Day 253: Full frontal exposure

18 07 2013

The scaffolding has come down and we can finally see our beautiful house from the street in full frontal.  Doesn’t it look pretty. 🙂

The gables are now how they should be.  When they were first installed there was no recess.

Looking good guys, but did notice you will need an off-road vehicle to get to garage. When does the driveway go in??

Hi Andrew, Unfortunately, the house doesn’t come with an off-road vehicle 😦 . Might need to speak to Metricon about that.

The driveway will be done as part of our landscaping which we hope to start almost after handover. But the landscaping may take 2-3 months to complete, so we will probably be parking on the street initially.

Hi,
Can I ask what you mean by no recesses in the gables? Did they butt all the timber next to each other? I am building the same house and have found your blog very helpful.

Regards,

John Tesoriero.

Hi John,

What I meant is that the facia around the gables whould be set forward. When it was first installed the facia and gables were flushed.

If you look at one of our older blog photos and compared to the latest one of the gables you can see what I mean.

Here’s an old one – https://ournolan.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/day142-7.jpg

Chris,
I see what you mean. What a cock-up. They actually forgot to install my garage gable completely. It was picked up before roof tiling but a bit unnerving none the less. Can I ask what kind of faults your inspector has been picking up (gable aside) and any other issues you have had.

Regards,

John Tesoriero.

Hi John,

The gable issue was actually picked up by our Site Manager. In regards to faults, our inspector picked up various different issues, many of which are technical and to do with building standards. But so far nothing that couldn’t be fixed/rectified.
