I want to say is that if you do plow through old posts, that this forum and That Home Site has been the most useful to me - but it goes both ways - post questions and answers (things you have read etc..) to get relevant topics going. I have also met another O-B through the Connections on this website and they are building locally and we have hit it off and are sharing all our info - that has been really applicable and fun to experience the same issues, 'be in the same boat' so to speak.

The second floor walls were poured on Thursday and all went pretty well. One small bulge at a window, but that shouldn't be a problem. The biggest thing was the penetrations had issues. I used duct pipe for the 6" and 8" ones and unfortunately the force of the pumped concrete tended to crush them at least partially. I'll have to go in with a hammer chisel and open them up. The walls were straight, the distances were held, and the framer's crew should have no issues in setting the floor trusses this coming week.


Monday, I need to get on a couple more rolls of waterproofing, and what is left of the water screen so the excavator can finish backfilling the back wall. Framer needs this done to access the second floor with the Skytrak to lift the trusses in place. I still don't think there is enough dirt up on top to do everything we want, but we'll see where we end up this week.

The windows should arrive in the next couple of weeks. I need to check on them. We can actually begin setting some of them but will need help getting them off the truck. The large ones weigh in at around 400 pounds. We have the Skytrak to help us but I'm sure it will be a struggle requiring a few people.
