Roof on, plumbing rough-in – Day 44 – October 6, 2017

Plenty of progress occurring this week

  • Fixed an issue with the doorway between the garage and hallway
  • Roof, facia and guttering installed on main roof areas
  • Spotted gum posts installed in kitchen and at front porch
  • Rough-in of plumbing; water (hot, cold and recycled) and gas
  • Rectify issue with roof trusses for garage

Next week should see windows installed on the ground floor, insulation wrap applied and brick work commencing.

Main roof done.

We’ve now got a doorway where we need it.

Rough-in for plumbing has been done. Hot and cold water hoses in the laundry.

Spotted gum posts installed in the kitchen area to provide additional structural support. The yellow hose visible above the posts is the gas line.

Bricks have arrived onsite. The brickies will start work next Tuesday.

More spotted gum posts at the front porch.

 

 

Roof Trusses– Day 37 – September 29, 2017

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.

Roof line from the rear.

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.
