Engineering plans are done - woohoo!

After the planning permit for the new house was approved in September, we decided to bite the bullet and get the Structural Engineering Plans drawn up.

We had originally planned to use someone local in Maryborough, but they seemed reluctant to take on any new work. So, after several failed attempts at getting them to engage, we gave up and found someone in Melbourne instead.

The firm who helped us out were recommended by Eric, our architect, and they turned out to be great. Not only did they get the work done pretty much on deadline, compared to other quotes we had they were very reasonable too. So, if you're looking for a structural engineer in Victoria, I recommend them: John Gardner & Associates.

You can see the plans below. (I warn you it is *scintillating* reading - NOT).

PART 1: S1 to S6

8093 - S1 to S6

PART 2: S7 to S12

8093 - S7 to S12

And if that wasn't enough... there is PART 3: 73 whole pages full of computations.
