Over the past week we've continued to redesign and redesign and did I say - redesign? We walked the site over the weekend and find that it makes more sense to put the ski/mud room of the middle (rental) level on the opposite side of the house as the slope there allows easier access. And we thought about the obstruction that placing the main stairway on the view side would cause. (The stairwell is nearly all outside the main envelope of the house. So all the work Sandra had done on the interior layout of all three floors had to be redone.

While she was doing that, I've been reviewing the windows for size, placement and type (fixed, casement, awning). Aiming for view, light and ventilation while also trying to minimize overall cost. Ha! That last is a bit of a joke! With 38 triple-pane windows, cost will not be cheap. But the list is done and ready to go out to a couple manufacturers for quotes.

Visited the resort's legal counsel last week to confirm that I can put the septic drain field in the ingress egress easement, which he confirmed. Today, met with the architectural committee to run by the plans as they currently exist, to ensure I wasn't headed done the wrong path. They had several questions, which were answered, and they heartily liked what they saw. Just wanted to do this before the draftsman gets started.

One thing I saw as we walked the property last weekend, was that there will be a considerable amount of excavation. And the rock doesn't look as friable as I remembered it. It may require a considerable amount of blasting to remove it. An unforeseen issue and expense.

Been talking to an ICF dealer in Colorado Springs for details on hanging floor trusses and to get an updated cost on the ICFs. 

Will get the new layouts over to the draftsman tomorrow so he can start as soon as he gets his current job done.

Lots of irons in the fire.
