Garage, trusses and roof went up this week, plus balcony floor, additional plumbing and work continued in pre-painting and plastering. Brick left overs from the site were retained and we arranged for them to be moved to a good spot at the rear of the property. We have almost enough bricks for an extension (just kidding) but we should have more than enough for 3 brick posts and outdoor room perimeter walls, which we plan to do after handover.
The Roof plumber mentioned that the steel roofing system is fantastic, very strong, undermount system which is meant to be cyclone proof. Luckily this is Melbourne so I guessing we wont have a chance to test it.
Looks like well have enough spare bricks 50ml and 100ml for an extension (just kidding). Its amazing how the simple act of installing the garage roof adds a whole new dimension to the property. Because its a 3 car garage or 2 plus storeroom, it make a massive space. After all how many so called 2 car garages can fit two cars in them? I'm guessing none, because people fill them up with crapola. We already have a medium sized shed down the back corner so this space will be clean and clear(he thinks).
