Roof Completed!

Hi Guys,

Our ground floor roof was completed at the end of last week. They still have some capping to finish up at the back as well as some of the sections where the roof meets to brickwork at the front. Here are the pics:

Next week, the carpenters will be back to install the eaves, so here’s hoping some of the showers that they are predicting for the early part of next week do not cause too many interruptions.

Hope you enjoy the rest of this warm weekend!

Air Con & Electrical Rough In

After the ground floor roofing dramas last week, the scaffolding has now been re-erected ready for the roof to go on. The fixing supports have gone on ready for the sarking to go on and then the roof will finally be completed.

The air con rough in happened during the week as well. We had a few dramas getting a duct through to the home theatre, but in the end we reduced the size of the shower in the main bathroom, as this was the best option that we had.

They also completed the electrical rough in at the end of the week, so we are all cabled up! We managed to avert some of the issues with down lights lining up with beams by adding a few to the entry, so that they are now evenly spaced in the foyer.

Here are a few pics, although not a lot has really changed. This angle shows the roof causing all of the problems and the scaffold that has been re-erected:

Hopefully the ground floor roof will be completed this week and they can start to get on with the internals!

Have a great week!

Quiet Times

Not alot has happened in the past fortnight!

Most of the scaffolding has been taken down and removed from site. Here are some pictures from last week:

After speaking with our SS yesterday, it turns out that the delay has been caused by the roof guys, as they requires scaffolding to return to site so that they can complete the roof over the garage. The scaffolding that they normally use is not enough, so there is a bit of a stand off occurring at the moment until this can be arranged! Extremely annoying, as the scaffold was only taken away during the week and the fact that we have lost at least a week with no activity.

This should hopefully be resolved this week. We should also see the air con and electrical rough in happen next week, all going well.

Hope you have a great weekend, and that I have more to report on next week.
