Framing the new roof

It's been raining here the past few days, which is annoying because our contractor is the process of framing the new roof and I hate seeing everything inside the building get wet, even though everyone assures me that the wood is treated and it's okay. Here's how the third floor and roof look now.

The box for our skylight has also been framed:

This morning while meeting at the building to pay our contractor and sign a contract with the company that's going to be doing the rough plumbing, our ironworker's crew showed up with the new fire escape. Fingers crossed that it doesn't look absolutely awful after installation. (We know it's going to be an eyesore but the fire code requires it...or else a second internal staircase, which we have absolutely no room for.) My biggest worry is that the cantilevered part might end up hanging too low, cutting significantly across the second floor windows.
