框架,说的便是衡宇的框架。我们从地基开端建起,然后我们制作地上层,接着砌墙,再建二层,再砌墙,墙体建好之后安窗子,装饰完外墙。肯定状况下,我们会封顶。

Todd: Wow, that's cool. What it a good experience?

Todd: OK, where would you build this house?

好啊,那你计划把这所屋子建在哪呢?

Rob: That's a good question. I'm thinking, maybe back in Canada, but maybe not in the East Coast. It'd be possibly in B.C. or maybe in another country. Who knows?
