Taking shape now...

Went to the house today and the frame is finished, windows are in and the fascia and gutter is installed. Roofer will start Monday, and brickie the following Monday.

With the windows in, the house is really taking shape. The only concern I have is with the main window that takes up most of the hallway entrance. The drawings had 3 mullions shown and the window manufacturer has made it up with 4 mullions, which means the glass panels are narrower. I may also get a commercial window suite made up so the whole window can be glass, with a butt joint down the middle of the two panes of glass, and no mullions whatsoever. This obviously will be an extra cost, but it may be well worth it for the asthetics.

I'll put some photos up shortly.

I am aiming to get in by Christmas - fingers crossed !


  1. The place looks great. I have seen the place go up and I'm quite impressed. I'm just about to buy the last block (for now) on the street.
    I have a few questions but I'd like to know your builder. Also everything you looked into prior to buying your land and finding a builder. They're asking a bit for the land but I have a feeling it's going to worth it. Look forward to watching your progress.

  2. I am looking forward to watching my progress also !

    I designed the house and I'm also building it. I work for the builder so I'm building it through the company.

    I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, just give me a call in the office (the number is on the sign at the front of the house).

    The area is pricey and I could have bought land cheaper, but when you stack everything up it is well worth it.
