Our House Build - Standing Up The Roof - Part 1
After Friday and Monday were pretty well rained out, progress resumed on-site today! We have the beginnings of the roof trusses being stood up.
Interesting bit of structure in the garage, the three trusses close together I guess because the roof has to be supported this way rather than on the area the doors will cover.
Garage from "behind". We're having some cool sunsets now - it'll be proper post-work-photography season soon!
Living room roof well underway.
This shot just shows the retaining wall/building/eaves and their relationship to one another a bit better than previous shots.
The neighbouring block is coming along well too - looks like their plumbing is down ready for concreters to start doing the crushed rock etc so they will likely only be about a month behind us through the whole process.
Looking forward to seeing even more progress on the roof tomorrow night!
