Lids on!

Its been another productive week on block with our roof being completed. The wet weather again through a spanner in the works on a number of instances during the week but to our surprise the roofing guys worked over the weekend and finished like we were promised.

We absolutely love the finished product and how the Mild Steel bricks work with the Woodland Grey roof. We even managed to be onsite over the weekend when it was raining, and hearing the noise of the rain on the roof is something we are looking forward to.

Our Site Supervisor rang during the week to give us an update on current progress. He told us that all the eaves and front pillars would be complete before Christmas as well as the bricks being cleaned and electrical roughed in. He said he could have started the gyprock, but with only a few weeks till Christmas, it would be too risky to leave the house unlocked over that period. So Gyprocking is apparently locked in for early January.

On another note, we have started the ball rolling and are awaiting a number of extra quotes on lighting and wiring, while all the timber and fibre board has been delivered and work is commencing today on the eaves. Look forward to the continuing progress!
