Forging ahead with the house

It's been a busy weekend on the homebuilding front and as a result I haven't had any time for cooking, creating or blogging.
On Friday, steel was set for the roof over our master bedroom and we spent some time out at the site covering all the window and door openings in this part of the house in preparation for pouring the concrete slab. Since winter is still sticking around in full force, we need to close off and heat this room to keep the concrete slab above at a reasonable temperature for curing.
Here's what it looks like from inside now that the joists and decking are in place:

I'll head out tomorrow morning to set up the heater while the concrete crew is pouring and finishing the slab, and then we're ready to set the steel for the upper level floors. It's really exciting to see the spaces become more and more defined with each step ahead.
I'm looking forward to a relaxing evening at home tonight and the new episode of Desperate Housewives.
(thanks to our pal Matt for remembering to take a few pics)

Wow it's really coming along. You'll be cooking, knitting, pedaling and wrenching in the house in no time flat. So sorry...DH isn't on tonight.
