We had the final walk-through with the architect yesterday. There are some minor things that need to be completed yet, but we now have full occupancy of the building. This will likely be my last blog post for this project. Thanks for following the blog!
Northwest Drywall finished the stucco work today. All that is left are some minor odds and ends inside the building, and then the contract work will be done. We are hoping to have a certificate of permanent occupancy in the next week.
Northwest Drywall was back today to begin the prep work for the final coat of stucco. They got a primer coat put on today.
Northwest Drywall is just about done with the second coat of stucco. They have to finish the east side of the east beam/arch yet. The brown coat will then need to cure for 7-10 days before the finish coat can go on.
Northwest got the brown coat on the west side of the carport today.
Northwest Drywall started applying the first coat of stucco (called the “scratch coat”) to the carport ceiling today. Because this is traditional stucco, there will be three coats total – the “scratch coat”, then the “brown coat”, and finally the “finish coat”.
The mesh lath for the stucco work was installed on the carport ceiling today.
Northwest Drywall finally came back today to start prepping the carport ceiling and arches for the stucco. They have been busy installing the wire mesh lath that the stucco will be installed on. We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! Sod was also laid on the west side of the building about a week and a half ago.
The forms for the east sidewalk came off on the afternoon that it was poured, and the concrete has been curing for the past couple of days. Heiderscheidts were here to grade the gravel side of the sidewalk later in the day.
There has finally been some activity at the construction site again. A masonry crew from Heymann was here to pour the sidewalk on the east side of the building today.
