To my surprise American Water was installing the water meter when I showed up at 8:00 am. What a great way to start off a Tuesday morning after compiling a to do list yesterday. The water company has to tap into the water line and then provide me a meter to tap into. I was hoping that they would go on the other side of the sidewalk but they didn't. I guess I will have to do that. At least there now is water.
The stone siding advanced another 20' and I'm happy on the way it looks. However, I realized that we forgot to put the flashing on top of the deck ledger. We will have to do that tomorrow or have the stone installer to avoid those areas for a day or two. Waterproofing is easily the most forgotten step in residential construction and yet is the most important.
I went to a store called Capital Tristate which is like a Home Depot but only for electricians. They have everything an electrician could ask for. I need 4/0 SER to connect my subpanels to the meter. The reason is that they are about 50' apart. I 100% blame the architect for this design flaw. It cost me an extra $210.84. As the Architect I blame aesthetics.
