The verandah poles are going up. They are being attached at the base to iron straps set into concrete. Some of the straps in the concrete slab are visible along the edge of the slab and down the center of the slab under what will be the ridge beam. The verandah poles will be attached to straps set into individual concrete post footings, two of which can be seen in the sand in the foreground.
Also note that branches were left on the corner posts to act as diagonal bracing between the top of the posts and the header that will support the roof framing members — they look nice too.
