American Plumbing has almost finished installing the rough-in plumbing throughout the house, including the new master bathroom and main floor half bath which are now framed in.
Ed Bell & Son Paint Removal is removing the lead based paint from the fir lap siding. We still have to figure out the best method of cleaning up the original hard coat stucco.
Arbor Pro has completed the tree work. This included our misstep with (the lack of) permits to trim the street trees. After consultation with Urban Forestry our application to cut down one of the two trees was approved. The stump was ground out last week and work should start shortly cutting in a driveway to create the coveted off-street parking. We will plant a new, more appropriate street trees in the fall from the list of approved trees.
Ron Beck is installing the HVAC system for the second floor (bedrooms) and attic. There will be a natural gas furnace (92%) in the attic with an AC unit (14 SEER). Portland Green Heat will be upgrading the oil furnace and installing an above ground tank for the basement and first floor heat. The new owners will be able to use up to B99 Biodiesel in that furnace. The use of two furnaces also minimizes, and almost eliminates, any softfits which are very undesirable in historic homes.
