Construction Update 7: Frames and Trusses

Construction Update 7: Frames and Trusses

Now that the holiday season is over, work on our block has started again — and I could not be more excited to see the structure starting to go up!

The frames on the ground floor of both dwellings are done (just waiting for steel to be delivered on site to do the second level) and in the second dwelling the roof trusses are also done 🙂

Next week the brickies will be back on site and then the windows will go in — WOOT!

It’s surreal walking through the house now and seeing the build progress. Now I just can’t wait to move in but as you can see there’s a while to go yet 😉

      Yay. It’s taken a while to get to this point but I’m hoping the next few weeks/months go fast so we can move in soon 🙂

  4. Looking good Gina!

      Thanks Nick. I can’t wait for next week when we start bricking up and get windows… then it will almost be a house!
