The house sans-roof

Here it is - our roof-less house. The sunshine beaming into all the rooms is actually quite lovely, but the thought of rain makes me shudder ... and apparently it is coming tomorrow.

We've actually had a bit of a setback this week. The roof trusses have been sitting on site for a few weeks now and were lifted on to the roof on Monday, only for the carpenters to find out the measurements were ALL WRONG! We were hoping for the roof to be finished (colourbond and all) by the end of next week, however it's now looking like the week after next. All of the trusses have to be re-made and then craned up again ... luckily it was the truss company's error, so they will be paying for the additional crane hire. Which is not cheap, I may be in the wrong business!

Anyway, the boys managed to get the new walls for the dining, living and kitchen all stood at the back of the house, and they also put all of the new posts to the front verandah in. So all in all it's not been a completely wasted week.

I'm off to keep praying for continued sunshine ...

 One very large skylight in the lounge - quite a nice view really!
