Frame started, lower slab postponed!

So with the bricking finished for the time being, they decided to start on the framing. I say "decided" as according to the schedule the builder gave us the lower slab was meant to happen soon after the walls were up. But the crushed blue glass which is meant to be scattered through the slab is not available for 3 weeks, so they will get on with the frame and do the lower slab after they do the upper slab. AE has said that they often do this, and it will actually protect the slab from the no biggy I suppose.

Beginning of the frame. Frame showing the inclined columns.

Condeck for upper slab.And the view from the western side.
I was a bit nervous at first, but I ventured out onto the condeck to see what the view is like....AND we have a water view. OK so it's more of a water glimpse, but it's still pretty!! This is the view from our dining/family rooms. The deck will extend out further so we may get a better view from there. As it is, I know we can see the New Years fireworks from here as we watched them last year (I made everyone race up the driveway last year at midnight to watch them) so bring on New Years 2010...we might be in by then. Condeck completed.And from the front. On the right is the deck on the western side of the house. This extends around to in front of o0ur bedroom, and forms the roof for the carport.
