The other exciting event that took place today was the delivery of our lumber and windows. There is a ton of framed and sheathed walls, trusses, glu-lam beams, steel columns, I-joists, OSB panels, etc., all stacked up and ready to go. Looked like just about everything was there with the exception of the front door and rear slider. Framing can begin at any time now. According to our PM, the framing crew is finishing up on another house right now and will hopefully start ours on Friday. Things should really start taking shape now!

Under-slab Plumbing Complete and Lumber Arrives
When I drove by the house this morning the plumbers were there. I stopped and chatted with them for a few minutes. They were able to omit the rear plumbing stack that would be right within the future finished space. Instead of having the two stacks, they will simply direct all of the drains to the main stack located within the utility space of the basement. This is how the CG model we looked at was done. So it looks like we are now ready for a floor slab.
