Finally it looks like the rain has gone away and we have a good stretch of perfect autumn days here in Sydney. Hallelujah!
The block was a hive of activity today with not one, not two but three different trades on site. It certainly feels like our build has kicked into gear.
The roofers were back to finish off the lower roof in the remaining sections of the garage, study, kitchen and butlers pantry. The guys from Insulfix were busy installing the insulation upstairs. These guys worked like machines. When I drove by at 12pm, they hadn’t even started putting in the ceiling batts. At 2pm, the ceiling looked to be done and dusted!
We went with the Metricon standard Bradford Gold R2.0 insulation for the external walls. For the home theatre, we added acoustic sound insulation which hopefully reduces the sound of bad karaoke transmitting through the walls!
The plasterboard have also been delivered and the guys were setting out ready to get started tomorrow! I can’t believe that by the end of the week we will have all internal walls in place! It’s really exciting to see the house transform. We still have a long way to go but I’m starting to see that glimmer of light at the end of what feels like a long tunnel.
Watch this space😄
