At some point I am going to collect my thoughts and really go in to detail about my experience building. I will say this forum was beyond helpful, and a great reliever of stress.

OK, right on schedule, according to the forecasts, winter, sort of, came back. Several inches of snow, but also a half inch of rain which we wish was snow. Christmas is next week and we need skiing!

But Sandra and I took advantage of the several days of good weather while it was around. She finished the staining yesterday of all the outdoor beams, joists and posts! One thing on the house that is finished!

I was able to finish scratch coat on the stairwell and part of the wainscot of the third level to nearly finish that. Starting to break the stark whiteness of the building.

I was starting to put the door hardware on the doors yesterday, but got sidetracked, and I wasn't going to try today with winter blowing through. Instead I plowed the driveway and then began to look at running the service entry cable. It runs from the main breaker panels in the garage to the subpanels of the second and third levels. Once that is in, I can set a few outlets on each floor and quit running extension cords from the garage. Yeah, I know I was happy to quit running them from the meter and switch to the garage, but getting power to each floor is even better!

Just looking at the weather, 10" by the morning! Yeah! Maybe a short day and make a few runs down the mountain? ;-)

All of the staining done! Yeah!
Roll of service entry cable I need to pull from each subpanel to the main breaker panels
Kerosene heater I'll use once I get the ceilings that are open to the trusses, closed with plastic sheeting. Fired it up today to make sure it works and it did.
