Mark, thank you for writing such a great book. I have bought many books to help me through my building process, but yours is the one I go back to the most. I'm on my second home now. It is so much easier the second time around. The first house was such a huge success. It cost us about $100/ft to build with top of the line details, and including a swimming pool (but not including land), and we sold it less than two years later for about $235/ft. We made several hundred thousand dollars profit on that one house! I think it's safe to say owner-building has changed my life. Thanks!

I should have electric inside the garage on Monday if the electrician can come back and energize the lines. I finished splicing the lines inside the junction box on Thursday, and today I finished running the lines to the breaker boxes inside the garage. Need to set some outlets and run wire to them. Also have maybe an hour inside the junction box to set some clamps and secure the wire bundles to it. Overall, I'm pleased with how it all turned out. From the main breakers, I need to run cables to the large sub-panels on levels two and three. It's from these two panels that the main sections of the house will be powered.

The garage door guy showed up yesterday to look at the one door that I've had put together, to see what is going on. He thinks that the wrong springs and cable drums were sent. He got on the phone with a supplier and based on size, weight and lift height, new parts were sized and ordered. It'll take a few weeks to get them in. Once that happens, they'll be installed and we'll see if that's the solution. If so, I'll get hold of the door company and see about them supplying the parts for the other two doors as well as giving me a refund on the new set. I'm not hopeful as they really didn't have any installation experience to give. They supply custom doors, ask someone else to supply the hardware. Argh!
