Jonathan Shorter and his crew resumed work on the chimney installation. They said it would be a rather large project expected to take a week and half. They surveyed the ceiling, and outside the building, before starting the installation.
The crew assembled large pipes and installed them right above the Stefano Ferrara oven. Then the crew moved into the servery (wait station) and kitchen. We didn't realize they would have to remove existing pipes in the kitchen and replace them. We thought they would leave minimal dust in the kitchen. Boy, we were wrong. It was like going back to the beginning where we had to demolish the kitchen floor to replace the plumbing pipes underneath the floor.
They also opened up the hole above the 3-compartment sink where the light well is located. Ahh, sun rays came into the kitchen. I bet the kitchen was happy to see the sun, having been isolated for who-knows-how-long. Pardon me for my silliness. :)
We were told that we were responsible to rent and build the scaffold. Gulp. Would the store be open on Saturday, and do they have one available right away? We scrambled and searched on the internet for local equipment rental stores. Whew, one store out of 5 stores had one that met our requirements. Russ and his friend, Allen built the scaffold going from the 2nd story upwards. The building is four floors high. The crew continued to work on the installation over the weekend and this week.
Friday is going to be an important day because the inspector will come to examine their work on the chimney installation. Please, please, please, please… (I can continue typing please here…) send positive vibes to the inspector and have him approve the work. If we get the approval, we can finally start the curing process in our Stefano Ferrara oven.
