Re: We have lift-off!

All go today!
We had a crane on-site to lift beams into place. Naturally I couldn't resist putting my GoPro on the lifting head :wink:
Here's a still from the video giving you an awesome birds-eye view of our project.

Hey @marthasimons,
The boards that are still white/grey will all be undercover. The project is mainly creating a big all-weather outdoor living space.
We used the HardieDeck system which is just awesome to install & has a really cool finished look. I used them on another project which you can see here.

Re: We have lift-off!

Hey everyone... well I've been very quite of late & you'll see why...
Made awesome progress on our reno. Slowed down a bit now, don't you hate budgets... but hope to get at least the deck useable by Christmas.

Well, after crazy-long delays for the smallest of reasons we finally have our outdoor living space finished! We had it all styled-up for a photo shoot so looked awesome.


Sadly the rest of the renos have come to a grinding halt due to, shall we say, budgetary constraints, but we'll get there eventually!
