Ready for plaster – Day 106 – December 7, 2017

Insulation has been installed in the walls and ceiling space and plaster has been delivered to site ready for the plasterers to start on Saturday

We carried out a walkthrough of the build to inspect the location of all electrical work prior to plastering commencing.

Nothing new from the outside

Plaster sheets ready to be hung.

Insulation batts installed throughout the house.

Vents for the heating and cooling system.

One last look at all the utilities before the plaster goes on.

Exterior cladding update – Day 100 – December 1, 2017

The external cladding is almost complete with only a small section remaining on the eastern side of the house. This is due to a window needing to be replaced before cladding can be completed – wrong type of window with top of vanity running directly into window .

It was a good time to get the cladding installed with an inch of rain falling over the weekend.

Next week should see the completion of external cladding, rough-in of the heating/cooling system, install of insulation batts and perhaps a start on plastering.

The facade starting to take shape. Bricks around the garage will be rendered and paint applied to the cladding on the second storey. Will be good when the scaffolding finally comes down.

Shiplap cladding installed around the office and porch.

Lake Torquay in the back yard.
