Concrete Plans Update


You may recall this industrious scene of my neighbour's concrete slab being poured, posted in the lounge two weeks ago.
S8+

Well today my neighbour began erecting the steel frames and I was there to chronicle the building of his house.
E3

Unfortunately my back would not allow me to assist but with ingenuity and gut gripping strength he managed to raise the gable section on his own.
S8+

I could not believe how he managed it working from a 6ft ladder but finally both ends of the truss were in position and ready to be locked on to the frame.
S8+

All that remained to secure the section was to drill three holes at each end and insert the bolts
E3

At the close of another 30C day the house across the road takes shape in silhouette against the sky.
S8+

Re: Concrete Plans Update

Mark, Huw, very hot work indeed, he's been at it all summer working in temps up to high 30's. An architect and builder, certainly among the most able and intelligent people I've ever met.

Re: Concrete Plans Update

As an ex land surveyor, I always found architects to be PITA. And they never wanted to pay the bill...........

But I am sure your man is the exception to the rule.............

Re: Concrete Plans Update

It looks like he got help with the concrete but not the framing. Does he like to work alone or others prefer it that way? Either way, lifting framing up into position is not ideal without help.

Hi Ross, yes, contractors laid the slab but apart from that he cleared the block, dug the entire foundation trenches with a pick and shovel, and now finally is erecting the steel framework, entirely unassisted. I think he does prefer it that way, not just because he doesn't have to hire labour but simply because that's just the guy he is.

Re: Concrete Plans Update

What will the walls be made of - I guess the use of steel as opposed to timber is that the termites have not evolved to eat the steel. ------ Yet ----

Typically steel frame houses has cement sheeting, or cladding & maybe with a timber look moulded texture. That's OK if the walls are filled with 'insulwool' fibreglass batts etc. That was how a house was built for my mother in later years, but then another in the family decided it would look nice with this other cladding over the top, that plastic finish with styrofoam backing. You know what happens to that near flames though? Thankfully someone else owns it now.

Of course, the steel frame house could be brick veneered though.

Termites in Wangaratta is a factor that influences the choice of building materials.
Weatherboards would provide them with a banquet.
In this case the owner / builder has chosen steel for cladding his house,
the same as a large number of houses here are.
Here's an example of the material used on a house next door.

Thanks for that info, Ross.
