External renovations: tidying up the back area. Part four. Finishing.

December 2018 update: Have had final sign off from the local Council. All is finished, tenants are happy.

Have just had the final inspection by the building surveyor. Excellent news, only two very minor things need doing. Neither of which will stop the completion certificate being issued.

Now only the plumbing certificate to be dealt with!!!

It has been a long renovation, nearly two years but finally got there.

Below is a slide show of the carport being built and some of the shed on the right hand side.  We used Advantage builders to build the frame and Launceston Plumbing and Gas to do the box gutter, and storm water. A 15amp outlet has been fitted under carport to facilitate future EV charging.

Now to some of the sustainable detail.

  • Carport roof. Recycled the long lengths of zincalume that came from the dining room roof.
  • Recycled tin from old shed roof in used as detail of underside of box gutter
  • Old hardwood studs from shed used as screen uprights
  • Coloured coversheets of colorbond used as screen insert
