More roof

More of the roof has been done, but think that's it now for the xmas shutdown. Electricals due to be done when they come back, so have been trying to finalise a few last minute additions and small changes to the electrical plan. Again, Wisdom have been very accomodating with these changes.

We also received the kitchen, laundry and vanity unit plans. We're happy with pretty much everything there, except we'd like to add drawers to the main bathroom vanity and have both washer and dryer under the bench.

Most of the roof is on

Another quick photo update... Most of the roof was done today. They had hoped to do it last Thu/Fri, but it rained so didn't happen. I was amazed how much they'd managed to do in one day. The camera on my phone doesn't do it justice, but we stopped by without the dSLR.

Sarking on the roof

The sarking was installed on the roof today. Poor quality photo as it was taken on my mobile.

The guttering was done today. The roof tiles were also delivered.

Brickwork Complete

The brickies finished their work on Thursday, and I went to meet our site supervisor on site on Friday morning. He seemed genuinely interested in our build and was keen to offer help where he could, for example with the home theatre setup where he will remove the noggins and put some additional thick board in for us to screw the plasma on to. Everyone we've met at Wisdom has had a fantastic attitude.

He said he hoped to have the facia, guttering etc in place Mon/Tue and then the roof tiles on after that, so we might have a roof by the end of this week if the weather is good.

A photo of the front of the house (waiting for the cladding to go above the garage still)...

And the back of the house...

For those building an Impression 33, you'll see we've extended the back of the house so it makes a straigh line with the kitchen to give us a bit more space in the living area.

More Nice Weather, More Bricks

The brickies have been making good progress. Most of the left side of the house has been bricked up, and more has been done to the front.
