Work has been patchy over the last three days, with other commitments on Thursday, rain all day Friday and also rain in the afternoon of Saturday too! Erk! We didn’t have any other jobs lined up as we didn’t have the “N” rafter (number 6) installed so we could measure the next set of rafters […]

Starting really early this morning, at round 8:30am, to avoid the incoming thunderstorm front, we went outside to have a go at installing our latest created rafter, this time, the O Ridge that has the 45degrees angled sloping down beam.

This afternoon, we got out our submersible pump and connected up with some 32mm bore plastic pipe to pump the rainwater that has collected in our house, from the last couple of days of rain showers we had. We estimated about 4500 litres of rainwater has fallen, forming a complete “lake” across the whole Floor Slab. […]

Perimeter Wall interrupted by Rain!

 After lunch, because of the rain forecasted to arrive about 4pm to 5pm which made block laying impractical we had to do something else.
