Yes, you could put them everywhere, just in case, couldn't you! I went in with a nail gun on the weekend and put heaps in I might get Andrew (hubby) to do the same when we check if the framers have done all the ones we requested.

We are building a 42 square house with Metricon, plus a 6m x 4m shed and have upgraded all of it Colorbond for $4130 (295m2 total) Does the pricing include the upgrade to roof insulation? They said that when using colorbond as roof, the insulation must be upgraded so you won't hear rain drops and i...

Dropped some beers off to our framers this morning on the way to work... they should be finished the roof trusses today, so we wanted to thank them for getting it all done in a week, and to also wish them a Happy Easter. Going to pop in and see them next Wednesday when I'm off work, to walk through...

Absolutely @stanus, I love driving past each day and seeing new developments. It is going to be hard later in the build when nothing much seem to be changing from the outside.... hopefully we will still be able to sneak inside to keep an eye on progress. Ours was unlocked for the entire build... Pl...

the tradies occasionally forget the doors unlocked (after lock up). It is then sneak in time to have a look! Haha! That will be our plan too! Although I think our site manager that has just taken over for frame until finish, is a bit of a 'hardass'. If we end up finding issues onsite whilst sneakin...

Garden update... Beside our driveway we've planted some giant Agave that we kept from our previous home and re-planted our clyvias that we dug out before the old house was knocked down... Had 1.6 cubic metres of 20mm Deco pebbles delivered and started mulching. I think I'm nearly broken, or at leas...
What a productive weekend! Looking great 👍
