Work in progress status(6/22/09 last update).  I'm lucky if I get 5-6 "real" hours/week into the project, gotta balance the kids/family with it.  During the cold Michigan winter months of Dec thru March I've been:
-Dec04 thru March05;  Plan & design,  changed the stairs going into the basement from a "L" layout to a "U" layout, frame all the walls, tighten log wall rod spring system 
-Dec05 thru March06;  Plumbing/partial HVAC 
-Dec06 thru March07;  Finish HVAC, built home theatre seat riser section, re-tighten log wall rod spring system, sealed bond areas
-Dec07 thru May08; Electrical,drywall,paint, DIY subwoofer, Projector/AV equip installed
