The framers finished the last part of the stairs today.  We still have railings to install once we figure how we want to do them, but they are fully functional to the 4th floor.  Over the weekend I  worked on finishing running PEX water lines.  They are all in for each fixture, but I still need to fasten them and create the stub outs.  And I need to set the PRVs at the second and third level to drop the pressure.  I spent the day Friday installing the last of the outdoor freeze-proof spigots.  These were tricky as they were in the living section walls and not the garage. I had to get the length correct so that I could bury the water line within the foam, using soldered copper fittings.  Tight, but all 5 went well without any leaks.


Speaking of leaks, after a day of prepping shower and bath drain stubouts throughout the house, and finishing the vent connections in the attics, I finally did a test of one floor's drains.  All went well with the exception of one side of one fitting where I had forgotten to glue the joint. So after emptying the water into a 32 gallon trash can, I repaired it and will go on to test the other two floors. And oh by the way, the volume of 90 feet of 4" line is way over 32 gallons.  Ask me how I know.  At least the garage floor is much cleaner now.

Just a slope side shot of the house from an angle I hadn't taken from before. Stone and brown coat are on. Waiting for the color coat.
A shot of the stairs. No real good way to shoot and capture the true essence of the height and massiveness.
