Boeing has provided a number of Operating Empty Weights for the 787-8 in the various ACAPs over the years, though the seat counts have differed, as well.
The current October 2012 117.7 ton OEW is for 242 seats ( 16 F | 44 J | 182 Y ).
In September 2007, OEW was given at 114.5 tons for a 224-seat configuration ( 12 F | 42 J | 170 Y ). That then dropped to 111.5 tons for the same 224-seat configuration in December 2011.
As such, I would expect the 117.7 ton OEW is for current builds.

The Delivered Empty Weight (a Boeing term for Basic Empty Weight) is typically around 252,00#

any suggested ranges on what a heaviest spec would be for a 224-seat config? +3T?
