Week 6: The roof begins. Our Boutique Home. Airlie.

Monday August 24, 2015; Week 6 of our build saw the roof start.  As I did school drop off a crane had just finished placing the roof trusses on the top of the second storey, and by the end of the day I think most of the roof was done.  This week also saw the windows arrive – they are currently stacked in the garage. Friday the 28th of August the garage roof trusses were completed and on Saturday I noticed the front timber support pole was in.  I didn’t get out of the car this week for a close look as it was raining or I was on my way to an event or work or whatever else was on.  A couple of days this week it was pouring rain, but the carpenters were still there slogging away.  My hat goes off to them – cheers boys!!!

It is hard to actually see the roof from the front of the house as it is so high up, but you can see the timber for the eaves poking out.  Hopefully it looks good – as it kind of looks bald at the moment. lol.

The timber support at the front door is a beautiful piece of timber – does seem a shame to box it up.  I’m still interested to see how the eave at the front of the garage will work.

Who has built a double storey – what comes next, roof covering or bricks?  Excited to see more happen.   It’s amazing the difference 6 weeks can make!!!
