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

upper floor

Despite the huge amount of rain we had our super tradies kept on working and suddenly we had a second storey! It looks sooooo big from outside on the ground but the upstairs rooms seem small… but I know once the sheeting is done it will all change again. The images below are the view from the front and the back. SJA_1084 SJA_1080-EditSJA_1082I am really enjoying watching it grow!

we have walls…

What a difference a week makes!

It has been so awesome to watch our little house (affectionately known as “the shed”)  grow this week. I can’t believe how much they have got done. Walking through now it is all starting to make sense. For me it is anyway but I think maybe Steve is still finding it a bit hard to see it. It is going to be such a cute little house!!

Before our eyes it grew … Our carpenter Graham and his team have worked like you wouldn’t believe this week putting in very long hours. We are so grateful to have them helping us!
