We visited our friends' new home that they are moving into. They are owner-builders, and told us that before we did anything else, we had to go buy this book and join the O-B community. So here we are.

I made some excellent progress once I got the rather complicated main-house loops done a few days ago.

In large part this was because this "wing" of the house is much simpler than many other areas have been. There are only three zones in this area (the smallest of all the manifolds in Tanglewood), and by happy coincidence they lined up well with the major divisions at this end of the house--the master bathroom, the master bedroom, and the hall-and-utility area that links the main house with all of this. The only complications in the layout were the floor penetrations (which I'm getting pretty good at avoiding) and the bullet-nose shape at the end of the house in the bathroom, but that was easily solved with a serpentine loop that skirts the edge, then gradually expands in a back-and-forth series of loops before running back to the manifold.  The bedroom and hall areas were dead simple, since they're basically just big rectangles, with only a single largish penetration near the picture window where the planter will be.

Taking a lesson from the layout work in the main area, I put down the Send lines of all three loops at the start--this allowed me to confirm the layout I'd planned, plus make minor adjustments for spacing between the future Send and Return lines for all of the loops. Once I had those in place, things went very quickly.

Next up--the garage! Once that's done, we can get the first-floor pour scheduled.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!! :)

Behold the master bedroom zones! All nice and neat and tidy; I'm pretty proud of my work here. The manifold feeding this area is on the middle right.
The three-zone manifold all ready for hookups.
Another shot of the area. You can see the main supply lines running towards the master bathroom on the right-hand side.
