all of this so far and I am glad I chose him above the others.
But I am tired and plan to sit around today. There are only three extension pipes to glue and tape and the below grade dust system will be complete.
