Went four-wheeling with friends today. Great fall day at nearly 12,000 feet, but at one point I felt like I was out of retirement and working again. Every time I got cell reception, calls were coming in, text messages, voicemails, emails. All revolving on deliveries, directions, can we deliver on the weekend etc. But at this point, I certainly needed to take them. All of the items are on a critical path and need to stay on track. But it was a flashback to my previous life just nine months ago before I retired.

The framers spent the day placing the bracing and sheathing on the set of trusses they set yesterday. Monday they'll set the gable truss with its sheathing already in place. Early next week, they need to set rafters over the stairwell. While the curved glulams will arrive on Monday morning, setting those will have to wait until the side porch (two levels) needs to be constructed. The last curved beam sits on posts coming off that decking. Before the decking is set, backfill needs to be completed underneath it. Excavator was given instructions to accomplish that today and I was assured it would, but nothing happened. Got to have a heart to heart with him on Monday. It's at the point that the unfinished excavation projects will now begin to affect my and the framer's schedule. I can't let that happen. A touchy subject and Sandra's advice on handling the situation in the best manner will be really important.
