It feels like forever since my last build update when I shared news of our roof being completed more than a couple of weeks ago. I had high hopes of being at lock up right now but the trades lined up to do the flashing work were a no show for a few days which unfortunately had a knock-on effect on the building schedule.
So, what’s new I hear you ask?
The balustrade walls of the master bedroom balcony are finally up and been given a coat of waterproofing sealant. These walls will be cladded in Scyon Matrix panels.
The eaves are done and they look fantastic! I’m so glad we decided to extend the eaves all the way around the upper storey. Apart from the thermal benefits, I think the wider eaves finish the roofline very nicely.
The carpenters also started on the cladding work and so far I’m excited by what I see. The Scyon Stria was actually a last minute variation and hopefully it was the right choice to complement the contemporary style of the house.
I also noticed the downpipes had been installed. We went for the rectangular profile downpipes so unless my eyes deceive me the ones we got are the wrong ones! Guess who’s going to get a phone call first thing tomorrow morning? Arrrgh!!!
