One of those days where everything goes backwards: the entire roof system was lifted so that the framers could place 2x6 top plates around the entire perimeter of the house, above the steel posts (see picture below). This took most of the day, and the remains of the day was spent nailing 2x4 strapping to the I joists.

It's all good, though. The structure will be stronger for it, and it doesn't set us back much. Onwards and upwards.
