More progress! Bricks were delivered and the roofing scaffold is down. It’s really starting to look like a house now! I haven’t had a chance to drive by this week, but my other half has and he said the wall wrap/sarking is going on and the bricks have been moved around the site, with strategic piles ready for bricklaying. We are hopeful the brickies will start this week, but it all depends on whether they get the house they’re working on this week finished!
Just in time for 24 hours of soaking rain, the roofers got most of the Colourbond on during the week. Hopefully they’ll be able to finish the ridging and the finish the roof this week (if the rain stops). Our Site Supervisor says the bricks should be delivered this week, with bricklaying hopefully to start the following week. There are only so many brickies to go around in Canberra, and we are building right in the middle of a residential construction boon, so we will have to remain pretty relaxed about the whole thing.
Here are some pics from Friday morning.
It’s coming along nicely and we are really pleased with everything so far. We should be at lock-up sometime in June, so we are on schedule so far. Let’s hope it continues this way 😉
Yes, the yucks keep on coming 😉
I drove past the block on the way home from work tonight. I’m very exciting to report that the carpenters have been going great guns on the block and we now not only have a frame, but the windows are in, most of our roof trusses are up and we can see the wooden beam framing the front porch. The house is really starting to take shape. Hooray!
