Weekly Update #86&87, 3-10 Jun 2022

Author: Jason Bush

Glenn has started the installation of the cabinets. The bathrooms are almost done, so that we can get back on schedule and get McKenzie Stone & Tile out to install the bathroom counters. Misty and Jayson are in the process of picking out the hardware for the cabinets from Mavericks in Eugene. They are looking very nice. Below can be seen the gas fireplace in the master bedroom that Ambassador Fireplaces donated & installed for the Southmayds, as well as the start of the bathroom cabinets.

Ruben, with Bam Construction has got the back patio slabs built-up, compacted, and ready to pour. He indicated he will probably want to pour mid next week, so I am trying to contact our third concrete pumping company who indicated previously that they wanted to contribute.

Superior Electric will be sending a crew out the week of June 20th, possibly before, to start the final installation of the electrical system; this would include hooking up the main electrical power panel, and energizing the system, outlet covers & light switch plates, and interior & exterior lights.

Taylor’s Restaurant Equipment will be delivering the kitchen appliances on Wednesday or Thursday next week. Brent, the owner, stated that the cabinet install is not too critical as far as appliance installation goes. The island would need to be in for the dishwasher, and that should be done by then.

We have a new small business owner, Kim Cooney, in Cottage Grove who graciously donated a massage table for the therapy room. I need to stop by and pick up the sheets that go with the table. We want to thank Kim for the support and table, and wish her new business venture well.

Chris Demers, owner of G2 Enterprises, Inc. has gotten back to me with solutions to a big problem of getting the stumps that were dug up to provide a foundation pad for the new home off the SHB site. Chris is currently building some duplexes in Veneta, but also owns and operates G2 Enterprises, a heavy equipment company. As you can see in the picture below, these are not your everyday tree stumps. I think it took about 6 hours to dig one of them up last Veterans Day when we were preparing the building pad.

David Daugherty, our landscape architect, sent us a site plan that incorporates all the thoughts and ideas that were discussed. We can work off of it when we have another work / clean-up party, which is tentatively scheduled for the third week in July. Probably Saturday the 23rd.


Thank you all,

Jason Bush, CBO
