Wrapped up!

Four weeks since it started, can't believe how quickly it goes up.

Side veiw- garage up this end, alfresco area sticking out the back.

Front veiw- garage has the two small windows, next two are bedrooms 2 & 3, then dining, entry, lounge, master.

Looking into the lounge from the dining area, living room over to the left.

Roof & Windows

Only took a day for the roof to go on.  Looks great!  And top quality Stegbar windows...the salesman we dealt with was the best in the world. We're all pretty impressed that the measurements were correct and the windows actually fit, haha!  (Thanks Dad!)
Front veiw (Thanks to Tracey for the terrific photo!)

Left for work on tuesday with a slab of concrete in the paddock, returned home to find we had a house frame.  Not bad for a day's work. 

Then today they added the alfresco on and almost finished the roof frame, making it all look a lot bigger.  It's pretty exciting to be able to walk through now and see how the layout looks.  (The walk-in pantry is going to be fantastic!).

We have a slab!  And power running to the slab (good job Dave, Brett and Glenn).

The whole family having a slab on the slab.

Roller blading on the slab!

All boxed up ready for the slab pour yesterday.  A lot of polystyrene there!  The workmen arrived before 7, closely followed by five concrete trucks and they were pumping the concrete in before we left for work.  Of course it rained that day, but our rain gauge said only about 2mm.

When we got home that night, we spent about an hour picking up plastic, food wrappers, wire, etc and putting it in the bin.  Not good if it blows into the paddocks and the horses or dogs eat it- Nero does seem to have a taste for plastic bags :-/
