Sub-floor plumbing.

This week the PVC pipes were installed under the house. The white ones are the waste pipes and the pale green pipes are the stormwater pipes. Eventually there will be sub-floor rainwater storage so the stormwater pipes are positioned for future tapping.
Once all the pipes have been placed, sub-floor insulation will be installed then the structural floor sheeting will be placed on top.

Stormwater pipe on the left. Waste water pipe on the right.

The small diameter black pipe is the hot and cold supply water lines.

We received the engineer's updated garage door lintel design today so now the steel can be ordered and the brickwork to the garage can proceed.
Things are moving quickly.
