I'm a newby in the building process (did get The Owner-Builder Book though!) and would appreciate as much advice as I can get at this stage. Thanks a lot. This is a great discussion site. I learned a lot in just an hour of reading.

After so much cold the past couple weeks, which allowed the resort to make some decent snow, we have a warm spell starting yesterday and lasting through next week. Temps in the 40s and nighttime temps in the upper 20s to low 30s. This is not good for skiing, and now that I'm dried in, we certainly want the resort to do well for the ski season, and the kids are coming for Christmas.

On the other hand, given this warm weather, I'll take advantage of it and go back to either running stone or running more scratch coat. I'd prefer to do the latter, but need to attach more lath and my staple gun is in the shop as it has been for three weeks. Will try to borrow the framer's.

I got the driveway gate posts set in concrete yesterday. We now have to decide on a gate, what style, whether it'll be a single or double, whether we have it made locally or buy online.

Sandra went back to staining the decks yesterday. Man! There is a lot to stain!

Need to finish shimming the doors we put in the past week, so we can foam-seal them, getting closer to getting the place ready for a heater.

Door sills had to chiseled to get to proper height. Once there, we powder-nail a piece of composite deck board to the concrete for the door to sit on.
Side entry door. As you can see, using ICFs for construction presents challenges for door setting, and later, trimming out as the door has to set to the inside in order to swing open.
