Then the weatherboards will arrive, some of which Wife and I will paint before they go up, to make things easier later.

The carpenters have promised to use safety harnesses when they put the corrugated iron (tin, colourbond, whatever you want to call it) on (even though they're carpenters not roofers). Apparently safety isn't an issue when they're balancing on a few bits of timber 7m above the concrete to put battens up...that's different somehow!?
The shock was too much for some.

This is a 7m long beam we had engineered. The original plans had a timber post holding up the left mezzanine floor which would have got in the way and annoyed us greatly! As far as I could find out the beam weighs about 35 kg per meter. The carpenter and his mate got this 245 kg lump down the driveway on the little black trolley you can just see in the foreground, then lifted it into place with a manual hoist.
