Wow, as I look back on the week, I wonder how it all happened. The building inspection revealed that steps are all 1/2" too short due to how they are supposed to be measured (for the record, it's nose-to-nose as opposed to riser-to-nose). Anyhow, we were going to have to rip them all out and move a steel beam, BUT we very fortunately granted an AMMR (alternative means and methods request) allowing us to provide 2" wide contrasting tape on the front of each stair. You won't be able to miss it!
The electrical situation reared its ugly head again. The city electrical inspectors took issue with the service load and condition of equipment PG&E has in place. Thus, PG&E is going to do a whole new round of calculations and site inspections. This will keep things interesting. If it turns out PG&E service is inadequate, come visit us at our opening next year....However, there will be a temporary solution so we're only strongly concerned, as opposed to freaked-out.
Moving on, electrical be dammed, the sheet rock went up today. Yes, all of it in one day! I have an office with walls, there's a bathroom, no holes in the ceiling and no holes in odd spots on the other walls. It really looks like a different space. If we could only hire the sheet rockers to do all the work, the project would have been completed two months ago.
Interviews: we began interviewing this week as well and met some really good folks. If you know anyone looking for employment, email us for an application.
Happy news about the sheet rock and the interviews, so a nice way to start the weekend!
PS. We're doing a mosaic right outside the front entrance. So, even when you're looking down, you'll have reason to smile upon entering Farley's East.
