The winery gets electrified
Today the electrical crew dug the trench and ran the wire from the transformer to the meter socket at the new building. You will notice that we had to remove a portion of our walkway the night before so the trencher could get through. Amy took the day off to prune the grapes so she was able to take some "action" shots. You get an inside look at what the guts of a transformer and a meter socket look like.
The final picture shows what we worked on last weekend during the lousy weather. We began creating a soffit to cover the HVAC runs. The pic shows it taking shape - the plywood that covers the duct work. These strips of plywood are attached to 2x2's which are attached to the joists from the floor above. After these are all up we will run 2x2's along the bottom and then finally attach some across the underside of the ducts. This will all get drywalled in time.
The weather is looking up for this weekend so we will probably shift back to siding.
