Drywall guys finished the stairwell last evening with a third coat and sanding.  Yes things can dry quite rapidly here in the Southwest. So Sandra can go ahead and prime the walls.  We'll use the airless sprayer to speed things along.  Meanwhile the stucco netting is proceeding, with the fellows finished with the ICF portion and onto the framed section, adding first a 2" layer of R value 10 foam board.  With R19 fiberglass in the wall, this'll end with a total wall value of about R26.  I know this doesn't quite look correct but the math has to take into account the low R value of the studs for their part of the wall construction.  But R26 is a while lot better than the real R14 of the standardly framed 2x6 wall with fiberglass only.


I'm back on plumbing trying to finish off the drain lines before proceeding to the vents. I'm in better spirits about it having taken the hiatus of a couple weeks - and having more vertical space to set things in.

Landscaper started a project Monday, using some of the large stone we have from the excavation to build walls along one side in the front. His main work will come later this summer after the septic has been installed.

Retaining wall that the landscaper is creating to eliminate the sloughing of the hill cut.
Installing the foam over the framed section. Had to use the Skytrak as the roofing is in the way of where the scaffolding would be.
