Stage 1 – Before OJ Pippin Homes started building on the site, a preliminary site inspection of the land was essential to gain a good understanding of the scope of work required, and to avoid any unexpected costs for the client.
Stage 2 – After the site had been cleared, the trenches for the under-slab plumbing is positioned, then the footings and concrete slab poured.
Stage 3 – The carpenters can now get the ground floor structure underway. The lower floor frame is constructed and the structural steel beams and floor joists fixed into place.
Stage 4 – External cladding on the lower level is fastened to the frames as the wall framing and trusses are constructed to the upper level.
Stage 5 – Scaffolding throughout the build keeps our highly skilled carpenters safe and adhere to the QLD safety regulations, also allowing for the second storey framing and trusses to be assembled.
