Shoe box and cladding

19 05 2015

Earlier the driveway was all dug up for the plumbing out to stormwater, and new road base brought in to lay down on the driveway so it’s not a boggy mess (we had about 40 ml of rain over the last couple of days).

‘Ironstone’ colorbond cladding has started to appear along the top section of wall above the bales, and on the back of the cupboard spaces in the living area.

The shoe box has also been framed up, roof on and two sides up (the other side will be made of a door and Danpalon panel for light).

I think those yellow LVLs will be painted in a matching colour to the colorbond.

Lock up

11 05 2015

The windows are all in, and the big sliding doors are coming Tuesday so we are just about at lock up. Plus the internal insulation is in, the ceilings are up and most of the internal wall gyprocking is done. It looks like a real house. Paul says the house will look small with walls in, but look big again when furniture goes in. I think it looks big now.

Second Coat Render

30 04 2015

Over three long days (with 6 people working per day), the second coat of render was applied and most of the walls made smooth and the window reveals square.

First Coat Render

23 04 2015

With the help of a spray pump and some trusty helpers, the first coat of render went on in about one and a half days. The recipe was about 40 shovels of red maslin plasterer’s sand, 2 20kg bags of hydrated lime and half a bag of cement.
