Well, that was quick! The frame and roof trusses are up. Its amazing how our perception of the size of this house changes with each stage. Today, walking through all the rooms, some seemed bigger and others seemed smaller than when we walked through the pencil mark ups.
The house is also so much taller than our neighbours’ houses. Something that is hard to gauge when looking at the Harkaway display homes as they are not in a suburban setting. But I wouldn’t change anything, I love my high ceilings already!
The frame started going up today. Harkaway delivered it to site this morning – apparently the street was closed off to do it (hope the neighbours weren’t too inconvenienced). It should be completed by the end of the week.
Last week after the flooring had been laid, the frame was marked up. We had a bit of fun pretending to knock on the new door, then walk around the house. With all the lines on the floor, it suddenly looked more real.
