I am very glad that I found your book on Amazon and subsequently your website. I have wanted to manage my home construction for some time. I had always felt like I had about 60% of the information that I thought that I needed to be successful. Now my wife is actually believing that we can do this.

The crews made good progress today and got most of the curtain wall stacked.  Colleen helped with a lot of "go-fer" activities combined with doing some digging for the foundation drain, and there were many consultations with Builder Dale and poring over of the plans. All of this is a Good Thing, of course--better to get it right than not!

We're a bit worried with the weather though--there's a possible front moving in on Friday.  Depending on the weather reports tomorrow, we might decide to move up the pour for the curtain wall, if that's doable.

Not much else to add at this point, so just eyeball the pics and enjoy!

Dang this is fun!

The curtain wall, looking down the length in the front of the house towards the living room.
Block scattered all over the place...
These blocks are still all on their pallets, stacked near the apartment garage.
The palettes are bulky, but obviously not terribly heavy...
...though it doesn't hurt to have help!
Standing at the corner of the living room, looking down toward the master bedroom.
Good progress being made. The footer behind the crew (without any block yet) is the divider between the apartment and the garage.
Taken at the end of the day, the curtain walls are nearly done.
Colleen loaded up the truck with the cardboard from the pallets. It's all headed for the recycling center.
For lunch the crew threw rebar over the fire and grilled up some steaks! I'd not seen this before, but it's definitely innovative.
