I did my first hands-on work on the house yesterday. I had to pull the shear sheathing off the deck support pillars/columns to gain access to the hollow cavity inside it. I then drilled 3.5" holes in four locations on the view deck. I inserted 3" drain pipe inside the hollow columns to provide drainage for the deck. The initial idea was to use scuppers to drain the deck, but the deck height is 21' above the ground. Water falling from that height would dig a nice-sized hole into the ground. With the drain pipe, the flow and end location of the water will be controlled. I had to strap the pipe in three locations to make sure it didn't come loose in a heavy rain. The framers will need to come back to build crickets on the deck to direct the flow to the drain pipe inlets.

The roofers dried in the roof and the stucco crew is 70% done lathing the outside of the house. Just waiting on the low-voltage sub to finish up and for the roofer to load the roof with tile so I can call for inspection.

My first delay due to materials being unavailable will stop all work for at least a week. The roofing wholesaler is low on the tile I selected and has enough tile for the job, but the tile is from two different production runs. So the roofer and I will wait for a NEW production run of tile to be produced, so all my tile will be from the same production run, and no issues and tile matching will be encountered...
