We received our Construction Certificate in early January with many thanks to Professional Certification Group, Wall to Wall Design + Consulting and Skinny Whippet Building Services for helping us reach this milestone. Since then we've been busy digging holes, laying pipes, filling trenches and jackhammering footings.
The last three weeks have been the most rewarding for everyone involved as floors went down and frames went up. Our four homes and two common rooms now have roofs and each day they seem to settle a little more into their landscape.
We keep saying that this is a team effort and we really mean it ...
Chase Burke and Harvey again came to our assistance with a survey for our footing setout. A Man and a Chainsaw removed a large tree to help improve solar access. Fluid Plumbing and Electrical were responsible for all the service connections and will continue to assist with the electrical and plumbing fitout. Surefoot have supplied our footing system, chosen for its flexibility and DIY installation. AusSteel's framing has bolted together perfectly each time making for rapid results.
Watch as The Skills Generator with the Work-for-the-dole participants put up the frames for the two common rooms which will be our lounge and laundry.
