I though I was being flippant with that last remark.  

As it turned out only one of the concrete contractors, that had previously bid the project, even bothered to respond with their availability. One out of eight!

I am however, very pleased with who I ended up using. Instead of questioning the over engineered nature of my plans (like most of the others did), he and his two sons simply built a massively strong foundation.foundation1.thumb.jpg.a5d39a271e18e2c80ca8f5677b068d3f.jpg

Waiting now for our nephew, who's a general contractor, to create a materials list from my plans, so I can price the lumber.

With the help of my nephew, I was able to build and erect these two 12' wall sections on Saturday before the rain started.
Two more days of rain, then at least a week of dry weather ahead. Hoping for some major progress.

My first inspection went well. Only a couple of corrections needed. Add a few brackets to the shear walls and blocking. And add one concrete anchor. Inspector said he'd sign those off at the next inspection and gave the go ahead to install the roof and rough electrical.

Took this pic this morning.

With the roof and gutters installed, I'll be mounting electrical boxes and running wire soon. And I have a guy lined up to do all the stucco to match the house.
