Once I had the other half of the clubhouse kitchen framed up (see the revised floor plan), I began mounting electrical boxes according to the board-approved clubhouse electrical plan that I had drawn (a Manitoba Hydro electrician had vetted the plan and deemed it "really well" drawn). Despite this positive vetting, I was properly assured by CJ Electric Ltd. of Beausejour, Manitoba that they would do all of their wiring fully to code regardless of what may or may not have appeared on the electrical plan (some "on the go" changes were in fact made as work progressed). I again acted as a labourer alongside the electricians. I drilled studs, pulled and stapled wires, mounted additional boxes and did whatever else I was asked to do. I estimated that I saved members about $900 by doing the work that an electrician's helper would normally have done. After the wiring had been inspected and passed, we began doing plumbing rough ins. I meticulously shopped numerous retailers in both Winnipeg and Selkirk to get the best prices possible on all the materials needed for the clubhouse plumbing. I was happy to once again assist the club's "resident plumber" on this project. Among other things, he asked me to do all of the plumbing beneath the floor in the pit that we had dug for that purpose. He patiently taught me what I needed to know in order to position, fit and glue all the ABS wastewater pipes, and to position, fit and solder all the water supply pipes. Our collaboration over the course of several days saved members a substantial amount money on plumbing costs!
