    Lower level floor is poured, as are footers and columns for deck posts and entrance awning. Timing was perfect, as it was nice and sunny on saturday. Sunday we woke up to 6" of snow that didn't stop until 3am...

    Awesome. You going to have a roof on it before winter settles in? I can think of nothing more fun than tinkering inside my new garage when it gets cold outside.

    roof will be on by mid january.... but that doesn't mean anything for winter around here. A few years ago I laid sod at the end of january, and then the next day got 18" of snow. I won't get to tinker much in the garage this winter, but that is ok, because i'm hoping for a good ski season :)

    project is going to be completed between march and april hopefully.

    sewer line is done and backfilled. I tried to get him to tear out the stumps while he was right there, but he wasn't having it...

    welding is about 3/5 of the way there. They only had 650 spot welds for the steel decking!

    engineer is coming out today to check things off. City is coming out tomorrow to sign off, and the concrete truck comes on saturday!

    Decking all welded up, all 800 screws are put in. Engineering has signed off, the city came by and told us that it all looked good.
    Forms built and mesh laid down over the vulcraft decking.

    The concrete guy told me that if I covered and uncovered the slab during the holidays, that he would trade me some of the industrial sealer he normally tells people to buy. I sealed it all up on sunday while it was 55º. About 3 hours later, it snowed and got down to -2º.

    Framing of the lower level should be happening the rest of this week, and the upper level stuff is going to be the week after.

    we had a few issues with the architectural drawings calling for both an 8' door and a 7' door (when you added up all of the measurements). Needless to say, that was going to cause an issue, so fortunately we were able to just add a food to the walls and call it good. We finalized our colors for the siding (*darker) and the trim & beams (lighter wood). The cedar siding is actually wirebrushed, then burned, then stained.

    we have 4 walls. Trusses were supposed to go up today, but they didn't really feel like walking around in the snow. Hopefully they are framing up some of the lower interior walls. Now that its built, it doesn't look big enough :) (i mean, it looks tall enough...)

    For the vertical siding. I think they went a little overkill. It could have been 24", not 12

    Is there not sheathing/plywood under the siding?

    There is, but since it is 3/4" cedar they wanted to ensure that they were able to get good purchase, and with the 8" boards, they would have screws just going into the sheathing and not the studs. Wind loads are pretty high around here, so they went a little overkill.

    Screwed on siding? Holy cow! Here it’s applied with ring shank nails.

    Wouldn’t clapboard (horizontal) cedar or Hardy plank been easier on a studded wall? I just covered old vertical 1x12 ship lapped siding on my barn (timber frame) with cedar clapboards, 6” with 4” reveal, and I really like the look.

    Just talked to the framers. It is going to be ring shank nails. We really liked the vertical look, since we wanted it to be very different from our house.

    I picked up my apt level cabinets yesterday, since we found some that were a really good deal at the local ReStore. ended up with 14 cabinets, but only needed 6. I guess I will have to figure out what to do with them!

    I picked up a range hood, but it is for an island, not a wall, so I guess its going back!

    here's a layout of the living space and kitchen

    You’ll find good use for them, if you own a basement or garage. Nothing beats a kitchenette corner in the basement with cupboards and counter, for reloading shotgun shells, electronics projects, etc. I also have kitchen cupboards and counter in the garage for extra storage and work space, separate from the heavy and dirty stuff in the detached shop.
