I am building a new home with Simonds. They poured the slab yesterday and there was light rain yesterday.
Today they have started putting the frame up and I don't think the concrete would have cured properly. The supervisor said it should be ok as they are not putting the roof on for a few days yet.
it is too early for the builder to start the frame?

It is common practice these day. The frame has little pressure impact.
Rainwater Harvesting Best Practice. Cleaner water without diverting downpipes or needing tank overflow.
Supa Gutter Pumper. A simple, inexpensive gutter overflow solution.

Textbook says no but I have done it many times myself without adverse effect. If you are just walking on it and assembling light frames it should be Ok but i would not put a pallet on it.

around Impact anchors. No Fixings No loading
