Make sure those “ducks” are straight!

More comments today from Don. Today, we were trading jokes about throwing things. It started with me asking Alan to “throw me the hammer”. This was proceeded by Don offering to “throw me a piece of rebar” and so on.

At this point we have had guys digging trenches for a week and there is no sign when they are going to be finished. Each time we re-measure the center-lines for the register grilles they seem like they are a bit off from where we were before. It is truly one of those experiences that makes you feel like you are missing the big picture. Alan and I have been diligently re-checking our dimensions in the computer at the office, but find that things are still just a little off the mark in the field. It’s exhausting work and puts a big strain on the mind because you are visualizing things that as of yet do not exist and are having to plan for things that will not happen for a couple of months down the road. As much as we’ve checked and re-checked things we won’t know exactly how things turn out till the slab is done and by then it will be too late.

All this and we’re only into the HVAC system! Next week should be moving on to plumbing, and the covering of the ductwork. Stay tuned!
