House frame is complete

One week has passed and allot have happened at house build. The frame is up and nearly completed except for a few beams in the car-port. Also the roof rafters are on place. So the house will have a hat soon. It feels good to have it weather proof soon before the autumn storms start. It is really fun to walk in the house and you get a good feeling of the spaces and the different rooms. You also see the views from the windows and you can imagine where we will dine and have a lounge area etc.

We have not only been amazed by the speed of the build we have been working at the garden during the weekend and have had VERY nice help from our parents. With out them would there not be any grass sown this weekend. So the hole front side of the house is grass sow I would say that it is about 600-700 square meters off grass. Now is only to wait and see if will grow. After some consideration did we chose Lord Nelson Royal as grass brand. It should suit our garden good because it has a high amount of Festuca rubra variants that is tough grass type.
Next in the build step will be the roofing and then get the windows and doors in so the house is weather proof. It is important to do this as soon a possible because the moister amount in the concrete slab is usually the time stopper in the end. I will try to make weekly reports so you all how are interested can follow the build steps.

It is allways nice to see people work!


House frame build started

Hello All!

Now after the vacations have the build picked up again after 4 weeks of waiting. Before vacation was the concrete slab done and it have cured during the vacation. If you have been following the blog have you seen that we have not been idle we are still making progress on the garden but it is slow. But now when the builders are back and a big pile of wood is deliverd to the build site will it happen things.

The plane is to raise the frame and add cladding with asfaboard to make it weather prof. The house is not a pre-build frame except the roof trusses which are pre-fabricated according to drawings. So there is one big pile of wood that will become the frame and the structure for the second floor. This will take roughly 2-3 weeks to finish. This will be the first time when we see the size  and height of the house. So it is exciting time ahead!

During the vacation have we also added a new member to the family so my wife well be the new build leader because she will be home with the little boy and can oversee the build. It will be a bit hard to let the control go but I have full confidence in here ability to make this good.

My plan is to keep you informed as the build progress and what problems we bump in to during the way, so keep tuned because now will the build pace speed up significantly.
