The client, being an owner builder, found it too hard and needed my services to frame up the rooms, organise the truss and window manufacture and install. We also did the roofing, flashing and guttering. Finally, we did the cladding, insulation and internal sheeting in MDF after his building inspector had inspected our works.
The challenges of the whole job was the height and access to the place. We had to use safety harnesses all the time, as well as adopt other safety measures. I take personal safety, as well as the safety of others, very seriously – always have.
Mission accomplished, work done and no incidents. The client saved on scaffolding costs big time. Work can be done safely with the right mentality and skill.
I framed up the trusses for a builder who didn’t really like heights. Anyway this was his house so I and a friend helped out. This work was done around 2002 I think.
