Steel construction makes for some pretty cool photos.
Here, one of the erection crew is trimming some of the roof decking. Of the scores of panels of B-decking used in the house, only two needed to be trimmed. This efficiency - less material used, less waste on site, lower transportation costs - is one of the advantages to prefabrication.
One disadvantage is the need for specialized (read: expensive) machinery, like boom cranes...
The light gauge framing (left) being moved from the front of the site to make room for the insulated roof panels (below), which arrived last week.
