Roof frame started

Roof framing started last week and they seem to be making steady progress. There are actually 3 separate roofs on the house. The first 2 are almost framed. I think they are waiting on the welder to come back from holidays for the third roof...it still needs a couple more metal beams apparently.

From the eastern side...

A "perty" rainbow when we were at the house the other day...And today (Thursday 21st) the excavator was back to back fill at the rear of the house. The way they've done it, most of the water should collect at the back of the flat area and run along there. Now we just have to work out what to plant here???

Thanks Mrs B and Michelle. I have to admit that we sometimes don't even notice the mountain...but then I have days when I just go and sit on the deck and take in the views in the peace and quiet, because I know it won't be that peaceful once we move in!
