27.01.13 - Electrical check. . .

Today we walked through the house (already starting to feel like a house and no longer a building site) and checked all the plates for powerpoints and light switches are in place. We noticed 1 powerpoint missing, 1 near the floor instead of at bench height in the pantry and realised we forgot to include a light switch for the hallway (when you step in from the garage). . .  a very well worth exercise.

We had our first meal in the dining space while working on site today and had our first visitors join us for a tour and the chance to kick back and help us realise what will soon be our house.

Our first meal. . .

25.01.13 - We have a roof . . .

We have a roof!!
I was blown away by the height and the pitch of the roof (soooo high) from inside.

Looking towards master bedroom (front of house to the left) 

Under the alfresco - bricks being cleaned

We have a roof!! 

We meet our Site Supervisor (SS) early this morning on site to sort a lighting location issue. We have a steel beam running right down the middle of the hallway which means we can't have any lights in the centre. So we have to change to 2 rows of lights further apart (an additional 3 downlights I think).

While we were on site today the bricks were being cleaned (can't wait for the bag n paint to happen) and we had a great update with our SS. Next week should be the start of gyprock, insulation, carpenter, water proofing, more from the electrician... it's all happening. We have about 8 or 9 weeks to go until completion.

Our SS is an absolute gem. We are very blessed to have one of the best there is.
