Didn't get to see the slab prep and looks like you have done a bit since I was there last.

Extra blocking out required above top plate and also extra studs as framing wasn't quite correct to blueboard pitch.

Amazing how much of a difference the facias and verandahs make, and no doubt the roof will change it again. At least now you'll have some weather protection for the rest as we head into winter (if your not there already as I sit in shorts and teeeshirt in Penang!! ).
What's next?

Boozer,
Can I suggest you send JNR a PM, then he can be a bit more specific on the finer points to look out for, as I am sure this would be better for all involved.
Regards,
Chris.
