Up up and away!

Well, isn't it just about time that our frames went up! From my count (and memory) I believe that is almost 3 weeks of waiting for these frames to create the very structure that will be our home. We had 3 false starts, 1 two weeks ago, 1 last week and 1 that was meant to be yesterday, but no, the carpenter got held up at another job, AGAIN! Finally though, we had 5 guys on our block first thing to whip up the frames, and whip up they did!

The house went from a slab with bundles of prebuilt frames to a shell of a house in about 9 hours. Halfway through that, I had rocked up to check it all out and ran into the supervisor whom is still confident in us receiving a christmas present from beechwood and that the bricking SHOULD begin at some stage next week! I will continue to have my fingers crossed there. Supervisor reckons that the framing should be finished saturday (if the guys work the saturday) if not monday so should have some finished product photos up then.
