When I arrived at the job site this morning, one of the first things I noticed was a large number of bees (about 50-100) flying around the second floor rafters. Brad suggested I call a bee exterminator. I couldn't find the one he recommended, but I did find George from Bee Busters and arranged to meet with him later in the afternoon.

The landscapers were working on the driveway form. After a few corrections, here's what the finished walkway form looks like.

Enis, one of the installers on Ekrem's crew was there today putting up ceiling fans and light fixtures.

Chris from Dave Bengel's crew showed up to start trimming out the low voltage wires.

Two of the plumbers showed up in the early afternoon and began by moving all of the fixtures from Brad's trailer to their correct rooms. They prepared everything so that when they come back tomorrow, they can do all the installation. In doing so, they found that some of the showers will need extension kits for the mixing valves because the tile installers built up their mud too thick when they were putting on the tiles, and now the trim can't reach the valve. Brad said he'll call Michele and order the extension kits.

I began installing some ceiling mounted speakers, starting with the dining room.

Later in the afternoon, I met with George, the Bee Buster. Gary and Brad happened to be there too. George told us that we have a case of "preswarming" -- the scouts are looking for a location to build their hive. In the evening, George delivered a trap to attract the bees and (hopefully) keep them out of the attic. I hung it up by the back balcony.
We'll see what happens....
