They say you can build a house in any weather.
Well I am not completely convinced of that.
In December we saw the land cleared, block cut, the pegging’s and footings going in, and the plumbing being installed. The weather was a little up and down but it didn’t really halt progress as much as it has in January.
Over the last 4 weeks the team have been busy putting the frames together and putting them up. A lot of time had been spent physically moving the wood delivered to a safer and dryer location on the block but still the wet weather has caused significant problems – one of which includes some of the wood having to be replaced due to it bending after extreme heat and rain got to it.
The fact is that we are now working a little behind schedule but I like to remain positive about this whole experience.
For Simon, who is a an owner/builder really getting his hands dirty, I think the best part of this process is spending so much time with his family on both the site and also in the mountains.
