Concrete John came back with his crew on Monday to finish setting up, expecting to pour on Wednesday.  I didn't think he had a snowball's chance to make that deadline, with so much work to finish, including building a retaining wall that bridged the gap between the house and the steep rock wall that still remained from the excavation.  But to my amazement, they got it ready and poured on time!


While most of the crew went back to Santa Fe, two stayed to remove forms from the walls and begin cleaning up.  Extra forms, rebar, etc were packed up.  They'll be finished in the morning and that phase of the project, in some ways the major part of the project, will be over.  With two months of a "two weeks on, one week off" schedule, I think they were glad to finish the project.  

With the second level framed, Sandra and I spent a little time yesterday roughly marking the rooms out on the third level just to see how they feel.  We decided on some minor changes before darkness set in.  Tomorrow we will go ahead and chalk-line the walls to start the framing.  Monday the floor trusses for the small 4th level will arrive and the framer can begin framing the final level.  

I ordered roof trusses today. The curved beams will ship Sept 9, and the SIP panels for the curved section ship Sept 15. I've got to order the decorative trusses very soon.  I had been waiting until the foundations for the supports had been poured, to get the final dimensions.  As this happened yesterday during the concrete pour, I can now get that to the timber truss company and get them ordered. And with those support dimensions, I ordered the glulam beams for the porches.  The windows ship tomorrow and will arrive early next week.  A lot of things going on!
