I was browsing websites and trying to determine where to buy owner-builder books. When I saw that you gave away free copies of your books for financial need, I knew this was the right place to buy.

It was a lot easier when all I had to do was coordinate Concrete John and Framer Jason and order floor trusses. Now all I have to do coordinate deliveries of trusses, sips, glulams etc etc - all of which are arriving it seems daily. The curved beams were unloaded first thing this morning. After lunch all but two of the glulams for the porches arrived. In the meantime, I went done to pick up a couple of pallets of stone veneer. We don't have enough space to bring up the 20 some pallets even if they do stack.

Sandra was going to start running the stone, but we hit a wall (pun intended). We needed a wet saw to cut the inside corners as the stone is irregular and can't simply be woven at the corners. Trouble is one tile saw we left in Nashville so the Mutton Busting kids could finish a project, and our other one is 4 miles away, but buried deep inside the storage unit. So Sandra drove an hour and a half to the nearest Lowe's to pick up another one. A bit crazy, but what can you do? We have to get started on stone. The nights are hard freezes. It just going to get colder. 19F yesterday morning, but 72 in the afternoon. That's what living with little humidity can give you!

So I have been slowly trying to frame the garage doors. First attach plywood to the metal brackets that were embedded on the foam surface of the door opening as concrete was poured. Then attach Doug Fir 2x to the plywood and shim to make plumb and level. Slow work as the lengths are long, I'm working by myself and I'm having to set ledgers to hold ends up while lift and set the other end. But they are getting done. The Sikens stain system I ordered for the doors should arrive by the weekend, so we can begin finishing them and eventually install them.

Excavator got one of his guys up today to backfill the most critical section. I did have the heart to heart, gave him a list of things that need to be finished in order, and a deadline of October 15. We'll see if he holds to it.

Framing crew continued trimming out the roof trusses. He's going to hold off on sheathing until the decorative trusses arrive. A lot of intertwined things here.

If you look closely you can see a framer setting 6x6" extending past the last truss. This will attach to the big decorative timber truss when they arrive and get set.
