Thank you for giving owner-builders a platform to share our experiences from. I’ve gotten several ideas from posts on your website. For instance, I’d never heard of PEX before running across mention of it on ownerbuilderbook.com; afterward, I researched it and decided to use it in my home. You are doing us all a great service.

We’ve hired the artistic fellow (Ray) who helped with the corrugated ceiling to do the fireplace.  We’ve seen some of the work he has done on a couple others and think his work will come out as something special.  Sandra had the idea of using a couple of tree trunks to support the mantel, but Ray took it a step further to find hundred year old lightning-struck pitch wood trunks out in the forest.  He’ll start construction on it tomorrow.


I’m finishing the last of the tile floor work with getting the main level ski room done. That’ll be done tomorrow.  I’ve hired the stone guy to come in and tile the master and the fourth floor showers.  Looking at the scope of work and our timeline to get in, Sandra convinced me to hire more work out.  Those showers need to get done before the wood floors go down in those baths, and the floors need to go down before the tubs get set.  So by the time I’m ready to start the floors, showers will be done.  And lord knows I have plenty to keep me busy.

Set the lights onto the corrugated ceiling today, and it was an easier job than expected except for the dozens of trips up and down the scaffolding!  Also set the ceiling fan on the great room. As soon as I do one more small job in there, I’ll take down the scaffolding and organize the area so we can start bringing up some flooring to acclimate.

Tile started. Will finish tomorrow so the saw can be free for the stone guy to tile.
