After a longer break I finally took some photos at the construction site again! This has two reasons: 1. some (big) things have happened and 2. the construction site never looked so good (in autumn light)! The colors are so strong these days, the leaves in our garden turned red, yellow and orange and the styrodur plates for the insulation shine in a soft pink! (Can’t wait for the withe color of the facade…! :D )
Yes, our house has a really huge hole in the front side now – but no worries – everything is going as planned and the boys will soon start with the walls of the extension. The second (bigger) steal beam is already waiting… Also the new roof is tangible!
Two really exhausting days are behind our busy helpers, because they built the basement for the extension – our future dining room! With temperatures around 30 degrees they shoveled gravel, mixed concrete, transported the gravel with the wheelbarrow and laid bricks. Also Gregor turned out as an important helper… He really loves spending time at the construction site. The boys also taught him a new word: beer! :D Once again they really did a great job!
I’ve always been a person with an eye for details – I’m going through the world with open eyes, especially I’m in love with the “right” colors… So it should be not surprising, that also the color of our future roof is an important detail for me, but not only the color, also the material is a major point for me. I love natural materials, so I desperately wanted a clay roof! The roof of our house is very dominant, so I’ve chosen a plain and timeless roof tile called “Figaro Deluxe” from Tondach and as the facade will be white later and the shutters greyish-green, I think that a grey roof matches best. But grey is not simple grey! I’ve ordered three samples in different colors of my requested tile – granit, basalt and black and we (yes, my Mister also has a right to a say ;)) have chosen basalt (the middle one on the picture). So as soon as the boys have removed the old and ugly eternit panels the craftsmen can start!
We have not only the best friends, we also have the strongest friends! Yesterday the 285 kg heavy steel beam for the wall between the kitchen and the living room (a double sliding door will be installed there later) was delivered and eight of the boys brought it at the right place! Thanks, guys!
Gregor really enjoys spending time outside and he loves garden work! This morning – before the big heat – we visited Gregor’s uncle Roman and his girlfriend Jenny in their large vegetable garden and Gregor was so busy – watering, digging and of course picking tomatoes and flowers! ;)
