Hey all,
I went to the site today to meet with our GC, Cary Dunn from BackCountry Builders. We had to fire our last steel guys because of lack of productivity, mistakes in the build, and, frankly, price gouging. They actually looked me up on Facebook and decided that because of my lifestyle, they wanted to charge me a HUGE premium for their labor costs! What a rip off! So, we fired them and got an awesome new crew, led by Josh, the owner of Native Welding and Fabrication. They are really ramping up the pace of the work and the foundation steel should be wrapped up by late November.

I wanted to share a few pics and video clips of my time at the site today. Now that the sub floor (under the real floor of the house) is partially in, I could finally walk out to the edge of the house and take some video. Note that the video is from the subfloor level. The floor of the house will be about 6′ higher and 12′ further out because of the cantilevered decks.
