The weather's been ideal for building since Monday. No rain, a nice breeze and temperatures around 30 degrees so I was happy to see that we wouldn't be too far behind schedule. The frame work for the walls was meant to be completed by Tuesday (28th February) and the trusses would all be done by Monday (5th March). So you can imagine how surprised I was to get onsite yesterday and to discover that they are right on schedule. We haven't spoken to Mark (building supervisor) but I'm expecting him to call on Friday with a progress report. We shouldn't have any delays but Coral Homes has required their first progress payment and if the bank don't pay it on time then our chippies won't be working until the funds have cleared. Praying every night that there is no problems..
So I thought I'd share some photos with you of what the house looks like. Not long until we have ourselves a roof and work can happen even if it is raining as everyone will be covered.
|The view from the living room, see those pallets I have plans for them.|

|We have four piles of trusses just balancing on the roof, three of them are at the front of the house and the fourth is towards the middle of the house.|
