Wow, it was a big day for my project. A month ago, my design was sent off to a factory where they engineered my house, put all the walls and windows together and shipped back all of the framing for my house on four semis. The trucks arrived this morning and a crane was used to put the house together like a big, 3-D puzzle. The floor system went in in about an hour and 15 minutes. Interior and exterior walls for the first story went up in the next two hours and 15 minutes. Second-story flooring went in the next 45 minutes. Stairs were installed in 20 minutes. Second-story interior and exterior walls went up in the next hour and 30 minutes. Roof trusses will go up tomorrow and roof will start to be covered.

The process was quite amazing. Here are few of the 100+ pics I snapped off today.

'Wow' is right! That's really cool! And it's going to be a beautiful house.

How does that process compare in cost to doing all that framing and window/door installation on site the usual way?
