Well, monsoon season, which generally arrives at the beginning of July, had held off until this week. While the rain is welcome from a general perspective, it has been playing havoc with building. Normally monsoons in the southwest mean decent weather until around mid-afternoon when the skies open up for 30 minutes and then move on. But that 30 minutes kills the rest of the day's work and makes for sloppy conditions.


The framing crew set and leveled the sole plate and started laying out and setting the floor trusses. As for the last floor, we are running plumbing and HVAC ducts through the trusses and thus must lay in pipe and ducts as the trusses are set. Making sure I have everything in there before they are all in is extremely important. 

With Howard's help today, we finally finished the waterproofing and water screen. Backfilling can proceed for all except where a retaining wall sits against the front wall at one corner. And with his help we got the basement section of the elevator shaft finished. Hopefully we can get the second level shaft done before he leaves later this week.

Framer Jason hauling a load of floor trusses up the ski slope. Really the only way to get them up to the level we are at.
Skytrak following the load of trusses up so it can offload them
Second set of trusses (for the third floor) being set today. As Concrete John held dimensions better during the pour, they are slipping right in as they should.
