We are using 5 ply wood decking that is glued and screwed to the purlins. As I have mentioned earlier, We have custom designed the floors in this house to provide for large column free spaces while keeping the cost of the material and labor for building the floors low ... so far it is looking good, and we will continue to optimize the floor system for material cost, labor cost, and ease of construction.

I talked about the structural steel for the First Floor framing in my post ... Structural-Steel-Framing-First-Floor-New-ICF-House-In-Ann-Arbor-Michigan-EneE1-AttM1-101 and basement ICF walls for this house and the First Floor framing layout of the house in my post ... Basement-Walls-New-ICF-House-In-Ann-Arbor-Michigan-EneE1-AttM1-101.

Open web steel joists are supported on structural steel beams that run across the columns to the long walls. The open web steel joists will carry the purlins which in turn will carry the floor decking. I discussed the open web steel joists in my post ...

Purlins are shown in Purlins-Over-Open-Web-Steel-Joists-First-Floor-New-ICF-House-In-Ann-Arbor-Michigan-EneE1-AttM1-101

I have presented here some pictures of the wood decking for the First Floor ... I will keep you posted with more progress pictures of the structure for this house.
