Framing looks good Todd, What kind of insulation are you using batt insulation ? Do they use foam around your area?

Thanks, Wayne. I'm using a radiant barrier sheathing and I'm thinking blown in cellulose in the walls and attic in the house and batt in the garage. I still need to nail it down 100%. I don't like the spray foam due to chemicals and cost.

Thankfully most people donít seem to be adversely affected by spray foam insulation.

But 4 years later and Iím still suffering side effects from it.

The framers have been working their butts off. The trusses are 90% on at this point. They need to add some transitions and bracing for the roof. I'll post again once the sheathing is on and there are more details. The front HIP roof to the right of the entry will add some character once it's complete.

I'm really pleased with the way it looks and feels. It has so many different elevation changes front to back and high and low. It really has that unique and custom feel I was going for. The great room really feels cool and the garage it bad ass with its 12' ceiling in the shop and 10" door.
