Holy Crap its been 2 months! So having a soon to be wife 6 hours away and working a crazy schedule makes the time fly but the next 2 weeks I plan on having picture every couple of days as I'm almost done with this thing. Which is great because as soon as I'm done I get to start building a pottery studio for future Mrs.Sureshot.
The barn/shop with my cabinet frames laid out on the floor.
Another shot of the frames, the stainless tubing you see will be exposed with wood drawer facing coming flush with the front of the stainless (no swinging cabinet doors) the frames will have 4" legs supporting them.
A view of the painted living room with my oven waiting for cabinets.
fridge is in place, with my makeshift table from my tile saw box.
Guest shower with the tile done, minus cleaning the grout dust off completely.
another view of the guest bath.
Living room into the master bedroom
The master bath vanity is finally up as of today. still need to hook up the drains and put the faucet hardware on.
Cast iron tub from craigslist is in, although it need to be refinished on the inside. I plan on trying a do it yourself kit.
The walk in shower, still lacking some grout in one corner and painting the ceiling.
looking out of the master bathroom.
The appraisers will be coming next week, finally starting to feel like I might actually finish this thing.
Thank you guys and gals for the feedback and encouragement.

So when do the producers of Cribs show up to plan for the future episode? Your place is so unique and I am sure all the hard work you've put in is gratifying. Congratulations on such a nice looking home and I hope you and your new bride enjoy a lifetime of happyness there building memories.
That is looking really nice. Definitely publication-worthy, both for aesthetics and for DIY-ness.

Not sure how I have missed this thread, but it rules! Nice work.
I LOVE the stainless vanity! Very cool idea. Between that and the dark floors, somehow you managed to successfully combine an industrial feel with a classic look perfectly. Great job! A few questions from someone who knows nothing about building or code or any of that... Is there anything stopping you from making it a "two level" house now? With your fabrication skills a spiral staircase would be cake to put together (wrought iron would look awesome), then throw some windows on the one side (the "tall side farthest from the hill), enclose part of the back side (against the hill) with the steel for your gun room and put the pottery studio on the front side with all the natural light. Just some ideas, not sure how feasible it is though, but would also effectively double the sq footage of the house.

Of all the stuff you have done, my favorite part is still that floor.

Wow, keep up the great work!
Thank you for the comments. There really isn't anything keeping me from making it a split level, and in fact that was the original idea for the pottery studio expansion. I was going to remove the dirt from under the house (or most of it) and then pour concrete and do as you suggested with windows along the high side and then a garage door on the end facing the drive way and add about 1000 sq/ft (2/3 of the above part)
After crunching the numbers (and the fact we moved up her move in date by a month to June 1st) it will be faster and cheaper to build an identical looking building perpendicual to the side of the house closest to the woods. The plan is for a 15x35 studio that will be just hers with me building a wood/metal shop sometime in the future.
So for now the plan is to finish the house in the next two weeks, and hopefully have her up and running by the end of June. Luckily I Have 75% of the materials I need to build her studio.
Its funny how now that I'm almost finished, work is starting to slow back down but thats life I suppose.

Love the bathroom and wood floors.
I would hire someone to do the tub. I did one years ago when I didn't want to spend much. It looked ok and laster a few year but then started to flake around the drain. Prep is your friend if you do decide to take it one.
I've aslo seen them done by people that do them everyday. They are worth what they charge just make sure they know what they are doing.
