Unfortunately I did not find your book in time for that house but we have it for the next one. It is a great book, full of useful information. Lots of it seems like common sense after you read it, but I did not have the common sense to think of it before I read it.

Did I ever say that I hate running plumbing?  It just takes me forever to run the waste lines.  Like yesterday, it took me four hours, yes it seems impossible, but four hours to run drain line in the master bath.  Wouldn't have taken so long if I had given myself a bit more room to run the vent line off of it. But I didn't and it took many trips up a level to cut pipe, adjusting the 3" line it connected to, etc etc.  By contrast though, the shower line only took less than half that time as it was downslope further and had more room. But still, you can see that this is a slow, slow process. And while the truss joists allow plenty of openings to run plumbing, they also have lots of chords that get in the way, especially since waste connections are made through wyes, not tees. That 45 degree angle makes layout more difficult to not interfere with a chord somewhere along the run.


Timbers for the stairs were delivered yesterday.  I'll get them covered up today as it will be a while before they are built.  And an old friend from a previous life came by and took pics with his drone.  It gives a different view on the project from what we normally see.

The 4 x 12's and some of the 8x8's for constructing the stairs. The 4x12's will be used for the stringers and the steps. Should be a nice massive statement.
