Your site is helpful and an encouragement for all. Thank you so much for building it. :) You have no idea how helpful it has been already, and I am just in the very beginning stage of the building process.

So we are eight months into the build, starting in May of 2016 with the excavation. We are looking at getting the top two floors finished by Christmas of this new year. I think it's doable. But it also means putting in a fair amount of infrastructure on the middle level as well. This is because I pulled trade permits for the entire house. Additionally plumbing and heating ducts are installed in the floor joists of the second floor (ceiling of the garage). One of the requirements of getting an occupancy permit is to have the garage ceiling covered with 5/8" sheetrock. This means the plumbing drains and duct work for the second level need to be installed. So - I really need to do quite a bit more than just finish off the top two levels. :-(

We started the electric just before the holidays. My goal is to have wiring run for all floors in the next three weeks. It's a lot to do, but I think we can get it done. We've gotten can lights installed and wired in the master, the closet and the ski room. We've gotten wiring run for receptacles in the same rooms. I'll run everything for the master bath and half bath tomorrow and start running cans in the fourth floor while Sandra sets receptacles. We should have that wired in a couple days. Then back to the main level to figure out switches for the kitchen and stairway lights, and for the lights in the great room (that won't get installed until spring when the roof is on and the T&G ceiling is installed). These are all three-way and four-way circuits and the stairs will be especially "interesting" as there are four levels. Just how many levels do you turn on with each switch? Maybe just one level at a time might way to do it. But then, do you have a four gang switch box at each level and have the ability to access all four levels from each floor? Things to think about.
