It’s hard to believe that October is already here. For the Lambies, it’s been full steam ahead in their pursuit of bringing their dream home to life. It’s clear that the team at KR Projects and their chosen providers are on track and ready to end 2023 on a high. We sat down with Pat and Kate to find out where they’re at. Here’s what they shared with us.
“At the end of July, we reached a pretty big milestone. The first floor slab’s concrete was poured… 68.5 cubes of concrete to be exact. This level now serves as the ceiling to our kitchen/dining/lounge below, and the floor to our bedrooms. This was the perfect platform to take our bricks up to roof height. Red, blue and white pipes were laid for gas, plumbing and electrical, which now sit inside that concrete slab, all held together by just over 5 tons of steel reinforcing.”
“After chatting to our team, we decided that an aluminium roof sheet would better protect against corrosion in an environment like ours that’s close to the sea. The colour we chose was as per our renders… a light grey. We also decided that some of the bedroom ceilings would have exposed trusses. Kate likes a clean white look and Karl (builder) and Greg (supplier from Seacon roofing) are in support!”
“We met with Greg and Marius from C&C Plumbing Solutions to finalize the positions of our tap mixers, shower roses, toilets and basins. Once the roof goes on, C&C will install all the in-wall fixtures for our sanware i.e.. the cistern’s, pipes & mixers that are concealed within the brickwork.”
“It was time for some details so we met with the team at Hannah + Holl, who have been amazing in helping us piece together our interior design elements. Measurements down to the last centimetre of our kitchen, scullery and bar area have all been taken. This detail was then plugged into the 3D computer model Jess has built for House Lambie, allowing us to understand the feel of our internal spaces. Head to Instagram for a look at the video.”
“Our target date for the roof being on House Lambie was October. Knowing how the building process can go, we’re delighted to say we met our goal! A roof on our home makes everything seem so much closer and we look forward to adding even more details to our home now that we’ve got a roof over our heads…”
“We are officially under way with our swimming pool. It has been dug out, will be built up with concrete, and then finished with marbelite. Water will only go in once the grass is laid in the new year but it’s been amazing to see the outdoor portion of House Lambie coming to life as well. We know we’ll be spending loads of time in our pool with the boys.”
