Herewith some pics of the construction of our house.
It's all pretty straight forward..
Starting from a foundation for the columns, attach the rebars. Then the floorslab is poored - lots of steel in there as well.
Then the walls are blocked up. Here and there a vertical rebar ( every three feet or so )
The columns are poored before the next level slab is poored. The floor of the next level is poored in connection with the tops of the columns and a ring beam on top of the wall.
Lots of steel, lots of concrete but strong enough to withstand even strong hurricanes..
