DOORS, SIDING, ETC.

Continued from previous page.

11/17/2008 - Once the lower portion of the north wall was sided, it was time to work on the upper section.
Sam Stickney (on the higher level of staging) and Bob Stickney install the j-channel,
and the paneling goes on.  It's gonna look great!
 
At the end of this workday, we got a call from Club member and electrician Ken MacFawn saying that he would be able to get the underground electric lines installed for us on the 19th.  Then it became a scramble to find someone who could dig the trench for us.  There were some big stumps to remove, so we needed something bigger than Gene or Louise's Kubota tractors.  Luckily, Club member Bob Richard was willing and had the time to come on such short notice.
 
11/18/08 - Bob Richard arrived early in the morning to get the trench dug.  The first order of the day was to dig a hole to anchor the guy wire for the electric pole.  Then the trench was dug for the underground electric cable running from the garage to the electric pole.
 

Bob Stickney and Bob Richard secure the guy wire to the weight.

Louise Stickney measures the depth of the trench

while Bob Richard waits in his excavator.

By noontime, the conduit, with the electric cable inside, was in the ground, ready to be buried. In the photo on the right, you can see that while the work on the electrical system was going on, Sam continued paneling the north gable end.

Master Electrician Ken MacFawn volunteered his time and expertise to connect the wiring at the garage and at the pole.  Thanks so much for your help, Ken!

 
Louise uses her tractor to fill in the trench.
The underground wiring is in and buried. Now only one more wall to put siding onl!
