In the fourth year of his reign, in the month of Ziv (a.k.a. May), ground is broken on the temple.
6:2-10 and 15-36 give the specs (hop on over to "Best of the Web" for more on this), in case you want to build Solomon's Temple in your backyard.
During construction, "the word of the Lord came to Solomon" (6:11), promising him that so long as he keeps God's statutes and obeys his commandments, God will dwell with Israel (in the temple) and won't forsake them. Sounds good, God.
