Brad talked to the installer from SolarCity this morning. Because SolarCity is a subcontractor, Brad has a requirement to be named as an additional insured on their general liability insurance policy. I called Chris over at SolarCity to make sure this gets taken care of.
I stopped by the job site briefly this morning and noticed that Jeff, the HVAC contractor, had cut registers in the subfloors of the first floor rooms. I quickly called Brad because we had wanted the registers to be in the walls or ceilings. He explained to me, because of all the strong walls and areas which cannot be penetrated, they could not accomplish that on the first floor. The basement rooms and the second floor rooms, however, will have their registers in the ceiling.
I picked up the rough-in valves from Michelle at Cornelia's later in the morning and dropped them off with Brad in the afternoon.
In the early afternoon we spent a couple of hours at University Electric hearing yet another opinion on the various types and brands and models of kitchen appliances. We are getting closer to the final selection of our appliances. At this time we will almost certainly choose the brand new Dacor Epicure ER36D 36" dual-fuel range, and the Sub-Zero Model 695/S 48" side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. As for the triple stack, we are leaning towards putting just a Thermador microwave oven and convection oven in a stack of two and an integrated Dacor warming tray under a counter. The triple stack is just too tall, forcing either the convection oven or warming tray (which ever one is on the bottom) to be too low to the ground.
Finally, this evening I stopped by the SolarCity office and paid the deposit for the solar panel installation.
