Reservoir House takes shape

The wall panels for our next project in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir were installed last week, with the form of the house quickly taking shape on top of the lower brick garage level.

The plywood inner faces of our wall panels have been detailed as an exposed finish throughout the rear of the house, with the panel faces being sealed with a white-pigmented oil. This protects the plywood against any moisture exposure during construction, although with the roof panels having been delivered and installed on Monday, the house is already basically weatherproof.

The resident chooks remain generally unfazed by the changes around them.
