Finally some action on the block!
Yesterday saw the start of the scaffolding finally coming down now the main roof is complete. It has been re-erected around the back of the house for the lower alfresco and leisure room roofs. It will also go up at the front for the garage roof.
So here it is:
Our neighbours roofs have gone on this week so now our side of the street all have their hats on 🙂
It feels like not a lot of action for us this month after a very good start by Wisdom. The main roof went on four weeks ago today and since then we have waited, and waited, and …
In the mean time they have painted the eaves, installed the down pipes to the first floor, painted them, then acid washed the first floor bricks. I did ask if temporary downpipes would be installed when the gutters went up in June in order to protect the slab but was told the actual downpipes would be fitted quickly and there was no need. I believe the Australian Standard AS2870 says that once the roof is in place temporary downpipes should be installed.
We did have an on-site meeting with Wisdom Landscaping last week which centred around storm water drainage and the rain garden with a side order of paths and the driveway. My next post will be about the rain garden – again. If ever they have any questions about it in a pub quiz I’ll do well. 🙂
Stay tuned for more than you’ll ever want to know about storm water detention and the Hills Council rain garden workings…
Next up is the electrical rough in at the beginning of August once the lower roofs are completed.
