10 Things to Discuss With Your Contractor Before Work Starts


Anne Higuera CGR, CAPS
Houzz Contributor and Seattle remodeler

Before work begins, make sure you and your contractor are on the same page about how things will go. This often takes the form of a pre-construction meeting, which may be most useful when held at your home and at least one week ahead of construction — particularly if you have furniture or other belongings to move.

Here are a few of the most important things to cover at this meeting:

Working hours and days
. Most construction companies have standard work hours. These may vary depending on whether the home is vacant or occupied. Make sure you understand if the contractor or subcontractors intend to work into the evenings or on weekends. Having this conversation at the start will help set expectations

Parking and trash/recycling days. Depending on where your project is, there may be ample parking or almost none. Neighbors may be territorial about their parking spots. You may even need a permit from the jurisdiction where you’re working to park Dumpsters or other equipment.

Make sure you also communicate when your trash or recycling pickup takes place. You don’t want your contractor to block the road or alley with equipment on those days.

Access and security. Talk through how the contractor should access your home and where a key will be kept; and review security codes for alarm systems. Many alarm companies will allow you to set a temporary code for your contractor to use that’s separate from yours, so that when the job is done, the code can be canceled. Also talk about other security measures, such as fences and signs.

Communication and contacts. Get a complete list of phone numbers and email addresses for the contractor and the employee who is your main on-site contact. Make sure the contractor has all of your contact information as well, including an emergency contact, so that he or she can reliably reach you.

Ask how information about the project will be communicated to you. This could take the form of an email summary every day or every once in a while, a daily or weekly meeting, or updates posted to an online project management system. If you need communication in a way the contractor had not planned on, speak up and he or she may be able to provide it to you.
Site and landscape protection. This is the main reason to have the pre-construction meeting on-site. It’s useful to walk around the house with your contractor to talk about where site protection will go (ZipWalls, temporary walls, tarps) so that everyone understands where the construction zone will be.

Temporary walls might have a door or lock — discuss what you prefer. This also gives you a clear idea of how much you need to move out. In larger projects, you may want to remove pictures and fragile items on walls shared with the construction area, as they may be rattled during demolition and framing.

Walking around the house will also give you the opportunity to talk about where to place the Sani-Can or Dumpster, where material can be staged, and which plants and trees should be protected. Expect to have to re-sod or restore areas where material is staged and workers are walking.

Neighbors. If you haven’t told your immediate neighbors yet, now is the time. Neighbors will likely be impacted by parking and noise, and it’s best to let them know ahead of time. Alert your contractor if you have neighbors who may be particularly sensitive, so that he or she can tread lightly if possible. This is also an opportunity to talk about whether your contractor plans to put up a sign and where it will go.

Location of utility shutoffs. On your walkabout make sure your contractor knows where all of the utility controls are: water, gas and electrical panel. They are concealed in some homes. Also, let your contractor know if there are appliances or circuits that cannot be turned off, like a deep freezer, pool pump or fish tank.

Household workers and pets. If you have cleaners, gardeners or other household help, it’s important to let your contractor know when those people are scheduled to be on-site. And think about suspending service while the project is underway.

If you have pets and intend to keep them on-site during construction, talk with your contractor about how and where you will confine them. Your contractor is unlikely to want to take on the responsibility for caring for and keeping track of your pet, so make sure you have a plan. Construction noise and disruption can be stressful for animals, so consider options for where your pets will stay.

Set a day and time for a regular meeting
. The first meeting is really important, but subsequent meetings during construction are also important. Set a regular time — whether weekly, every other week or at certain milestones — so that you have the opportunities to see the work as it progresses, answer questions from your contractor and ask questions of your own.

Miscellaneous questions about billing, scheduling and anything else on your mind. You may be feeling entirely confident about how the project will go, or you may have dozens of questions — from how billing will be handled, to who will be there every day, to where the mail will be delivered while your mail slot is being demolished. This is your opportunity to ask any lingering questions ahead of starting day. Then you’ll really be ready.

You Just Moved In…. Now What? 6 Immediate Yard Care To-Dos

Scane

Posted in Curb Appeal, by Blog Contributor on June 16, 2014

Home owners will be off to a good start with their new yards by following these important “move-in” steps. First and foremost, members of The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), the national landscape industry association, recommend making safety a priority for your yard by doing the following:

1. Do a walk-thru of the yard and check for any dangers. Inspect the trees and evaluate the health of mature ones. One of the greatest assets in a yard are mature trees — they not only provide beauty but also shade and significant cooling to the home. Make note of any trees that don’t look healthy, may be diseased, leaning or are too close to the house. Consult with a licensed arborist to assess the health of your trees.

2. Evaluate the hardscape. Make sure any hardscape areas – stone or retaining walls, concrete or brick patios, tile paths, or wooden decks — are not heaving or creating tripping hazards.

3. Inspect the drainage around the house. The drainage should not cause any water to stand near or next to the foundation, which will prevent saturation of the soil and affect the foundation.

4. Make a plan to perform routine maintenance and clean up. Clean up any brush or debris in the yard. Weeding and mulching is an inexpensive way to make a yard look great; it also provides health benefits to the plants. Consider planting annuals to add some color and impact to the yard. Learn about your plants and shrubs and how to best take care of them.

5. Check the soil. The soil is the foundation of everything in the yard — grass, plants and trees depend on healthy, well-balanced soil to flourish. Composting will improve the soil. Your lawn care professional or a DIY soil kit available at home improvement and lawn/garden centers can test the soil’s condition.

6. Study the PLAT map. The PLAT is a map, drawn to scale, showing the divisions of the piece of land; this is helpful for any restrictions

Get To Know Oregon, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival
is a not-for-profit professional theatre founded in 1935. Our season runs from February through early November, and we have three theatres: our two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and our flagship outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre, which opens in early June and runs through mid-October. We offer 11 different plays that include three or four by Shakespeare and seven by other classic writers, as well as modern and contemporary work and world premieres. When you visit you can see one or two plays or up to nine plays in one week!

What’s in a name? Why are we called the Oregon Shakespeare Festival?

•Oregon: We are located in Southern Oregon, in Ashland to be precise, and we are proud to be a part of the Oregon theatre community.
•Shakespeare: For many years we performed only Shakespearean productions. In fact, we had only one theatre, the Elizabethan Stage (three different buildings: 1935, 1947, 1959). With the opening of the Angus Bowmer Theatre in 1970 and the Black Swan in 1977 we were able to extend the length of our season into the spring and fall, and also expand our repertoire to include other classic playwrights, as well as contemporary and new work. The Thomas Theatre (formerly New Theatre) opened in 2002 to replace the Black Swan.

•Festival: OSF prides itself on offering a diversity of experiences that we hope feels like a Festival event. Once you’re on campus, particularly in the summer, you can experience not only a number of plays, but also backstage tours, park talks, lectures, classes, workshops, pre- and post-show conversations, a free Green Show before the evening shows from June through October. These are all offered to enhance your play-going experience.

We are located in Southern Oregon, in Ashland to be precise, and we are proud to be a part of the Oregon theatre community.

What else should I know about OSF if I want to come?

OSF invites and welcomes everyone. We believe the inclusion of diverse people, ideas, cultures and traditions enriches both our insights into the work we present on stage and our relationships with each other. We are committed to diversity in all areas of our work and in our audiences. To learn more about some of our programs designed to reach out to diverse audiences check out our Cultural Connections section.

You can learn more about what to expect when you visit Ashland and OSF here. You’ll find information about the theatres, attire, parking, and weather.
