Construction progress - dirt to lockup stage

Excavation started mid March and now, at the end of May, we have a slab, frames, windows, roofing, gutters, bricks, electrical, eaves, and most of the facade complete. We're about to have the Tyrells inspection as well as our own independent inspector check everything. It doesn't look (with our novice eyes) that there are any major issues so crossing fingers, toes and ears, we can get through lock up stage and see that light at the end of the construction tunnel.

Here's a visual diary..


  1. 2 & 1/2 months & you're at lock-up already???? That's amazing. How lucky are you coco?? Hope the rest of the build goes as fast. More importantly, hope you get decent tradies.

  2. It's looking amazing!! So excited for you!

  3. Thanks for the comments guys.. we have to tear ourselves away when we leave now we can see almost-finished product. We are looking at end July-mid August to get the keys (hopefully!).
