Day 34: First week of framing

We have reached the end of the first week of framing and a lot has been achieved.  The garage is now underway.  You can see, in the image below, the front double garage opening (4800mm) along with a single width opening (2400mm) at the rear.  This will give us a lot of flexibility in the future for access to the rear of the property.  We have also added two metres to the width of the garage.  You can see this from the frame section to the right of the double opening.  This makes the total internal width of the garage to be 7500mm.  Plenty of room for a work bench, shelving (and most importantly) a fridge!

The rear part of the ground floor has been erected.  If you look at the image below you can see the wide kitchen window opening through the rear door of the garage along with the laundry door.

And finally, our windows have arrived!  We selected “Monument” as the colour for  our aluminium windows throughout the house.  I’m not 100% happy with them dumped in the front (you never know what constitutes peoples “fun” these days!), hopefully they will make it through the weekend unscathed.

Looking forward to next weeks progress!
