Weekly update on the building work...

Well my neighbour reckoned the roof would be going on the 7 little townhouses next, but he was wrong... 
Instead insulation sheets were stapled to the framework of the walls...



 And you would remember my little altercation with that rapscallion scaffolder...
Luckily the only damage was a piece of geranium got broken off...
 This must be the backdoor the house near the front of our property...
 Here I'm looking through the gap between those houses at the front and the one house built adjacent to our backyard...
 
Then coming along behind the insulation tradies were the builders putting on the cladding sheets...this appears to be a long laborious task...

Now I've walked down the front of our property and am looking across the front of the complex. You can see the framework for the roof on their front balconies...

 The photo below was taken looking out the window of the little bedroom that we use as an office...as you can see, they have started putting the insulation on the top (3rd) level of the townhouse...

Very ordinary aluminium sliding windows...


 Lots of reflections, but you can see how high the scaffolding has 'grown'...

Another view from the front of our place ...we can see the sliding door on to their balcony...

 I took the photos below to show just how high the scaffolding has got...it's a front view taken from the footpath...

Looking along the street...

And even further along the street...

All of the houses have the front doors hung now...all identical...
This photo is looking into the black hole that is the ground level garage...
So there we are...progress up to last Sunday...well Friday actually but I took most of the photos about lunchtime Sunday.

Wow Maria ... where will all your privacy be? Petal is home again and starting to look so much better. Thought I'd let you know that I'm still around, popping in here and there to say hello. Cheers Sue.

It’s an enormous residential project. Is it finished yet? I hope they have a timetable and that they follow it strictly. Seeing how these scaffolds can be dangerous to other residents of the area worries me. I hope they use safety gear and put warnings.
