We have never built a house before and really want to follow the progress and know what is going to happen next and learn from the experience. At this stage all we learn is what we observe on drive bys and from what other people put on their blogs. Then we get an invoice. The house behind us is a few weeks ahead of ours. So bascially whatever happens at theirs we know will soon be happening at ours. The houses either side of us are coming along too. Fences are in, land is cleared, slabs are in, frames are starting. Some of these are single storeys so they will probably be built before ours, which will be good to have extra people actually living in the neighbourhood.
|The Bottom Storey almost finished on 17/8/11. Still the garage to do and the right side of house.|
|The back of the house on the 17/8/11 . Again still bits to go and the laundry door to the right has not been bricked yet nor the door installed??? The supports for the Alfresco are ready to go too. Lots of bricks there.|
The house is looking great though...each visit is excting trying to find out what has been done.Dad goes past everyday just about. Mum goes every Wednesday after taking D3 to dancing at Kellyville Ridge with The Principal Dance Company, with the wonderful Miss Jess. D3 loves it. You can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org or www.facebook.com/thepdc if you want to do dancing locally. Hopefully they can move into The Ponds new community centre by the time our house is built so it is even closer to home??
|This was exactly one week later. The scaffolding is up but there are still areas that have not been finished. Would love to know the technical reason for leaving certain areas. Anyone want to let us know from their build?|
|This is on the 24/8/11. The scaffold is up. The lintels under the windows finished, but the garage and laundry still have more to go. Think they are waiting on more bricks?|
Check it out!
So that is it for now. Hopefully next week we can do a blog showing our completed brickwork..then a roof andf gutters...well that is our guess and it is as good as any!
Might get mum to do some tile blogs, or dad to do some landscaping ones. Stay tuned.
Over and out!
