Frame is completed

Our house is really starting to take shape now with the frame completed. Hopefully this rain will we can get the bricks and roof on. It is amazing how much bigger it is starting to look now. When the slab was put down we were thinking 'This doesn't look that big' but now it is starting to look how we imagined. We also met our neighbours on the weekend, who served us some amazing turkish coffee. We are very lucky to have such great neighbours!
Framing is underway, this is the front of the house, with Jose in one of his familar poses :)

Frame has arrived

Well after being water-logged for 2 weeks solid, our house frame & windows have arrived! Construction should start tomorrow and hopefully we will have a roof by the end of the week.
