Dirt + Rain = Mud

The backyard blitz work on our front garden is going well, despite the constant drizzle and ambitious nature of the project. At the moment all the grass has been cleared and the garden beds are being built. Tomorrow morning we are heading to Flemington markets to buy some more roses, hedges and hopefully some edging sandstone to complete the project.

Then I have to re-lay all the turf that I dug up around the back. With another day or rain promised (in fact a whole week) it should continue to be a very messy process.

Roof Replacement


Tiles going on

Originally uploaded by Scott Savage

Today our roof is being replaced. I have uploaded a few photos of the work in progress. Work includes removing the old tiles, removing the old timber battens, the builders jacking up and supporting the roof beams in a few sagging places, putting in pink batt insulation, putting on the sisilation, putting on the new battens, putting in the new valleys, trimming the barge boards to fit the new tiles and finally cutting and laying the new tiles! It feels cooler in here already, and hopefully no leaks! The next thing is to look at fixing up the iron on the back of the roof, but this will involve putting in some more timber in the roof and unfortunately more expense. This year has to be a big year of saving!
