Hospital house back on track

After a month of rainy days, some much-needed sunshine has allowed construction of The House The Coast Built to get back on track. 

The team at QLD Construction & Carpentry dropped everything last week to take advantage of the clear skies, installing the steel frame for the two-story house in Birtinya with help from the crew at Chris Aitkin Crane Hire.

Both businesses jumped on board to help Wishlist and Ausmar Homes to build an affordable accommodation close to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital by providing their materials and labour, free of charge.

Ausmar Homes Construction Manager Sean Fraser said the 6-bedroom house should have a roof by the end of the week if all goes to plan—another major milestone for the community project.

So far, almost 50 local businesses have donated their services to the project which is due for completion in September.

While construction of the house is moving full-steam-ahead, Wishlist are working to fill the house with everything a family might need during their stay at the hospital accommodation facility.
