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.

Exterior cladding progress – Day 93 – November 24, 2017

After a few weeks of delays the cladding has started this week. Spotted gum shiplap around the front of the office and Axon (vertical) and Linea (horizontal) cladding around the second storey. It will be good to see the green insulation wrap disappear as more cladding is installed this week.

Further progress inside with the vacuum ducting installed.

Another material added to the facade – spotted gum on the front of the office.
