Progress Update: Sixteen
As we draw to the end of week 18 in our build process (which was infact also a short week due to Australia Day) we are amazed at the considerable progress of all our trades. We arrived this morning to gangs of men, utes aplenty and the tools of 17 contractors buzzing around site – each with a task and mission of their own to form part of our overall build.
The (heavy) exterior Pronto Panel cladding is almost fully complete giving the entire building its protective shell. We now have renderers onsite setting the exterior corners, windows and pillars in the pool yard, ready for aluminium safety fencing to be fixed shortly.
However one of the biggest changes of all is the interior plaster board. The entire upstairs has been completed with windows fitting snuggly, cupboard spaces revealing themselves and air conditioning points awaiting units to be installed. We also have our local cabinet maker (Huth Cabinets) installing our custom units and stone waterfall bench Monday week (super exciting)!
Downstairs hobbs’ team has done a cracking job almost completing the install of insulation (not the nicest of jobs) and quickly following has been more plaster and brackets where our false ceiling will be hung to hide all cords in the ceiling.
Oh I almost forgot to mention we’ve had earthmoving equipment here digging 4m holes to place two large bio cycle systems underground. Today the units have been hooked up and the top soil is returning back in place – which will eventually be turfed and act as the outdoor dog park area.
We can’t wait to see what next week will bring with Lauren our painter arriving onsite. Stay tuned.
