We have a roof – and some defects rectified

Very exciting today to head out to the block and see that some of the windows and the roof have been added. It is really staring to take shape and look like a house. I am very pleased with our choice of roof now that I can see it in the flesh instead of just a small sample piece. We originally had Surfmist gutters, but changed these to Basalt to match the roof at the last minute. I am really glad we did this as when you stand closer tot he house you can’t actually see the roof, just the gutter and fascia and I like the gutter being dark as it adds a ‘frame’ around the top of the house from below.

We were also able to see that some of the items that were on our Darbecca slab/frame inspection report (see previous blog) have been rectified. There are still more rectifications needed which should happen over the coming weeks.
