Moving at a snail's pace

So another week has gone by and all that has changed on our new home is the cementing of our basement and garage.  I guess this is progress but I really want to start seeing some framing being done in order to boost my confidence level.

Here's my usual shot from the street.  Probably doesn't look too much different except for a ladder sticking up from the basement.

The bottom of this picture will be the utility room including furnace, tub, tankless hot water heater and electrical.  The top of the picture will be where our eventual rec room is going to be.

Here is the other side of the basement.  Those tubes with blue caps on them are the 2-piece bathroom rough ins.  We could have had a 3-piece rough in but decided we didn't have a need for a third shower in the basement.  I'm not sure what I am going to do with this side of the basement yet.  I could create an L-shaped rec room but I also want to leave enough unfinished space for storage.  Once the house is done I will have a better idea of what the dimensions are.
