Roof trusses on!

Things are currently moving at a cracking pace we were not expecting the roof trusses until tomorrow at best.

It is really starting to feel like a house now with the frame mostly in.

Framing

On Friday our internal frame was started and pretty much finished on saturday. Our house is now starting to look like a house.


Back hallway


Front hallway


In the kitchen

At this stage everything is happening so quickly and changes so much. I wonder how it will look at our next visit :)

We're all boxed up

We have waffle pods

Despite the heat the tradies still worked. Our block was smoothed out and the scoria was put down. Holes were also dug - we're thinking it's for the facard.



And our waffle pods were delivered. Now hopefully the rain holds off tomorrow so our slab can go down.

Temporary fencing is up

Nothing too exciting but we have our temporary fence up. We are sharing the fence with our neighbour who is building with Carlisle Homes as well, which makes it look like a huge house is about to be constructed.

Hopefully the slab is down by the end of the week!
