No, these I have tied right in with the drain tile, which goes to the sump pump, but there hasn't been any water in it yet.

Very cool! Some day I will move out of my tiny house and get something a little bigger. Hope it's as nice as this one.

Damn, it's coming together fast!

Looks like you need to hire a broom pusher, though.

I'm not at the meet, lol. Had to skip out too cause I had enough to make it there, but not come back, LOL!

I was supposed to do some flooring this weekend, but I'm going fishing instead.

Well there where 2 guys that hung it, the 3 other guys came to tape/textured, but one guy was just a gopher mixin mud ect. Easier to clean up when done, so you dont have to scrap mud off to put flooring down ect.

ahh nice well im glad to hear everythings goin good for you man cant wait to see the finished product are you doin all the finishing work and that? Thats a pretty good idea for the paper on the floor actually but its just easier for them to drop the excess on the floor and make a nice mess.. i started off in construction layin sub floor for my old man so ive got lots of experience scrapin mud off the floor, even fashioned up a nice scrapin tool to haha.

Haven't updated this lately, but I have 30 days from today to finish it cause my mom sold our current house today, so whats left, finish flooring, hang closet doors, put hanging/storage in the closets, finish staining trim and then put it up, hang cabinets that came yesterday finally, get the plumber back to hook up the sinks, toilets ect. Gas needs to be hooked up. So ya it will be interesting since I go to school everyday from 9am to like 5pm lol.

Great build thread. It's going to be a great house when it's complete.

As for the question from a member regarding the ICF (Insulated concrete forms), it's a great product. I did my final Civil Engineering report in College about it. It's really taken off here in Canada in the last 10 years and it's gone beyond just being used as a foundation product. It's very common for 1st floor outer walls to be constructed using these forms as well. It has a great R value and excellent strength performance qualities. Not to mention, insect proof and weather proof. No forms to set up or take down, it's a two step deal.........set up the blocks and fill with concrete.....just watch for blowouts. LOL
If I was building a house, the basement and first floor would have ICF walls for sure.

Send me a blank check and consider it done

I like granite too, but I kind of got a sour taste in my mouth after a job we did last winter, the "best" granite guy around here kind of put me in a bad spot with a customer and stuff. The HD stuff doesn't look to bad and doesn't cost an arm and a leg and is easy to change down the road....

How much would you pay me to load up all my tools and come do the trim? Cause I love doing it! But I'm broke, LOL! Okay, not broke, but I could use some moolah, lol.

Doesn't it suck working after a full day of doing something else? I've been trying to finish my sisters house after work most days, then work on my side job with a buddy of mine on Fridays and Saturdays, and work either on my parents (three more bedrooms to put flooring down in, retile the kitchen, tile a bathroom, trim all of the rooms, and I think (hope) that's it), my grandma's (actually just finished the stuff I can do for now on hers), or my sisters house on Sundays (only family job I'm getting paid for, LOL!). I've been enjoying sleeping in the last two days, lol.

I wish it was in the budget, Im going to work on it Wednesday and Thursday, two days should be enough, to get it done as long as nobody comes over and bothers me.

Looks pretty goo man. Good luck getting it finished on time. If you didn't cut the wires already, the three mini pendants could stand to come down about 18".

Kitchen looks very nice, but looks to be on the small side/ lack of counter space even with the island, but I like to wood/countertop combo!
