The slab usually sits for a couple of days before they immediately start putting up the frame. They measure the house from several different places and then start laying out the wood.
Within a few hours, it could already look like this...
The first floor frame can usually go up in a day or two. Sometimes it amazes me how I drive by in the morning and there is no frame, and by the time I drive by in the late afternoon, voila, there's a frame!
