Roof and other happenings !

Long time, no update.  We're still moving along nicely and now have our roof up!  Out of all the days to rain, it had to be Friday last week when our roof was booked in to be done.  We had the fascia/gutters done last Monday and then nothing (yes, nothing!) happened at the house for the rest of the week.  Yesterday it was back to work and the roof was done.  Pictures of the finished frame and roof below - apologies for the terrible quality iPhone pictures of the roof.  For those of you with a keen eye, yes it is Trimdek roofing (normal colorbond is just so much nicer!) as the pitch on the high side is 8 degrees and the low side only 3 degrees hence the need for Trimdek to stop water building up and flooding the roof.  Looking forward to seeing what this week brings....

My favourite part of the house - the 4m high entry way - can't wait to see this finished!

 
Slowly starting to take shape


I love this picture - the sun creating the shadows makes it look so crazy!

Ah, that is awesome. I like it! If it can protect you from rain it's a house!

Coming along fantastically Em!! That entrance way is going to be jaw dropping! Great design, I love it! Fingers crossed it continues pumping along.

Thanks girls! It's certainly starting to look a bit more house like which is exciting. I agree Lauren, I would happily pitch a tent and live in it the way it is for the time being haha!

It can definitely be frustrating when construction is delayed for so long by bad weather! But now that work has re-commenced, your home is really starting to come together! I’ve always found that, even though the main structure isn’t quite done, once the roof is up, it really starts to look and feel like a house. Sometimes, I’m more excited about the roof than I am about the walls, haha! Good luck with the rest of the construction! Hope bad weather doesn’t delay progress again!

Your metal roof no doubt fits right in this project’s existing architecture and style. Metal roofs nowadays are coated with layers of protective barriers that lock out moisture, water and block harmful UV rays. This kind of roofing not only protects our home from elements of nature, but also it reflects heat during summer and insulates homes in winter.

I agree with Noreen. It is definitely frustrating when the construction comes into a halt because of extreme weather conditions most especially, if your plan is laid out and you expect to finish the job on a certain date. All of the planning would come to waste if that happens. But, we can't do anything about it. All we can do is move on and finish the task at hand.
