We have a roof

Have you noticed a recurring theme of unadulterated excitement in my last few posts? Well this post is no different. In fact, it’s fair to say my excitement level has just reached new heights! Awesome readers, our Hudson now has a roof and it friggin looks amazing!

I can’t even begin to articulate how wonderful it feels to see our vision slowly come to fruition. I know they are only roof tiles so am I crazy to feel euphoria over seeing such mundane materials on our house?





Shiny things called ‘sarking’


Render work is superb! Clean, sharp lines. Huge tick!

They started cleaning the bricks and they have come up beautifully! Love love love!!!

The carpenters were supposed to start on eaves and cladding work this week but unfortunately they have been pushed back to next Tuesday (31/3) due to a delay in flashing work. With Easter right around the corner, I really hope we can get the exterior completed next week. The scaffolding is booked to come down when trades return from the Easter long weekend. I can’t wait for the unveiling!

      Thanks Lauren. We’re so close to lock up yet it still feels so far! The weather hasn’t helped with rain forecast for the rest of the week. Arrgh😢

    Hi Sheilzy

    Will you be getting whirly birds installed by metricon or after hand over? Did you include to have eave ventilation points?

    • Sheilzy says:

      Hi Abby, we thought about getting whirly birds installed by Metricon but decided to do them after handover. Didn’t include eave ventilation and to be honest I’ve not heard of them until now. Are you building with Metricon?

      • Abby says:

        Hi Sheilzy, Yes we are building with Metricon a Glendale. We can’t decide whether we should put sarking or not cause then we have to put whirly birds. Do you by any chance remember how much they quoted you for 1 or 3 W.birds? Thanks in advance.
