Days 75 & 76: Balcony, Roof Trusses & Scaffolding

22 01 2013

day72-featurepicThere was some work over last weekend on the first floor frame and yesterday (Monday 21/1) saw the first signs of some scaffolding going up.  More scaffolding went up today.  We have also noticed the balcony go up which has made the house feel a little closer to the street.

Spoke to out Site Manager, Simon, today it seems like the fascia and guttering is booked in for Friday and next week should see the roof go up.

Its really good going pass the site and seeing daily progress.  Every day it looks more and more like a shape of a house.

Here are the latest photos taken over the past 2 days.  As I am taking the photos from outside the fence using a 17-55mm lens, I think I will need to bring my 70-200mm lens on my next visit so I can take some close ups. 😉
