This three storey house near Picton was finished at the end of 2010.  It is set into the hillside, and commands fantastic views out to Waikawa Bay, especially from the third floor. 
It is made up of a concrete block structure, with the first two floors containing approx 40 tonnes of concrete each.  The vast third floor is a cantilevered design and contains an estimated 120 tonnes of concrete.
So that the construction team could safely work on the timber substructure, the building was surrounded during most of the construction period by a scaffold safety rail and walkway around the exterior perimetre of the propping.  Inside it also had a mass of propping holding the floors in place until the concrete hardened to the required strength.  This takes about six weeks.
