The info that I got from the bank seemed to be consistent with the advice given in The Owner-Builder Book, which if you have not read stop everything and read it closely.

With the framer done, the roofer not around, the electrician not there and the stone guys gone, it's extremely peaceful at the site. The only real noise is the diesel engine of the SkyTrak when cranked up to move or lift. Sandra was periodically taking off from her deck staining to lift me into position while I was attaching lath and scratch coat to the front of the stairwell. What about the framer turned stone mason? Well funny thing after one day, he didn't bother to show up or call. So another bites the dust. It's not my management. I am a very hands-off fellow. Probably too hands-off on jobs like this. It's the type of people that basically work day-to-day. Or should I say sometimes they work. No ambition. I just don't understand that mentality. So - while there are a ton of other things I should be doing, I'm trying to knock as much of this out while we have a few more days of decent temps. I got lath run up through the second floor on the front and sides and scratch coat on about 3/4 of it. I'm going to finish that off tomorrow and try to get the front of the third floor lathed and scratched.

We actually took the day off yesterday as it was cold, and went to Santa Fe. Hit Trader Joe's and Home Depot while there. Picked up a bunch of electrical boxes as we should be able to start that sometime in December - if we get the other things caught up, doors, garage doors, service feed into the house, etc.
