So, I'm back at it now that the temperatures are a little cooler and invigorating. This is the backside of some commercial buildings along Bank Street in the Glebe. The walls have been strapped with pipes and wires and contain air conditioner units, vents phone boxes and electrical stacks. Despite it all it has a sort of urban charm and sitting out on the apartment balconies would offer green views up the middle of the residential block.

As I walk my friend and do my errands I always enjoy these glimpses into the heart of the blocks where large trees have been allowed to grow and the rear of homes tells the storey of incremental additions.

Phoenix Glass and Aluminium brought in a hydraulic lift to raise the aluminium frame into place yesterday and today put in the glass. These machines are incredible and it seem to be easy to learn how to use. Like a lot of the increasing mechanisation in construction, the efficiencies and safety make it well worth renting the equipment.
