Dawn emailed us : Hi Helen, please call Shannon at Thompson Gas 571-292-3044 and schedule delivery of your propane for next Tue or Wed. Please ask that they set the tank as close to the garage possible but not on the garage slab.
I called Shannon and also emailed her.
Update: Shannon replied on 10/29/15 and confirmed: “I have added it onto our service schedule for November 3rd.”
According to Dennis’ email:
The roof seal at pipes was done this morning. The concrete porch is pouring today. Everything is moving along on schedule. We will be begin the inspection process on your home Thursday . this process takes a few days we will be looking to do a pre-drywall meeting with you next week. Dawn will touch base with you early in the week as we get closer and can pinpoint that date accurately.
Q: I remember Dennis mentioned that the front porch step concrete pouring would happen last week. The weather is getting cold. I just checked the weather. We wouldn’t have another frozen weather in next few days. Hope the concrete can be poured soon, so the cold weather won’t damage the wet concrete.
A: Waiting on front door to be delivered & installed, then stoop will be poured
Q: Also, how is the progress of the electricity installation? Do we need to do anything to call electricity company? We already got the 400A meter base. Hope the after frame stage can be as fast as well. With the Thanksgiving in November and Christmas in December. We hope we can get things done as early as possible.
A: Once the meter base has been inspected by the county, I’ll notify you to contact Dominion to inform them of such
Q: We already contact the Propane company. What is the detail requirement of propane? 100 gallons?
A: Yes 100 gallon tank – I’ll let you know when to schedule delivery
Q: I also heard from a friend in construction business to warn me that don’t put on carpet and hardwood floor if the polywood still contains some moisture. Many new building’s polywood got wet in rain and some moisture still kept in polywood, and then the hardwood and carpet were put on. The floor would have problem within 2 – 3 years. Hope the propane can dry the polywood as well.
A: Flooring contractor measures humidity before hardwood installation as they are the ones that have to warranty it – they wouldn’t install it if it was going to affect the hardwood/warranty
Q: Also, would you please provide us some recommendation about the drive way contractors and grass sod contractors?

I called Thompson Gas today to set up the account. The call was transferred to Shannon. She seemed very familiar with NDI. She said since this is a temporarily set up, there will be no set up fee. We just need to open the account and call them in one week advanced to schedule the installation.
The cost would be $2.549 per gallon. The delivery fee would be $9.98 + $3.99 = $13.97. As NDI requested, they will deliver 100 gallon propane. They will not refund if there are left over. If 100 gallon propane is not enough, we can call for refill. The minimum refill is 50 gallon.
