I'm a newby in the building process (did get The Owner-Builder Book though!) and would appreciate as much advice as I can get at this stage. Thanks a lot. This is a great discussion site. I learned a lot in just an hour of reading.

I know I said that the electric was going to be done a week or so ago, for the umpteenth time. And it truly is very close, but I keep finding things that I hadn't thought of that need to get done.  But the elevator power is in, a line has been run for the septic pump, and I have been going through and finding wires that haven't been fully stapled down. The lines for the hot tubs are run through the walls and the GFCI disconnects for them have been set.  When the inspector was here last week, he confirmed that the outside lights and receptacles (boxes) had to be set for the rough in.  This is different than other places I've built before.  So --- that has slowly been taking place.  Again, with ICFs, it is a real pain to get them installed.  Cutting out foam, figuring a way to attach them, a pain and takes time when there are a total of 20 or more.  


And then! I get pulled off for other things that need to get in for the stucco guys or the drywall guys.  A lot of new holes need to be cut on the main level for the range hood, make up air for the hood, the fresh air vent system, the baths, like now, because the stucco guys are ready to work in the area.  Spent much of the day getting a couple of outside hose bibs in and connected so the drywall tapers and the stucco guys have water.  All of these things need to get done, but they keep getting in the way of me working on the electric and plumbing! 

Oh well, as long as we keep making progress.

Sandra has been staining the last few days.  We have a bunch of post material for the decks and the inside of the garage doors needed to be done as well.  A job to keep her off the ladders for a few days.

The stairwell was taped today.  A massive amount of scaffolding went into it to make it to the top.  They are taking the rest of the week off due to the Easter holiday and will be back on Monday.  Sandra is chomping at the bit to get it painted, but will have to wait.

Stucco guys showed up today and began lathing.  It'll take a couple weeks for that to get done, but it's great to start seeing a change to the outside.
