Windows in and Roof almost up

Went by the house again this afternoon.

All the windows are in, except for the back bedroom and most of the roof has gone up. There was one piece that was incorrect so they have sent that back to get fixed up.

I noticed all our stacker doors on site too, so I guess they will also be going in soon.

I think they have a couple of more days left finishing the frame and then I think they are going to tile the roof first, before the brick. At least the framework will be better protected.

I have never seen the roof being tiled before the brick but when I googled, it appears to be a common thing.

Anyway, took some extra photos:

Frames Up!!

Well, managed to get some photos today of the frame and had a walk through the house.

Amazing.. It's so funny when we stood on the slab last week trying to work out how the rooms were going to fit, it just looked so small.

Now after walking through and seeing the actual rooms, it's amazing how it all just fits together.

Went by on Friday too and Brett (carpenter) and his boys were working onsite. What a nice guy.

He said they have a few days to complete and the windows are ordered for Tuesday. All the roof is onsite and crane has been ordered plus all our guttering also is onsite. It's getting so exciting now.

One thing we didn't realise is how huge the windows all are. You dont see the height on the plans only the width, but they practically go from floor to ceiling so will be interesting to see what they look like next week.

Anyway, here are some photo's, even though its hard to see what anything actually is, its too exciting not to post them up..
