I guess it's because I've never attempted a project of this magnitude before, but there has been a tremendous amount of details that need to be flushed out before we start construction. Codes dept requires the plumbing, electrical and mechanical be designed prior to receiving a permit. For an A.D.D. guy like myself, that's a horrible thing to think about, but for a project of this size, it has turned out to be very beneficial. On smaller projects, I always just figured out stuff after the framing it in and by seat of the pants. But here, it is making me think in detail and come up with an acceptable layout on paper, which will translate into less waste, and quicker installation. So it is very good. 


Met with an electrician this week to get a price for rerunning a new service. 390 feet of line to the house and new disconnect is $2,600 in materials. That's about what it should be. Big dang wire. The local utility will meet him at the lot to see if it should be done differently.
Excavator will finally start next week. Snow last week has put him behind schedule. I'm glad we are starting when we are. I remember Steve from Tanglewood saying to never build in the winter! Now I see why when your not sitting in a nice flat subdivision.

Draftsman should have most of the drawings to us Monday. At least enough for the Architectural committee to review and approve. Should have most of the framing ones as well. All we will be lacking is the new foundation design. Working with the engineer on that.

Will begin to go out for bids on the trusses, and curved glulams next week. Sent the final window schedule back out for quotes yesterday. There is a lot of behind the scenes stuff!
