Kitchen Lights, Guardian & Brick Progress

I stopped by the house just in time to catch the Guardian technician today.  He was moving along quickly.  We didn't purchase much from Guardian... just a few cable and phone outlets.   

Note: Make sure your cable and phone outlets are marked, so the electricians place electric outlets next to them.  Guardian was suppose to come out on Friday at the same time as the electricians, but they rescheduled for today, so we have a cable outlet in the middle of the wall with electric outlets on opposite ends of the wall.  We would have to use an extension cord to plug in our tv in our bedroom.   

The electricians have to come back anyway to install a recessed light in the kitchen, so our PM marked the wall in our bedroom to have the electricians move the outlet closer to the cable outlet.  We also requested to have a recessed light moved over in the kitchen (see pic below).  We put three of the recessed lights on one switch (one was an extra one that we purchased at the contract signing), so we can switch them out with pendant lights later.  This left no lighting on one end of the kitchen when the pendant lights are turned off.  We would have had a dark spot in the kitchen if the light circled in red remained that close to the one circled in yellow.  Other than that the brick is coming along nicely.

Next up, pre-drywall inspection on Wednesday, June 27th,  insulation is being installed on Thursday, June 28th, inspections on Friday and the drywall might start going up this weekend.

Emailed to our PM regarding the recessed light placement

  1. Great catch on the recessed lights and the outlet. Guardian put a phone line where we wanted a cable and no one noticed it until we were getting ready to have our cable installed and we were short a cable jack. Your brick looks great. Can't wait to see it finished and dressed up with shutters!

    1. It seems like a slow process compared to the electric and plumbing. Those poor guys have been baking in the sun all week.

  3. Love the brick! We actually met with our PM and marked our phone and cable locations. He made it very visible with bright pink paint. Hopefully you can the cable outlets and light moved without a problem.

    1. My PM said that Guardian used to meet with all of their customers. I guess they're cutting back like everyone else.

    1. If you catch the electricians out there, you can tell them where to place your outdoor outlets. Your PM may be able to mark it. Outdoor hose bibs too. We wish we would have moved two of the basement windows, because if we ever put I have a deck, they will be covered.
