Richard Waterman, a finish carpenter from Pittsfield submitted a bid to install basement baseboard, door casings, three doors, barn door hardware, ceiling hatch, sheetrock cover for wall gas line and box for floor propane line. labor & materials=$4,310. Mike expressed concern that the estimate did not include sheetrocking the walls and ceiling of the back staircase and covering the foamed wall opposite the oil tank as required by the fire marshall as a condition of securing an occupancy permit. Ann said Richard doesn’t do that kind of work and didn’t want to provide an estimate. The committee will reach out to other contractors for estimates on this work once Herb discusses with the Fire Marshall any other alternatives to creating a firewall in that area. Mike moved to accept the estimate and hire Waterman. Ray Seconded. All in Favor.
