Upper Floor Concrete

After much checking, measuring and checking again the position of plumbing and various other sticky out bits (technical term) we finally have some upstairs concrete.
This is good for getting a perspective of how big the rooms and bathrooms will be and getting a feel for the layout. Upstairs wall panels will be ready to go in a couple of weeks giving the concrete some curing time and from then on we hope a roof.
Below are some pics of the reinforcing and concrete that was completed yesterday.
