In addition to the pouring of the basement and the front porch, the framers were busy today as well. Portions of the second floor were installed, as well as the steps between the main and second floors. We did not walk into the house, because we did not want to step on the freshly poured porch or use the little ramp from the garage. But here are some pictures from the outside:

Also today our Power-Pipe arrived. That's good service from EFI -- I had placed the order yesterday and it was waiting for me at home today. We need to supply it to the plumber at the time of rough plumbing, and it will be installed to recover heat from both upstairs bathrooms.
