Sept. 4 Construction Meeting Notes

Harold, Dorothy and Bob met from 11:20am to noon.

A progress report was the main item discussed at this meeting

910s: Two units have final punch list items; the work on the “NRP”–non-removable pin–hinges is still pending.

900s: The general contractor has said his punch list is complete, so those items are being confirmed; the plaster punch list is still to come.

920s: Interior work is complete, Bob is compiling punch lists (which are now shorter, since contractors are addressing issues found in the 910s and 900s). Finish coat of door/window paint in progress, and final placement of roof tiles in progress.Image

930s: Exterior stucco rough patching completed, and gray waterproofing Sto coat almost done. The color coat will start soon, projected to take about 3 weeks.Image

940s: Doors on the rear of the units are installed with paper tie-in; front (entry courtyard) side now in progress.Image

950s: Rear doors and windows are being done with the 940s as time & manpower permit–not the focus yet though.

960s: Upper deck framing with waterproofing coat complete (“rain ready”–further surface coatings still to come). Deck doors will be done prior to other door/window work, but aren’t in yet. Roofing & tiles coming off and Sarnafil going on. Some trellises have been reinstalled.

970s: Roofs, decks and trellises starting very soon.

Workers’ break time: some homeowners have placed their lawn furniture out for the use of workers during their breaks. However there have been problems with workers using furniture they were not invited to use, leaving trash, what if something is damaged or breaks, etc., so the rule is that workers need to find their own spaces not using WCP property. Even though we may like to be hospitable, homeowners are discouraged from inviting this kind of use.

Landscaping replacement: the Board and landscaping committee have not had time to address this yet.

Next meeting: Wednesday Sept. 4, 2013, 11am.
