Sitting idle this week

This week the house has been sitting idle. Internal plumbing was completed, but the outside gas outlet was installed on the wrong side of the alfresco. A call to the SS and this was promptly fixed at the end of the week.

Bricks have been delivered, but the brickies are still working on another job so now we wait. Hoepfully they will start soon.

Roof framing complete and windows installed

Today the last part of the roof was erected, which means the framing stage is now complete. Today the windows must have been delivered and this afternoon they were instaling the windows and expected to be finished by the end of today. Windows are Anodic off white, which should hopefully have a nice contrast with our bricks.

The bricks are due to delivered early next week.

Second floor framing

The second floor framing was started this week. Did our first walk through and very happy with the size of the rooms. Our walk in pantry is huge, storeroom is also big, going to love having a lot more storage space.

Drove by this afternoon and a tradesman was there doing some more work on the frame. Roof has also been delivered so that should be completed early next week.

Framing has started

Today the builder started on the frames. First floor nealy complete. Pretty happy things are still progressing well. We can now have a bit of an idea of room sizes.

External plumbing done

Drove by the block today and found the external plumbing was completed yesterday.

Plus we now have a big pile of dirt at the back of the house and the front. Hmmm, not sure if we can utilise that for fill. I'm sure there will be growing pile of something as the build progresses.
Our SS contacted us late last week, after external plumbing, the next item on the list to be completed is the frame.

We have a slab!!

Another day, this time we have a slab! Can't believe how much work has been completed, this time last week we had a scapped site, 4 work days later we have a slab.

Today the builders were back on the block completing the formwork. Looks like we are ready for the concrete slab.
