Things have slowed down with the next stage of construction waiting for scaffolding to be erected and tradespeople to become available.
This weeks inspection showed the following updates
Scaffolding erected on second storey
Plumbing installed between 2nd storey and ground floor
Windows installed on second storey
Next stage should see cladding installed on the second storey as we move towards the lock-up milestone.
See below for some recent photos, a walkthrough of the second storey and some drone footage showing the surrounding area.
Current view from the front. When the scaffolding comes down next time we’ll have a view much closer to the finished design.
Plumbers have been busy installing drainage for bathrooms and toilets upstairs.

A view of the house and surrounding area. Directly behind our block will be another row of houses, bordering the road currently being built. Further North is the wetland area and off in the distance you can sea the new Torquay Coast Primary School that the boys will attend.

See below for a video showing the ongoing development and construction adjacent to our block.

Framing is now complete, bricks have been delivered and the bricklayers are due to start work tomorrow. Some windows are yet to be installed however they’ll get a start on the garage and other areas which don’t have windows.
A short week this week with Friday being a public holiday in Victoria for the AFL Grand Final.
Progress is less dramatic than previous weeks with most of the roof trusses in place and facia and guttering being fitted to the second storey. From here I expect they’ll finish off roof trusses above the garage next week.
Looking forward to seeing some brickwork and windows going in soon.
First sign of the skillion roof shape.
Framing for the porch has also been constructed.

View from the backyard, looking into the alfresco area. The roof line over the alfresco/lounge area if very low – giving a feeling of more space in the backyard.
View from the Eastern side. The block directly beside us has no signs of construction yet.
