Frame just about complete!

The framers have put the top floor walls up -

then the roof trusses were craned up to the top (unbudgetted expense of $150 :-( ), in this picture you can see the trusses lying on top waiting to be erected -

The roof trusses went up in less than a day and the frame was pretty much finished -

Meanwhile the brickie had started the retaining walls that are going to prevent the yard falling under the house -

and I spent a happy day in the rain yesterday core filling all the blocks

Here are the finished core-filled retaining walls -

Today Miss Moneypenny and the Bond Girls came to the block and tested out some colours for the exterior rendering -

We also carefully took the Bond Girls up the ladder to the top floor to have a look round -

The Rumpus Room

The void protection for the entrance hall void -

The master bedroom suite -

I am really hoping the rain holds off this week and we can get the final twiddly bits of the frame finished and get the roof on!!!
