One thing I've noticed both in our neighborhood and on the various Building with Ryan blogs is that the framing of the house doesn't take very long at all. Ryan seems to have the process down to a science almost and doesn't waste time putting it together. Our house has certainly been no exception. Every day I stopped by this week there was progress.
When I went by Tuesday the garage floor had been poured and roof trusses had been delivered:
By Wednesday the rest of the second floor above the garage had been added along with the stairs:
On Thursday afternoon the roof was on and windows had been installed:
This afternoon I got a call from the project manager letting me know framing had been completed and roofing work would proceed this weekend. Next week work will commence on installing ductwork, wiring, and plumbing with the expectation that we will have a our pre-drywall walkthrough sometime in the next ten days.
I had a chance to walk through it this evening. It's amazing to me how far things have progressed. Just three weeks ago the lot was still bare and now we've got a framed house.

Attic access in bedroom #3. I find it a bit bizarre that it's in a bedroom but I was told there's no space to put it in a hallway like I've always seen it in every other house I've ever been in.
