I haven’t taken the camera out to the site recently (which is laughable, considering we live next door to it) so I’m going to go back a bit in the building history, to aspects I haven’t touched on yet.
We used grader blades for our window lintels. Grader blades are fairly plentiful out here and we’ve been collecting them for a while. They’re ridiculously solid (and equally heavy) and make great supports above the windows.
These photos are of a couple of separate windows and show the different stages. Note that the chicken wire is placed once the temporary frames are removed but before the permanent frames are in place in order to make plastering easier. (The plaster pictured is just the rough coat, to protect the bags.)
