Notes, 20 Nov. 2015

Steven ordered from Amazon last night the Schlage deadbolts, door handles and levers, irrigation controller and other items that will soon be needed by Ron Dahlke and team. Buying the Schlage hardware at Amazon saves 30 percent over the same product at Lowe’s or Home Depot.

We're puzzling out how to properly install the bathroom vanities. There's a lower shelf that Cris and Ron carefully removed from this unit. Cris cut a template for the shelf out of MDF. When placed against the wall in the bathrooms, the shelf obstructs the plumbing cleanouts -- or the cleanouts are located inside the cabinet, which would force us to carve up the cabinet boxes. But ... the schematics for the vanities clearly identify how high to locate the cleanout on the wall behind the vanity -- instructions that were not followed. Which may force us to open up the walls, again, to have the plumbers relocate the cleanouts. Stay tuned.
