My husband and I have been planning our log home for over two years now, reading numerous books, articles, speaking with lots of people, etc., and your book is by far the best we have read.

Well, this is a bit of a kick in the head.

Since my Saturday update, we've been experiencing enormously powerful winds. Up and down the Front Range, out on the plains, in the foothills--doesn't matter where you are, the winds are fierce. These are some of the worst I've seen in years--and they're making it far too dangerous for the crew to be working on Tanglewood!

And honestly that makes perfect sense. I'm pretty sure that standing on top of a three-story, steeply-sloped roof holding a big piece of plywood is not a terribly healthy idea, so it's hard to blame the crew for standing down these past couple of days. These are also the same guys who would install some of the larger windows which would function similarly to large slabs of wood with the added benefit of being even heavier, so that's not happening either.*

Fair enough... can't fault them for the weather. Hopefully things will ramp down a bit tomorrow and maybe they can get up there the rest of this week.

Gotta love Colorado weather!

* On the other hand, if I were putting in a windmill, I'd probably be moaning about it being shut down with these high wind speeds. It's a little-known fact that most small (home-sized) windmills have a fairly narrow operating range--too slow and they just don't generate much useful power, too fast and they shut down so they aren't damaged. Yucky situation.
