Scaffolding is going up to help
with the roof finishing and cladding. The pressure is on to finalise colours!
Ironbark decking is being laid to the rear, fixed with stainless steel nails (pre-drilled) which will fit neatly within the galvanised channel structural border. This new timber (and the roof batten material) comes from managed Australian forests who meet required standards of sustainable practice.
