In what appears to be an unprecedented move, the builder has moved PCI forward to Wednesday morning.
In less than 36 hours I will have completed the PCI. Fingers crossed for…

That part must be outside the home I believe. They might be installing the pcd, or outside small box, on the other side of the wir wall?

So if you're on the road they wouldn't notice you taking a bit of time off for pci. Consider it transit time. ;)
