(Sorry about the title, surely you were expecting that at some point?)
Every time I thought the roof carpenters had finished, they’d return the next day and add yet more timbers to the roof. I’m a little bit surprised at how much timber there actually is up there.
But they did eventually finish, so now we have roof timbers, fascia, and eaves! Without further ado, here’s a tour.
Front facade, with gable! We decided not to put eaves over the garage, I thought it gave the house a more interesting frontage. Plus, there was no added value in terms of thermal efficiency.
Some of the boxing out that has been done in the entry, looking towards the front door.
We have eaves, around all sides of the house. This is the zig zaggy side.
And eaves around the alfresco, where it looks interesting.
If you stand in the corridor and look up, you can see the zig zag ridges of the roof line.
All sorts of crazy joins happening here. I think this is the highest point of the roof.
It’s a bit hard to tell from this photo, but this is looking up from the laundry. There seems to be a decent amount of room for a future attic, which we are planning to access from the laundry.
Looking up from the kitchen towards the library.
View of the alfresco from the back of the block. Looking nice and solid.
View of the living area from the back of the block. You can see the cross-timbers now.
Lots of timber.
Looking up at the timber in the living area, from the bar.
Looking up from the garage. You can barely see the steel beams anymore!
Next week, we’re supposed to be getting some gutters and the roof sheets will be delivered, ready for installation after the long weekend.
For those who are curious, a quick reminder of our exterior steel colours:
- Roof & gutters: Surfmist
- Fascia: Monument
