All the homes are framed at this point. The roofs will go on soon as well as the windows and waterproofing.
The raised flooring has proved instrumental in the installation of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems. The raised joists run the opposite direction of the joists they sit on so if duct work needs to run north/south it is installed in the raised floor. if it needs to run east/west it is run in the structural bays below the raised floor. This avoids ugly soffits (dropped areas of the ceiling that are boxed out to hide ducts and plumbing). The raised floor is also used to divide the space between living/dining/kitchen by changing the elevation rather than adding walls.
