Is it possible (and maybe a brief descripion of how to) to get the output files SHFB uses to work with Sandcastle so that I can execute the build manually?  I ask because I'd like to debug through the Sandcastle code as I'm running it.

Set the CleanIntermediates property in the SHFB project file to false and build your project.  You'll find all the intermediate files in the working folder.  You can use those files as input to the Sandcastle tools while debugging them in the Sandcastle VS projects.  You can run the tools from the command line without any parameters to get the command line syntax to use in the debugger settings.
