It’s been a stuttering start to the Magroc roof construction in Parklands between the weather, medical emergencies and head scratching on site progress has been slower than anticipated. The roof panels are slotted over I-beam portals constructed on site. It seemed like a good idea when designing this house but the reality is slotting a panel over a build element is much easier to do on a computer than on site! But now the team from Third Little Pig have got the production line sorted, we will see the balance of the Magroc up this week. Cleverly Simon decided to ask a Joiner to cut all the gusset plates so that the portals can easily be made the same. Below the sequencing of a panel install. Magroc takes a bit more time and accuracy is required but once up we have a lovely clean space and I’m sure the process will be worthwhile. The Magroc achieves a whopping R7.2 which is double the minimum building code requirements. This will definitely help us achieve our goal of net zero energy. Plus we have this fabulous space to live in.
