Cladding is starting to go up around the house. Recycled weatherboards used for the majority of the lightweight cladding, with FC sheeting used in selected areas for visual contrast.

Awnings are going in also, a unique slimline detail carefully designed to maximise the winter sun & eliminate summer sun in all cases.

Mitred corners to the street facade have a more striking affect from the street and are worth the extra labour to construct them.

The cantilevered beam is in place for the retractable screen to the river terrace which, when in place, will add to the flexibility of the space, allowing direct solar gain deep into the building during winter and eliminating it in summer.
