finishing 1st floor a/c chases
May 14, 2004
We installed the sliding glass doors in the master bedroom that will open onto a balcony. After that, we got the Vita Bath Aromatherapy Spa out of the container and took it up to the second floor and placed it in the master bathroom.

We spent most of the day finishing the distribution box for the a/c. We placed 2" foam panels around the outside edge of the hallway ceiling. After foaming the seams to make it airtight, we placed a 4 x 8 sheet of the foam as the bottom of the box. Billy put some steel channel on each side to hold it up and also for the studs for the drywall ceiling. We also cut through the foam and drywall where the a/c comes in and placed the collar around the flex tubing. Billy foamed it to make sure there was no air leakage. It's always harder working directly over your head and the hallway is 4 feet wide, so it's a little fun trying to get past the ladder, scaffold and one of us.
On Saturday we'll be filming part of an upcoming documentary on the state of the Everglades on location in Melbourne, Florida. This is a hard hitting 30 minute show on what is happening with the implementation of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.
On Sunday the Nolte Kitchens installation team will start the cabinets and continue through Monday. We'll be filming the installation process and shooting stills as well. We'll post the photos at the end of each day. Many people are excitedly waiting to see these fabulous cabinets and how they fit together with the incredible Jenn-Air Appliances.
