(contrary to what i say in the video, nathan d. young never did help us install the windows as promised, in fact he just stopped returning phone calls…)
A big thank you to Tom Payne of Craftsman Homes Group for putting me in touch with Nathan Young of Nathan D. Young Const. Inc., who volunteered his guys to help us move our windows off the truck and into the house:
brothers, Brian and Rylan flank our friends Todd and Ely, all of whom are standing in front of a window that weighs nearly 600 pounds.
We took delivery of the windows last week. My heart sank as the delivery driver opened the door, the windows were strewn about the trailer:
It was obvious Peninsula Truck Lines took little care in securing the windows, with one rope loosely tied around ten windows (I don’t even want to guess as to the lack of care they took in loading the windows into the truck). Fortunately only one window was broken, though I’m sure the rough treatment didn’t do the rest of them any good…
Pat O’neal from Studor dropped by last week and helped us layout our plumbing correctly in order to use AAV (air admittance valves) in lieu of plumbing vents through the roof (holes in the roof are bad on two counts: potential leak points for water and definite leak points in the thermal envelope). Thanks, Pat!
