Framing is continuing - the trusses were set last week, and they are sheathing the roof.

The usual view from the front: the roof planes are now apparent, and framing of the two cupolas has started. arches on the front entry portico are nearly complete.

A view perpendicular to the front door from a lower angle.

The view from the front door through the house; still a lot going on and it's difficult to see the rooms and ceilings, but the view is nice.

View from the master bedroom (south), through the rear loggia and out to the valley.

View north toward the rear of the house: master bedroom at left, living room in center, nook and family room at right.

View across the rear of the house; arches for the loggias are framed.

View west through the rear loggias. The nook protrudes out into the covered area.

House in Chino Hills: Progress

     Things seemed to have slowed down, because most of the framing remaining is details, soffits and ceilings. The roof trusses were dropped off this week, and some of the arched soffits have been framed on the front portico

House in Chino Hills: Progress

The framing of the porticos has begun, and sheathing is nearly complete. The semicircular soffits that form the arches have not been constructed, so the arches of the windows and collonade on the portico are not yet visible. Trusses will arrive soon, and roof framing will begin.

Appearing more solid, now.

From the front door, there will be a view through the house to the valley.

View of the rear elevation and terraced lawn, not looking like much, yet.

Framing: The garage is at the left in the foreground, and the entry is just to the right of center. The construction lift is parked in the front yard / auto court.
