While the framers were working on the roof trusses, two deliveries came in today on long leads.  The first one was the SIPs.  The drivers actually got to town late last night and parked in the framer's yard.  We unloaded them in the morning, and at the yard as we won't need them for about three weeks.  There really isn't enough room up at the site. The second delivery was of the three garage doors.  They were packed into two plywood crates, each weighing about 1500 lbs! And they were long! One was 19' and the other 10'.  Try unloading those from a truck without a loading dock! This delivery also took place at the yard, but I am shuttling those up piece by piece after uncrating. 

The third delivery takes place tomorrow when the steel brackets for assembling the porch beams and posts arrive. And the last delivery takes place Monday when the curved glulams arrive from Oregon.  Will be waiting on the timber trusses to finish off the list but that'll be another two weeks.  In the meantime, the framer has plenty to do with setting rafters over the stairwell, constructing the porches and setting some of the windows. 
I am starting framing of the garage doorways. Would have been nice to have done that already, but - .
Sandra is going to try to tackle setting the stone veneer.  I was going to use the framers fellow that I had been using, but he is tied up with the framing crew for the foreseeable future.  The lath has been attached on a lot of surface area, and I am worried that degradation of the foam from sunlight, may cause issues.  With the lath in place, I can't go back and rasp those areas to clean up sun-damaged foam. And - it is only getting colder.  We can mortar for only so many weeks more!
