Week of July, 22, 2007: The second floor steel deck goes up. Being on the reflective steel deck in the middle of summer feels like an ant might feel under a magnifying glass of some evil 5 year old... Carlo Battaglia of Battaglia Homes, Inc (shown in pic.) stops by to chat and helps lay out the walls on the second floor in the 100 degree heat. Although he builds traditional custom homes in Hindsdale, his expertise is something you don't want to turn away.
Then the roof steel steel starts to go up...
Gianluca in his usual "construction gear". Flipflops and socks.
And the first floor metal stud framing... This will be the playroom/office/exercise room. The opening in the ceiling is where the stair will eventually go.
