As expected, the weather's turned, and a typical Shuswap winter is upon us. Fortunately, we find ourselves in excellent shape at one of our new starts in Magna Bay. We've completed our framing, window installations and roofing on this gorgeous custom two story in the nick of time. A couple of windows and doors have been backordered, but we've completed lockup thanks to some plywood.
This week, with the Christmas break just a few sleeps away, we're pushing forward with mechanical rough-ins. Our plumbing, heating and ventilation crews have been onsite, and we're optimistic we'll have them complete by the time Santa saddles up. We also completed our electrical walk-through with the clients last week, and that means we're proceeding with electrical rough-ins as well.
Also on the schedule are post-rough-in backframing and CSRD building inspections for framing. As you can see from the photos below, we've also got the house wrapped in Tyvek to help protect building materials and our crews from the elements.
We're really pleased with the progress on this project, as December and January are always tough months given that trades tend to take off longer breaks throughout the holidays, and the new omicron variant is also slowing construction across the province. We will push as close to Christmas as we can, but we also appreciate that every employee and every tradesman who works on our homes deserves a real break during the holidays -- particularly after the year we’ve had.
Look for more updates on this project in the new year.
