6. Framing

The home is now being framed.  It will take less than 2 weeks to complete the framing of the entire home.

This is the construction site with all of the materials ready to frame the home.

Steel Beams - Since the home has some large rooms with 
tall ceilings, steel beams are needed to hold up the upper floor.

Floor Joists - These are horizontal boards laid on edge and rest on beams that 
provide the main support for the floor. Subflooring is then applied to the
 floor joists, and then the flooring is installed on top of that (wood floors, tile, carpet, etc).

Here is a view of the basement framing from inside the home.
