Tin lid

A great week with much progress. We had 4 trades work on the house .

Brad Fiori, our favourite plumber, spent a couple of days finishing the pre piping for hot and cold water. Also, the entire waste water pipes and those for number ones and number twos are all in place and ready to be trunked down to the tank farm in the back yard.

Russell Petkovic, from Smart Design Electrical, also worked solidly for two days to pre-cable the main house structure for power and lighting. We are now ready for ceiling and wall cladding inside the main house.

Mick and his team of capable helpers, arrived on the scene and did what is probably the most noticeable part of the construction so far. That is, of course, the Colorbond roof cladding on the main house . Mick, you’ve transformed the place.

Not to be outdone by the other trades, Rick and Corey, from Vander Constructions, put in an appearance and a big effort, to tidy up a few outstanding items pertaining to the roof cladding.

Let’s take a look at a few progress shots.

With the roof all but complete, being such a milestone, the stage is now set for a flurry of activity in the coming weeks. Thanks to everyone who put in the time and effort this week. In particular, Steve Fisher of Contour Builders. As always, he is doing a great job in steering this great project.

  1. Can’t wait to sit on that deck with a cold beverage and nibbling on a handful of AAA (Alek’s Amazing Australian) Olives before dinner and after my afternoon dip!
    It’s easy to see, even from the other side of the world, the care and attention to detail you’ve given this project. Kudos to you all on a fabulous looking house.
    One question though … Does our room have a view of the ocean?

  2. Yes. There is a glimpse of the ocean from your room. There is a good view of the ocean from your balcony, just as there is from your family room.

    The wines have been selected and a fresh jar of olives is waiting to be opened. Come on down enroute to New Zealand. Its just 6 hours out of your way.
