The framers got that last panels on the curved roof this morning. A bit difficult as there really was nowhere for them to stand and push it into place. The SkyTrak helped by extending out to push. They spent the rest of the day putting all the required screws in place, making sure the seams were dressed properly and attaching the sub fascia, in anticipation of the roofer coming next week.

I went about framing the space between the curved glulams and between the top of the wall and panel to start closing it up. Since the panels sit at an angle, and 14' up there, it all takes time. I hope to sheath them with 2" of foam and plywood over the weekend. Then it'll be onto the end wall that needs to be created to close off the space between the last interior glulam and the wall below it. While I'll work on that next week, the rest of the windows will be installed. They are big with four of them 6'x8', three 6'x7' and a smattering of others. It could take several days.

The excavator finally returned today with a small hammer and the repaired track hoe to carve out the trench for the electric line. It took them a half day to do 100 feet. Solid rock and they had to go down 2'. Electrician ordered cable today, I've ordered disconnects and assuming the inspection gets done early in the week and is approved, I can think about setting panels inside the house and quit running off loooong extension cords.

We are continuing to blessed with great weather (for building, not skiing) and hope it continues until the roof is on. All next week is looking good. We need a couple more actually. Can we get that lucky?

The panels are all on! You can see the space I need to fill in with a wall, underneath the glulam.
