Day 42: Framing

22 12 2012

Today the fabulous framers were hard at work resulting in half of the ground floor frame going up. We got butterflies when we went to the block. Seeing the house gaining height and the rooms taking shape makes it finally start to feel like our home. While there is a long way to go, all our planning and waiting is paying off. We also realised that the house is going to be bloody big!!! This will be a welcome relief from the current shoe box scenario that we have been living in for the last 12 months. The plan is for the ground floor frame to be complete prior to Christmas. Going by the amount of progress made yesterday we still think this may actaully happen, fingers crossed.

The side that has been put up is the left of the building (looking from the front) which contains the study, family and rumpus rooms as well as the garage.

View from the side from the neighbour’s garden – you can see the door from the garage into the house.

Looking good that progress has been made, so at last you know that in 2013 you will be able to mvoe into your new place and celebrate Christmas in your new home.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and put behind all those pesky challenges that caused 2012 Chirstmas to not be here 😦
