We've been making good progress on the electric.  All of the runs on the second level were finished today, and Sandra has cut on and foamed nearly all of the receptacle boxes into the ICFs on both the second and third floors. Only, a few short runs on the third floor to do, but I need to finally finish the elevator shaft on that floor in order to do that.  I spent yesterday working on that, but have a bit more to do.  And I need to set the boxes for the lights in the great room.  That's going to take setting up scaffolding to get up to the 20' height. That's going to be a bit of a pain and take some time.  Ugh.

Not pretty, but will trim the orange foam before sheetrock goes on. When working with ICFs, you have to cut out the foam to run the electric and set boxes. It's a royal pain. The biggest issue is the depth of the foam that most manufacturers use is 2 1/2" to 2 5/8". Most electric boxes are deeper than that. Close but deeper. Have to search for boxes that fit best and then sometimes still have to chisel out of concrete beyond to get the box to fit. The flap on the box is screwed to a plastic web that is inbedded in the foam. Wires are inserted, you spray foam box to the wall. Turns out rock solid in the end. But still a pain.
