Big week­ends push build along

The Leader (Tasman) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - MUR­RAY LEAN­ING

One of the huge week­ends, last week­end.

More than 20 trades­men worked over the week­end to re­ally push the build along.

The ex­te­rior cladding was fit­ted, Ply­clad from Gun­nersens, to two walls, and Niagara wooden weath­er­board to the other two walls. These are two ab­so­lutely pre­mium prod­ucts, which have not just en­hanced the ap­pear­ance of the home, but have given it fan­tas­tic dura­bil­ity.

Some of the win­dows, sup­plied by De­sign Win­dows have been fit­ted. These are the Klima range of uPVC win­dows, which are ab­so­lutely top spec­i­fi­ca­tion, again.

You re­ally need to check these out – there is an in­ter­view on face­book (@he­li­copter­house­build) with the lo­cal de­sign win­dows team about the ad­van­tages – es­pe­cially the cut­ting edge dou­ble glaz­ing and ther­mal prop­er­ties.

We even had a celebrity here. Nick Matthews from ITAB, who is one of the Build­ing Ap­pren­tice In­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives gave us a week­end of his time – just awe­some.

Lunch was a very special oc­ca­sion on Satur­day too – a full-on, sit-down, roast lunch, catered by Damien Richards and the won­der­ful peo­ple at the Sta­bles, in Rich­mond.

Lovely meal – which the boys ab­so­lutely lapped up, and worked hard to burn off, in the af­ter­noon.

Sun­day was a treat, too, with one of our team, Deb, mak­ing just the best af­ter­noon tea for all the guys on site.

We’ve got to keep these guys strength up – there is still a way to go, but we are on tar­get, and the house is com­ing to­gether su­perbly.

You are wel­come any­time to come down for a look.

Next week­end, we are lin­ing the in­side.

Stop­ping for af­ter­noon tea on site.
