Week 19

Its Week 19 and the rain clouds are crowding around!

A quick update for you all. We finalised all sheeting last week in preparation for the start of plastering, and possibly the tiling this week. With the house progressing  nicely the marketing team have also be busy starting the Innovation House website with the guys at James Cook University. And our artists have  been working their hearts out on the recycling artwork concept. The exhibition of these pieces will open the evening of Friday March 1st. Keep your eyes peeled in your inbox as invitations will be coming soon.

With the end in site it is all starting to become very exciting!

Week 13

Happy New Year! We are on deck and full steam ahead with 2013!

Just before we left for Christmas the house reached Lock Up Stage, which was quite a feat produced by all of the supervisors, tradies and labourers. The house was sheeted, windows in, and wiring almost complete. With all trades due back next week, the internals of the house will next be sheeted. On the last day of work we headed out to the Bunnings Tradestore on Webb Drive to see where some of our materials are coming from for the build of the house. The staff were very helpful and gave a quick tour of  the James Hardie products we were using on that day.

With the first week of the working week almost over for 2013 the team in the office have been busy planning and scheduling the first quarter of the year. The website, opening weekend, competitions, and editable gardens are some of the exciting things coming up!

What are you looking forward to most seeing in the house?
