Architect delivered the new floor plans on Monday and the city has cancelled the check... so I expect their review of the plans to take place very soon. I expect all will be in order as far as that is concerned.
Plumbers spent two days repairing some leaking pipes in the heating system... and breaking many others in the process. They found that there were many parts of the boiler system that were completely clogged or damaged beyond repair. They've drained the system a few times, removed faulty parts, installed newer/better parts, repaired all the leaks....and I think they spooked Harry away! I'll know today when I'm there. But the boiler should be working properly. It better be!
Electrical work was begun a few days ago... bringing everything up to code, switching out old fixtures for new, pulling cable and getting outside lights to work properly, removing track lighting to be re-used suspended from the ceiling in the art gallery... and much more. There is still a great deal of electrical to do, especially once the theatre lights arrive... hopefully Tuesday or Wednesday of this next week.
Theatre lights are ordered. $$$$$$$$$!!! Yeah, it's that expensive to open a theatre. Would I have done this had I known how expensive it would be? Hmmmm.... probably so.
And the floor! Oh, that terrazzo floor! Will it ever end?
Now to see if someone has done his homework on the seating platforms!
Inspectors are waiting in the wings to make sure I've corrected all the code violations. I need to set up the final inspection, but I'm trying to make sure I have as much of the required work done as possible. The checklist is getting smaller and smaller. Soon, very soon.... I hope!
Met with the Business Improvement District again on Friday. They're thrilled to see the progress and want IS to participate in the West Allis A La Carte event on June 1st. Comparing calendars, it appears we may be able to plug in to several of the city events over the course of the year. Looking forward.... always.
I keep asking people to pray that I don't have a heart attack until AFTER March 1st. I hope they're praying HARD!
