Structural steel work has been designed to support the roof, and as a lintel for the wide door to the living area that forms the front section of the house.  Steel cross-bracing has been used in the roof plane, and the connections can be seen with Intello membrane between, and over to ensure the membrane continuously contains the building envelope. 


INTELLO has been fitted between the roof brace connector and the external structural
element - which in this case,  is the steel frame.
INTELLO has been fitted between the steel lintel beam and the external timber-framing ready for an extension to be taped on that will cover the roof and wall planes.

I am glad that I have observed this blog. Ultimately anything not a crap, which we understand quite usually. The web site is lovingly maintained and up to date. So it really should be, thank you for this welcome transform.

This steel work was clearly planned carefully. I hope to see more photos of it when it’s done. :-) One more thing that made my heart smile is how they are improving houses in New Zealand in order to save the kiwis.

Very true Rodney! The house owner has reflected this is his interview published on the 'Publications' page of this blog.

Nice to see this. Even thought it is quite costly, structural steel does the work and really gives proper support.

04 stainless steel has a high resistance to rust. It withstands corrosion from most oxidizing acids and is often used for kitchen and food applications. However, it is susceptible to corrosion from chloride solutions (notably saline environments with high amounts of sodium chloride). Chloride ions can create localized areas of corrosion, called "pitting," which can spread beneath protective chromium barriers to compromise internal structures. Solutions with as little as 25 ppm of sodium chloride can begin to have a corrosive effect.
