California Construction

Building a house
Building a house,

This is a posting for my dad.

There are two developing going on in our street. This is the earlier stage one. Apart from the foundations all construction in timber. Framing post and stirling board. The stirling board is then skimmed on the outside with plaster. In the near completed house, see next flickr image, they have created massive pillar at the front of the house and covered them to look like brick. But it's just illution of strength as it is just a few 2*2 post taking the weight.

We also got our felt roof tiles, much the same as Mortlich Gardens replaced last week.
