How many habitable floors is the steel structure supposed to hold? I'd look back to find a diagram but I'm not sure what page it's on.

He's using youtube tags. If you click on "quote" for his message you can see how he does it.

Man, we're almost at the pivotal point, where we find out if the concrete tops out where we think it will or not. I guess since everything else so far has been exactly in line with the plans we've seen, it probably will top out.

Actually, is that true? Have there been any deviations from the plans so far?

to Cullwulla, tier 11 shudnt have two sides to the thing. hang on let me do a rough paint edit i cant explain lol

EDIT added pic with notations..

firstly uve marked tier 3 as being the first left tier but its actually tier 2, tier 3,6,9,12 and 15 are on the other side and pay no part in the diagram becasue we cant see them.

secondly, ive tried to adapt the tier widths so they are more accurate.

thirdly, tier 10 stops on the right tier and goes no futher accept for the core wings which should possible be shown in a slightly darker orange, there will be no blue parts here because the core will be at its final width already.

fourthly, tier 11 goes upto the left as the width shown and stops there, the other side doesnt have a bit going in at all so ive updated that.

fifthly, as previously said, tier 12 cannot be seen and there is no width adjustment here.

sixthly, tier 13 is following from the right side seeing as tier 10 is the lowest side. tier 14 is on the lft side and tier 15 cannot be seen

Thanks for the new diagram CULWULLA.


So it looks like no rooms for rent or sale in the steel structure. I'd love to be in this building during a severe thunderstorm.

A floor every three days only happen when there are no core reconfigurations. Since there are going to be several setbacks before the top of the concrete, it won't go at that rate.
