The book is great! But this site is an incredible resource for a first-time owner-builder like us. We have already been helped out by other posters here on insurance, specs, and planning. We have avoided two very important pitfalls regarding home package suppliers and sub bids. You are doing the owner-builders out there a great service! Keep up the good work.

Sandra made a trip to the nearest Lowes today to pick up more wire.  This is finally the end. That and a few miscellaneous electrical things that we again ran out of, like Romex clamps and cable staples.  We've gone through 700 staples - crazy to think of and why I keep running out of things.  I just can't imagine how much it takes.  


Spent half a day on the slopes as the weather was good. But came back, set up another level of scaffolding on the 3rd level and started to set boxes for the great room lights.  While up there, I also taped the seams of the SIP panels.  I had held off waiting to see if that section of the roof was truly dried in.  It seems to be, so I can get them taped with some unbelievable stickly 6" wide tape.  The purpose is to prevent humidity from getting through the seams, condensing under the outer skin and rotting over time.  I should get the other eight boxes set up tomorow morning and with luck, get them wired together.  
Spent yesterday setting switch boxes.  Will get back to that this weekend, but it's all coming together

While at Lowe's, Sandra picked up a truck load of PVC fittings.  Toilet flanges, a ton of 4" wyes, elbows, etc.  Yes, I'm getting ready to run the waste lines.  Trying to snake that through the floor joists- I'm not looking forward to that, but it does mean we are moving forward.  I should be able to begin that sometime next week.

3rd floor panel. I've got two more single breakers and one double to add. That pretty much uses it up.
scaffolding to reach the roof. While I'm setting electrical now, I also need it to put the tongue and grooved ceiling up at some point. So it'll stay a while
A typical switch box installation. Not pretty, but solid once the foam sets. Once the inspector oks the depth of the wire, we'll fill the wire chases with foam and get flush with the ICF surface
