Passionfruit slice and the frame

I took our builders a plate of Passionfruit slice this morning - and while I was there took a few photos of the frame.

The slice is so yum - a crumble biscuit base, and a sticky condensed milk and passionfruit top! I hope they enjoy it!!

Standing in the garage, looking out to where we will have a deck or paved pergola (not sure which yet).

The front of the house - with verandah missing (we will do it ourselves after handover)

The whole front of the house minus garage.

The garage. 
I can't believe how fast they put this together. I took the photos before picking Patrick up from kinder, and 20 mins later when I drove past again to show Patrick, the roof trusses were already on the garage!

The right hand side of the house. 

This guy had a nail gun and was nailing up the roof trusses (I think that is what they are called) but his extension cord wasn't long enough to reach the back end of the house, it was a bit funny watching him tug the cord, and it not getting any longer! I suppose they had to get another extension lead - but we didn't hand around to watch.

The front again, taken from the neighbours block.

When just the slab was down, the house looked really small! Now that the frame is up - the whole house looks huge! I haven't walked through it yet (didn't want to chance a piece of wood falling on me as they were putting up the roof trusses while I was there), but I think I will have to go for a drive late one afternoon after they have finished work, and take a proper sticky beak!
