Does anyone else feel the need to hurry things along before winter sets in?

You're telling me. I haven't even started yet and I'm hoping to race the Utah winter to get to dry-in. I should be OK though, maybe a rainstorm or two at most.

Hi Rachal,

Thankfully, we're past that stage. We broke ground just about exactly a year ago.  We got the foundation dug, and everything closed in just a little too late to completely miss the winter.  My son and I were doing the structured wiring inside the house in below zero temperatures--even a 180,000 BTU heater wasn't enough to raise the temperature by more than a degree or two. We gave up when the inside temperature dropped to 11 below zero.  Ah the good old days :)

Jeff

Oh yeah.

We're trying to get the exterior painted while there's still any sun at all in the pacific northwest. It's been dry, but our painter was out of town. Now he's returned, and it's supposed to rain all week. :(

Asside from that, we're really crunched. Our construction loan is up on Nov 30, so we need to get done. We're running out to the last of money, and running out of time, and there's soooooo much yet to do.

Yeah, it's stress time, in more ways than one!

-Ric

Sheetrock is up. Today there is a chance of showers. I haven't sealed my vent pipes or covered my vents.

I'm also worried about my wood floor that is outside. It's covered, but I feel the need to hurry with the walls so that I can get it inside!

Hurry, hurry, hurry.

Leaving that hardwood outside is a bad thing, especially if there's rain. You need to get that inside ASAP.

I will start moving it tomorrow. Hurry, hurry, hurry. At least it doesn't cost money to move the flooring! LOL.

Rachal,

There have been some exceptionally good threads recently about moisture content in wood floors, and how to properly condition them to prevent dimensional instability, warping, shrinking, etc. I highly recommend you read those threads. It sounds like conditioning your wood floors after their weather exposure could prove to be critical on your project.

Honestly, this is something I didn't realize myself until others shared their expertise on the subject here on this website. I, for one, REALLY appreciate everything everyone on here have been teaching me through documenting their experiences.

regards,

Grant
