Happy, simply SA Erected!

AAEV Day 05 (5)In just one day it was like we turned a trailer into a house… Thanks to the hard work and precision of people over the weekend who finished all the frames and floor, today was finally the big moment to erect the structure! See timelapse footage from the past two days at the end of the blog…

It started with the big wall on the back…

AAEV Day 05 (1) And we soon added the front frame and end frames slotting them in to the millimetre (well done Julian and weekend frame building team)…

AAEV Day 05 (3)By the end of the day we even started measuring doors and windows and it now even has two front windows (but nothing else!).

AAEV Day 05 (6)Tomorrow will see the students from Heathfield High School back on site where we hope they will see the roof go on and maybe some outside cladding…!

Great to have more new people on the build today including Patrick (pictured holding window) who was over from Aotearoa New Zealand and was an important part of the Happy, simply home in NZ last year.

Big thanks to Charlie and Cam today who were our building experts, advice givers, skill sharers and just wonderful people who gave their time to come and share and teach others about how to build a home with your own hands – it is just a fantastic feeling to receive that kind of learning!

And the timelapse camera from the past two days…
