Formwork done ready for concrete

We have just had the formwork done in readiness for the concrete upper slab.

We got to stand up on top of the formwork (with scaffolding in place of course)  the other day and see room sizes and the outlook, it was very exciting.

All going to plan the concrete should be poured in a couple of days and from there we will have the R9WA guys back to do the upstairs walls.

Tin or Tile Roof Dilemma

Shingle roof

Shingle roof

The time has come for us to decide on a roof covering.

For the most part we had decided to use shingle style roof tile but recently we had been contemplating colorbond because of the proximity of the house to the ocean, I’m not sure if this matters as we have had colorbond and tile in the past but only colorbond near the ocean which has and still is perfect.
I think I am still leaning toward tile roof but the trick is now trying to find a tile that looks close enough to actual shingles without looking too modern and that was the look we were going for originally.
If anyone has any opinions I would love to here your views.
