Week 20

Week 20 and its tiles, previews, gallery openings and rain!

Our recycled tiles arrived on site this week and the boys are have been setting up, and laying.  These particular tiles were sourced by NQ Tile Styles. The EcoMML tile comes from Malaysia and is their first ‘green’ tile. If you’d like to find out what makes it green, you can find out more information at http://www.mymml.com/eco.asp

Our second round of interviews started this week with Gareth and Rachel taking Darren out to site to start and recording his thoughts on the house, and its progression from initial concept to week 20, to what he hopes the house will achieve.

To finish our week off we have the supplier preview this Friday afternoon, as well as our exhibition opening at Studio2 Friday night!! The exhibition opens 7pm Friday 1st March at Studio2, 486 – 488 Flinders Street West Townsville Qld 4810

The rain has also decided to join us, which makes for a fun dance. Enjoy the ‘in progress’ shots below.

Week 8

We have officially reached the 2 month mark with construction of the house this week! And it has been full steam ahead since we began on Monday 15th October, that we are in fact a week early in our timeline.

This week has seen the continued installing of all of our monitoring and sensor equipment. Being an essential part of the reporting and data collection process this is a very important stage. Michael from AV Design in Townsville has been instrumental in helping us set up and organise all of this equipment. He and Darren are being interviewed this week about this process by the Townsville Bulletin, so keep an eye on in Saturday’s paper for them.

Also this week Bunnings hosted a BBQ at the house as a bit of a celebration, but also to introduce their staff to the house, and educate them on the type of products we are using in construction.

At this stage we may very well be at lock up before Christmas!

Have a good week.
