We are in the middle of a 1,700 sq. ft. build here in Portland. I will throw a few pictures up here, but the owner is a partner at marketing firm, so his blog on the build has a little more polish than I can manage. It's at portlandbuilt.com.
1700+ sq ft on two levels
advanced framing practices
slab on grade construction incorporating uncommon slab insulation details
utilities under and through stem walls to minimize wall penetrations
radiant heat in the slab and in a 1 1/2 ” poured gypsum underlayment on the second story
distance from the street and lack of dedicated driveway requires a residential fire sprinkler system
robust sheathing system comprised of 1/2″ plywood, tyvek house wrap, vertical tongue and groove and horizontally shiplapped 1″ xps foam insulating sheathing, fiber cement siding and “to the plywood” flashing above all penetrations
