This is the steel that is supporting the flat roof section (masterbedroom and bath) and the overhang at the back of the house.
Here the form is in place for the pouring of the half module that is the masterbedroom. They will be pouring on the 2/22.

These photos show some of the steel re bar that went into the 12" walls of the first module. The provisions for electricity can be seen also.
