Scott,

there are no magic numbers; remove the forms when the concrete becomes firm (perhaps as soon as 3-4 hours after placing the concrete). For a lightweight structure such as a house I would think you could begin framing the house within 7 days -- maybe less depending on the concrete mixture and weather.
