All the last minute details.

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Busy, busy, busy! We spent the day juggling the sheet metal company, the builder cutting the hole for the exhaust ducting, and the electricians; waiting for the gas company (they never showed up), finishing the wiring of the control panel, and mounting the control panel. Now the control panel just needs to be hardwired to the roaster (oh and there is one last shot of my shoes… for some reason). It was a super productive day though, and I am really happy with the progress we made. The sheet metal company offered to come by tomorrow to finish the ducting, but we told them to come Monday since we need to finish the hard wiring tomorrow, there was no reason for them to work on Saturday. The builder is going to stop by Sunday to finish cutting the hole for the exhaust, which will bring us so close to the end. The biggest problem we are having is with the gas company, they are supposed to come by on Monday but they had also said they would be here today. The burner has to be installed by a certified company and if we are done with everything else, which we will be by Monday, we will just be waiting for them to show up. We clearly can’t start the roaster without the burner, so our hands will be tied. All we can do is get everything else done so we will be absolutely ready when the gas company finally shows up. So that is what we will do!
