Bob the Builder was busy last week and had some friends in with some serious equipment. On Wednesday a man with a small crane came in to place the posts that support the deck at the rear and south side of the house. Most of them are also reclaimed telegraph poles, like the one supporting the roof in the rear section of the building. The timber for the deck also arrived so Bob has put in the beams to support the deck. Not sure when this will be finished but I am already planning to drink G&Ts out there next summer. And it is so big! The west side is 3 metres wide and while it has been built according to the plans, I had no real concept of the size. I find it difficult to visualise things until they are right in front of my nose - I think it's a girl thing. Our job for this week is to contact the guy who will make the sails for the back deck to find out what fittings are needed to attach them to the house. This is not something we have thought about to date so will just contact the guy who made the sails for Mum & Dad's carport. The other thing that we need to get is the shower channel/grate for the ensuite so that Pete can plumb this in.
