It’s been about a week since our last post, but during that time a lot of things have been going on behind the scenes.
We arranged for the low voltage contractor (who will be installing our in-home vacuum system) to install custom conduit runs throughout the outside walls of the house. This will make it easier for me to run auxiliary media through the spray foam insulated walls, like CAT6 or other standards as they come out.
When we met the builder and the tradesmen on site last week, we got the impression from the electrician that the electrical work would begin later that day. When we dropped by the lot on Friday to check on the progress, it didn’t seem like they had started anything yet; however, the HVAC work had begun, the great room windows had been delivered, and the metal roofing accents were put up.
In retrospect, it seems as if the electrical work may have been contingent on the HVAC work being finished, or the electrician was held up on another job. Either way, our low voltage contractor reached out to us yesterday to let us know he can’t begin his work until the electrical has been installed. He let the builder know about the delay, and we’re hoping to see those trades completed sometime in the next couple weeks.
In better news, as of yesterday, the HVAC installation appears to be complete! Here are some progress pictures and a video of the finished work:
