All Framed Up

On Friday, Tim and Tony mostly finished installing the steel framing. I think they kept back a few pieces until after the electrician makes an appearance. 

This is our closet area in the center of the space.

And this is the family room area.

I think Tim is going to work on the seismic upgrades on Monday. Apparently, the framing was more fun, so he worked on that part first. LOL

Steel Framing

Tim and Tony spent the day putting in the steel framing.
I think they're about halfway done now.

Basement Subfloor

Tim has returned to the job. On Monday he and Tony finished clearing the floor and then primed over the paint. Then, yesterday they started pouring cement. I have to be honest, I'm not exactly sure if they used regular cement or something special to level the floor. The floor still has an overall slope, but it is flat enough to put down flooring.
The coating was dry by the morning of Day 3.
Then they started putting down DRICORE subfloor panels. They're really neat panels and are ideal for the basement as there is an air gap under them so if we have water infiltration again, they should be able to survive the encounter.

They mostly had all the subfloor installed by the end of today.
I think tomorrow they're going to start putting in seismic bracing.
