More renovation guests! Thursday afternoon, Rob and Rob from Moore Electric came in to check out their role. Rob and Rob did the full walkabout to scope out the work, and created a shopping list of parts. They decided to start early Friday morning. (I think the real reason they wanted to start Friday morning was because they heard Terry from Durham Medical would be taking pictures of the team at work and they wanted to be immortalized on the Durham Medical website.)

Friday morning, armed with the tools and parts required to wire the Suze’s room and laundry area, Rob and Rob attacked the job like they were shock-full of 1000 volts. It was an electrifying performance.

Luke from Titan Plumbing (without his partner in crime, Dave) finished off the plumbing at the same time. At one point, 5 guys were working in the space of that new room. I’m actually shocked that with all those power tools no one got hammered, drilled or sawed in half. Terry from Durham Medical came for the photo shoot while they were all crammed in the room; I’m sure she found it equally amusing that all that talent was confined to that one little area.

The thing that impressed me most about the tradespeople working on this project, is that every single one looked at the big picture first and asked clarifying questions, rather than jumping right in. Only when they understood the job and had planned their work did any tools make a sound.

McLellan Contracting, Titan Plumbing, Moore Electric and the rest of the crew have all been above first rate. If I were to suggest an improvement, I would ask for more name diversity in the workforce. Of the 9 people on this project, we’ve had 3 Robs, 2 Daves and 2 Johns. Luke and Darrel feel left out because they don’t share their name with anyone.
