    it realy all comes down to the design you chose, be it for soil reasons or financhal ones. kind of like the slab V/S basement, its up to you and then the builder to put in what you want.
    that was probly more info than you were looking for hu.
    no thats cool fun4now thanks for explaining that to me. I have always been curious of this. I was thinking well the place i had lived in the summer was only like 3 months long so I would hear stories like they would build the entire outside of the house first then for the winter they would build all of the inside the house because of all the snow fall. I wasn't sure if maybe they had problems with the concrete curing because it was so cold or what. Thanks

    sorry if I sound like a smart *** I was just wondering if you were doing concrete. When I use to live in Colorado they would always concrete there garage after the house was built I didn't understand that. Here in the south they pour the entire slab then build the house. Can anyone tell me why? Thanks,

Not really sure which type of standing seam roof they use large duckbill tongs to crimp the seams together , but that’s a system used too.
    Thanks Pile Buck, sounds like the better way to go here on the wet coast

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for the nice replys!
    Buck, the roof is just steel like the walls.
    They still have to get the insulation in and the interior needs to have the steel installed. If ya look at the last pic you can see that they started to install the ceiling steel. The walls and ceiling will be white. I will pour the concrete last. After the building is up I'll run the electric and then pour the concrete. I bought a coal stove to heat it. I think it should be ready to move into in 2-3 weeks. I'll keep ya posted.

    Is that a standing seam roof? If so you’ll just love that. I wish I would have gone with it.
