Roofing and Rendering!

This week has been all about the roofing and rendering which was a pleasant surprise as I wasn't expecting the rendering to be going on this week.

The bricking finished off at the end of last week and has been beautifully finished, the white mortar on the dark bricks has turned out really well!

At the end of the week they did the fascia and put the guttering up.

Then this week the roofing went up, mostly in a day there are just a couple of bits on the front that still need to up but it's mostly done!

And then today I went by and the rendering was done and it's looking amazing! The render was the one thing I was most worried about colour wise as it's such a small sample that they give you but it turned out really well!

The only part that hasn't been rendered is this wall inside the portico ... I'm not sure why as yet but I'll chat with our Site Supervisor on Monday and see what is happening there.  I also need to ask him about the extra noggins that where meant to go in for the TV mounts.
They have also started running the internal electrical as well ... so it's been a big week!


  1. What a great progress on your house, Kimberley! Your contractors worked to meet your expectations and even surpassed them at times. Building a house is definitely one of the most exciting phases of marriage. And, checking your most recent post, I am glad to hear that you finally built yours. Congratulations!

  2. I had doubts with going dark on both the roof and bricks, but it looks amazing so far. I guess the white mortar made for a good design against the whole dark facade. Have fun in your new home!

  3. Your choice of material and color for your walls and roof made the house look, though dark, a little intriguing. By the way, it's good to hear that your contractors did a great job and accomplished tasks one after the other in a timely manner. I bet you're enjoying your own space right now. Congratulations!
