Lofty, complete with mirror ball, got a workout this morning lifting the recycled laminated hardwood joists for denailing. Oliver is very excited to be pulling out nails again and Eoin denailing too and ensuring the nails are straight, for possible reuse.

Waterproofing membranes and drainage cells are installed to front entry area as well as physical termite barrier.

River terrace slab

After delays due to forecast storms, the rear lower slab was finally poured using the Magnesium Oxide. The additional aggregate for the final terrazzo-like finish made the mix a challenge to pump. In the end, human power prevailed. The slab has been sealed and won't be ground and polished until it is well protected by the floor above.

Blockwork walls to the front have been core-filled with magnesium oxide concrete mix. Blockwork walls to the lower level will begin today.

Once approval from our clients is given for the varied colours of bluestone, sourced from Yatala, the stone walls will start.
