I went by the job site this evening to see what was going on and was happy to find that Monolithic has moved all the equipment offsite and they are now done with the construction of the domes. I expect to complete a walk through with them later this week or early next week, but that is a minor thing.
At the same time I was hoping to see the progress the framers had made in constructing the first floor walls, or at least marking out where the walls go, but I saw no sign that they had done much of anything. I know the general contractor had to fall back to his second team of framers since the first choice was still tied up on another job, but with this being hump day and nothing having been done I wonder if he is planning on going back to number one starting next week. I need to give him a call tomorrow and talk about it.
Another tip for those of you that are doing this or thinking about doing it. If you get a general contractor, pester him to death about everything that bothers you. That is his job, so answer your concerns. If you are going to hire the sub-contractors yourself, you will have to deal with more of the frustrations yourself.
