almost at lock up

Things have moved along quite quickly I am very happy to say.

We have some of the plumbing in and water to the block. Our chippy and his team have done an amazing job on the house frame, putting in the windows and some doors etc and some of the outside cladding. Weatherboards have all had a paint job and now just need a touch up and the roof is on.

The rest of the cladding will be done after Christmas now and in the meantime I am going to get stuck into doing as much of the outside painting as I can. I still think I will need to get a painter in to do the higher areas which is a bit of a bummer!

Early January we will have the wiring done, insulation, and make a start on getting the plaster sheets up….

So I am very pleased to be able to show you our progress so far…. Its all looking pretty amazing I reckon.

frame complete

Can you even believe it that the frame is done!!?? They were so quick and today when I called past they had even cleaned up. Everything is absolutely spotless and I am so impressed.

Tomorrow is the frame inspection and I will be busy painting weatherboards with my mum (yep putting her to work!) ready to go up next week. I also need to get up the ladder and get the nail holes filled and a couple of coats of paint on the facia boards at least the ones I can reach. I think the facia on the second story will have to be done by a painter with a cherry picker or something. Anyway we will see when the time comes.

Paint colours have been selected and are below…. Very simple palette and of course lots of white ❀ Can’t wait to get started tomorrow. I only have a few days to get everything done so fingers crossed that the weather will be kind to me!Photo 28-11-2014 4 46 59 pm
