I've gotten a lot out of this site, so I thought I'd create a journal to show progress and give a bit back.

I'm getting peeved at the roofers as this thing drags out.  They worked three days the first week, didn't work the second week as they were supposed to finish the job in Artesia after the holiday, but didn't. Left yesterday afternoon for Artesia after 2 1/2 days here. And while they are here, the first sprinkles of rain and they quit for the day.  Like yesterday, ten drops of rain, they quit and it didn't start raining for real until evening.  Arggggh! The one one thing that did happen this week was the long panels got curved yesterday. Finally!  So if they can get them up early next week, the excavator can begin work on fixing the issue with the pump tank and put in the septic.  Sheetrock is to begin next week, and we are going to have to work around the roofers lack of finishing, putting in rock where he has finished (4th floor) and areas of other floors directly below.  It'll take a while for the rock so hopefully the roofer can catch up.


Meanwhile, the heating ducts are still going in.  The guys are doing a good job, especially as it is all a tight fit in the floor trusses, especially considering the framer had reversed many of them.  Same issue I had with plumbing, except the ducts are a whole lot larger.  Fortunately, slope is not an issue like it is with plumbing.

I'm having to get involved in the duct work to some extent, cutting the couple of trusses where they needed to be, and making the stands for the furnaces.  Been running the bath vent lines where they will soon be covered by drywall, which has required reopening holes that I tried to create last year in the concrete wall when they poured, but got crushed from the weight of the concrete.  Nothing is easy on this job.

Got hold of the fellow who will sprayfoam the garage ceiling.  I told him a couple weeks ago I'd be ready, but he never ordered the material.  Glad I got hold of him again yesterday.  I hope that doesn't slow us down.  And I ordered three pallets of rock wool soundproofing from Home Depot two weeks ago.  It still hasn't shipped.  I need that in order to drywall the second floor.  All of these issues with subs and suppliers not holding to their timeline is driving me absolutely crazy.  I know I could not be a GC for a living.
