Overall this is a great site for discussing the owner-builder process, and it has been a great asset to me in the building of my home. Thanks to everyone who contributes directly and indirectly to keeping this site interesting and helpful.

Sandra followed up again on the fooring today.  Was supposed to be here several weeks ago.  Had been told there was a glitch earlier, but this was getting way behind.  Not to go into details, but the mill canceled the order as it was too big (huh?!) and the supplier had to find another. Weird.  So now it won’t ship until after Christmas. A serious issue.  The supplier is trying to contact local cartage so that it may have a chance to get up the mountain once snow finally hits.


Cabinets are scheduled to ship Friday, also a month behind. We’ll see if they hold to their promise.  If they do, we have a chance we could get them before Christmas, and the weather is expected to stay good until then.

In anticipation of the shipments, Sandra and I cleaned out much of the garage over the weekend.  Got it into the storeroom, freeing up a bunch of space.  Now I need to work on my side, more from just an organizational point rather than space.

And on another negative note, the paint we ordered from Amazon to do the corrugated ceiling material, has fallen into the great abyss. What was to arrive in two days ha turned into two weeks and only one of 18 items  has made it. Items have never made it to the carriers, those that did either ended up getting lost or leaked and were discarded by the carrier. A reorder on one was found to be lost yesterday after making it to Albuquerque.  Between Amazon and Fed Ex the order has been a disaster. I’ll mke one last call to Fed Ex this morning to we if they found the Albuquerque items and if not, cancel the rest of the order and buy through someone else. 

I’ve got all but one of the showers ready for pan inspection.  The last I should finish tomorrow.  Had to snake a line into a shower for the water softener drain, which wasn’t part of the original plan.  The softener drain has to be separated with an air gap and not tied directly into the sewer.  Most often it’s done in a floor drain or to a outdoor pit, but I have neither available, (bedrock and very cold temps in winter) so there will be a pipe into the shower at a low level to be as unobtrusive as possible. Get that finished and call for the pan inspection and we can start tile.

Still contemplating how to get the 700 lb stove onto the third floor when it’s sitting on a broken pallet.  Sandra has an idea to make a large 4-wheel dolly using large casters.  Still have to figure how to lift it onto it though.  

Got toilets! The port-a-can was removed Friday which put a priority on it.  So the two we ordered are set and working.  Will order the others after the first of the year.

Dad - Cabinets are not a month behind.  We were quote 3 weeks and ordered Nov 11th or so.  So at most, the leadtime was off by 2 weeks - which is because of Thanksgiving holiday.
