Today's progress: They got my in-take set in today. Look like rocket jets. There will be an elbow pointing down to keep rain out. Structurally because these are deep in the foundation & penetrate the foundation they need to have rebar & concrete support. We had to go with 3, 6"(interior diameter) pipes to get to the intake size I needed. Actually 18 is more than i need but there are some bends. 16 would have worked. My exhaust is 14".
I think it looks cool. I'm going to plant mint below the intake. Probably won't actually smell it but it would be nice.

The Plumbers had to move all their work because they read the plans wrong ...glad I caught it.

Next boring yet exciting photo.
The sleeves for the propane & O2 lines. No more tripping over the speed bump ( see post 14 in this thread). The speed bump is a cover over the gas lines in the current studio.

More boring. But a good foundation is important.
Vapor barrier & some rebar in. It was ridiculously hot. With the black vapor barrier & the hot metal, the crew went home early.

Still at the boring but very important stage. The foundation. They will have to come back & correct more mistakes. They forgot the curbs for the 2 porches. The structural engineer inspector did not like some of the rebar ,so that's a redo for them. My builders answer is don't worry these mistakes will be corrected at no cost to you. Of course they will, but it's really bugging me that both the plumber & the foundation crew have made some pretty obvious mistakes . If the foundation was poured today anything dropped at the back would roll to the front. Inspector used a water level to check it.
They are out there now working on fixing everything....except the framers inspected & say the pipes are still not right. They need to move them in from the edge.
I'm trying to visualize the beautiful finished studio instead of getting to worked up about the idiocy happening out there.

It'll happen Sam, but it won't happen without birthing pains. Keep up your spirits.

Slow progress. Waiting on the joists. There are a few walls up & some shething. It's been so ridiculously hot( 100 plus days) I don't know how they have done as much as they have. Half of the studio will have nice morning shade. The June 22 photo shows the south facing porch.
There is always a nice breeze.

Progress!
Will the windows be energy saving ones? Maybe cut down on hour heating/cooling bills.

It is going to be so nice for you to have it right there when finished!

that would worry me too. I hope they are licensed and insured.
Glad you are keeping an eye.
Soon soon!
