House Build week 12: Roof goes on!

Week 12 and the roof has gone on!

We are very excited as this is one of the last external changes before the interior of the house gets started. We will keep blogging about the house build but it may not be every week. We don't have access to the inside of the house for health and safety reasons and only get to have meetings with the site supervisor ever 4-6 weeks. Everything shuts up over the Christmas holidays here in Australia so I think we will have to be patient. We are so excited and are like children waiting for Santa. We want to be moving in next week!

Our time scales for the finishing up date are very fraught. Our friends Cathy and Derek arrive for a three week trip on March 25th with their three kids, Alex, Myles and Grace. Our lease runs out in our rental house 3 days later on the 28th and the estimated date for completion of the house is mid-April..... The builders are working slightly ahead of schedule so fingers crossed!!!

Deep breath... and relax... deep breath... and relax... deep breath... and relax!

  2. House looks gi-normous, surely the inside should be finished inside 3 months?
