Building the Subfloor

We are finally done building the subfloor for the first level! After some hiccups with the steel columns that delayed us a bit, we are ready to move on to framing for the first floor walls. The columns are all bolted in above and below the steel beam, the wood I-joists are all in place with rim boards and blocking, and the floor sheathing has been glued and nailed down.
