Where are the walls to the cold room getting poured?

Those are insulated concrete forms. I'll try to get some pictures up of the walls being pumped with concrete.

If you look at the top picture there is a door all the way to the left. That is a room made completely out of styrofoam and cement (except for the ceiling). Also I omitted the radiant heat tubing in that room.

Nice build. Working in the snow sucks, so much props to your contractor and his crew.

How long has it taken from breaking ground to this point?

We have a bit more snow now. The last pics were taken before Christmas. The R value is pretty darn good but the key factor is the building envelope is almost completely sealed to air infiltration and there is no heat loss to thermal bridging.

My Aussie is about 6 now I guess, she is a great dog. I'd like to have another.

We broke ground around mid-August. There is two of us, myself and my friend working on it. Also "my poor ol' grey-haired daddy" helps out from time to time. My friend has had pneumonia for the past 3 weeks and was in pretty rough shape. He is now on the mend so we are just getting going again. No to mention it has been FRICKIN' COLD.
