* Approximately one third of all homes in Australia contain asbestos products. If your house was built before 1990, it is likely that it would have some asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos or asbestos-containing materials could be found in the following areas:• roofing and gutters• gables and eaves• walls• vinyl, carpet and tile underlay• Lining behind wall tiles• fencing• sheds• splashbacks in wet areas• some window putty• expansion joints• packing under beams + Depending on the location of your extension in relation to your existing property, the framing requirements to prepare the existing framing to tie into the new extension framing can vary. In the example of the downloadable plan (AVAILABLE HERE) above, the roof line requires a new Valley rafter to be installed, new structural Strutting beams (As Per Engineers specifications), and the ridge to intersect with the existing roof lines Hip Rafter. Special care should be taken to ensure all the new roof framing is tied down in compliance with AS1684 and engineers specifications.
