Yay we have a roof! Wednesday saw the 95% of the roof go up - My dad managed to get out there during the day for us and found there were 12 guys on site getting it done!! Now that's how you do it!! Apparantely just a little more ridge capping to go on and we are done!!

Now to just wait for the bricks - have a feeling that it is going to be a bit of a wait - we are being told at least 2 weeks but realistically I am probably expecting 4 weeks. Hopefully the rain will have slowed down by then.

Will get some pics up on the weekend.

Seeing the roof go up and the house taking shape I am realising just how much the garage will take up the front of the house - hope that we have made the right choice with the colour of our garage doors!


  1. Can't wait to see the pics. I might have to drive by on the way home just to have a look. Glad things are moving along nicely for you.

  2. Thanks Min :) Hope this rains clears up soon so we can see your place framed!!



thanks for stopping by!
