Ive been able to make some trips up and get to work on all my rough ins. For my first inspection he wants plumbing and electric rough in done. Funny been working on this since last summer and still haven't had an inspection except for basement and septic. I got 95% of plumbing waste lines in and the water lines run. First time using PEX and it went well. Was able to get the pump hooked up and had no leaks so I guess that's a plus. Want to get the downstairs bathroom finished so I have a toilet and shower. Going to see if the inspector will mind me holding off on the upstairs bathroom just because I have to many others things Id like to get done than that, all plumbing is run for it. I rather like having that 2nd floor completely open and 1 bathroom might work for quite awhile. We will see. Main gas line is run its a 1" csst gastite line ran the entire length of the cabin thru the floor joist. I will branch off it to all my appliances. One end will hook to the tank other end I will run to a BBQ. All interior walls are framed in. During the process of building I was always adjusting walls or stairs to help with the living room or kitchen. The master bedroom payed the price though. It ended up being 12.5' by 11'. Definitely small for a Master but it will work.

Hallway to bathroom and bedroom their will be a coat/storage closet then behind it is the bedroom closet. Just put the king studs in for the doors so had more room to move around.

rather large closet for bedroom (3'4" deep) I will either move the opening back 10" so the door can open farther or just leave the closet doors off and have it as a walk in so the door can open farther. Probably move it back.

Jkl drafting and design. Its out of st george, ut. Only reason i used them is Utah requires a structural engineer from Utah to sign off  on the plans.

That is one of the few things I sub contracted out so far. Basement and footing (a lot of footing for walk around deck) and septic was $42k. That's about 12k more than I planned on paying. My build started right when construction started to boom again and I either couldn't find any contractors to even give a bid or all my bids were really high.

That did include the septic. 1250 gallon tank.
Do u mean my supplier for wood?
If so....cedar city actually has quite a few lumber yards but surprisingly enough home depot was the cheapest and actually easy to work with did everything thru email or phone call and payed on the phone. Best of all their delivery fee was only $99 and it's almost a 2 hr drive one way from cedar. Everyone else was $300 so saved me alot with just that.

Its even worse this summer than last. Wasnt planning on doing my plumbing but after calling every city around my cabin I never got 1 bid. They are that busy. Dont blame them if u have the work why drive out to a remote cabin to do a small job, (small job for them huge job for me:)

The wood question was for building your home.

I am having the same issue.  Can't even get a contractor to return a phone call much less actually bid the project - especially when they find out how remote we are located.  The idea of getting multiple quotes goes out the window when you struggle to get a single quote!

We ended up getting a bid for $17,000 for septic, poured stem-wall foundation, final site leveling and backfilling, and a little road work - not too bad considering the remote location and rural area we live.

Seems like a good price. I definitely picked the wrong time to start the build. It does force me to learn new things and save money so guess it's better in the long run.

ffpara - I think I mentioned it before, but the guys that did your foundation and sitework did an awesome job. Worth the money IMO and not a surprising amount either.

I think that people are hesitant to talk about those costs because it is really expensive, and there isn't really any way around it. Well, that's what is attractive about piers - until you have 10s of thousands of dollars, blood, sweat, and tears sitting on those rinky dink things.

Anyway, money well spent.

Did you have any problems with the 12' walls and the permit people ?

How did you frame the sill plate to the floor around the basement opening ?
