Is that gas treated with mercaptan so you have an odor if you get a leak? That's a sweet deal for sure!

We did not do any spray foam but we did use batten, blown in insulation. Basically they put up a net between the studs and then stuffed the cavity. You get a denser pack and ultimately, higher R-Value rating. I must say, our house is VERY quiet and feels like the heat is staying in (except for the open air ceiling)! Sheetrock will fix that.

Also, we insulated between all of the interior walls. Really makes the house feel more solid.

1/8/13 Update: It really looks like a house now!

I have said it before I know, but the Amish amaze me! Here are a few pics taken from today's progress and as you can see, it is really taking shape nicely. The trusses go on tomorrow and I would imagine they will get it decked as well and the front wall should go on. The scaffolding will be set-up for the front wall build and then they have to stick frame the trusses for the peak area and that will pretty much conclude things for them. With the roofers set to start on Monday I think the next 2 days will move along at an even more rapid pace.
The excavator and dozer arrive on Thursday morning followed by 160 ton of sand to be slung into the garage, another 40 ton of 57 wash for the footer drains and just for fun I'm gonna round it all off with another 60 ton of limestone 1's and 2's to complete the new drive elevation to the garage........YEP, it's gonna be another costly day of material that will get burried!

Man, I could have had a tower on my boat if not for all this and probably be one step closer to thinking about the thought of thinking about retiring someday in the distant future!

Yes, the greatroom is 2 story with a loft area on the rear-center portion of the house which has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a general "loft" area overlooking the greatroom. When all is said and done I will build a deck all the way around the house 6' wide from the front door over to the door located to the right of the greatroom where it will open up to a larger, 24'x24' deck that also comes off of the master bedroom. (This will be my summer project amongst a lot of other things!)

1/9/13 Morning Update: We have trusses!

Just got these pictures from my builder as the trusses are being set and mostly up. At this rate I would have to say the house will get decked today and the front wall will start taking shape.
More to come later when I get to the site!

It's amazing how fast those things go up! All pretty much in a day.....

Are you going to wire the house for speaker system?
