Well, the weather in Sydney this past week was craptastic at best, to be honest. While we need the rain, we were hoping it’d hold off a week, as the rest of our roof was supposed to be finished by Friday. As you can see from the photos, it isn’t quite finished, but we are close.
I received a call from our site supervisor on Friday to keep us up to date on what’s happening and the current time table (seeing as it seems to always be changing with the terrible weather we’ve had). Would you believe it – assuming we have good weather next week, our house will be water tight (roof and cladding completed), the electrical will be completed, the insulation will be put in, doors installed, and gyprock (dry wall for all you reading from the States)!
I guess I don’t really know when I was expecting this all to happen, but that seems like a lot for a weeks worth of work. If it’s all done, that’d be absolutely fantastic. I mean, as long as roof is finished, they can work inside regardless of the weather outside. I don’t know about you, but that’s a pretty exciting thought for us – especially after the consistently annoying rain delays we’ve experienced.
On Wednesday afternoon we’re set to meet with our site supervisor to have a walk through and inspect the electrical and framework to make sure it’s how we intended. I’m looking forward to this, as we’ll have a ‘guided tour’ of our home rather than looking at it from a distance. I hope it looks as good up close as it does from afar.
So what’s next? Not sure really – I know the stairs aren’t that far off, but what comes after that? Your guess is as good as mine. I’ll be happy enough to get everything done this week that’s scheduled. I’m sure Megan will be too – it’d be a good birthday present for her.
Until next time…
