Short news break..more later….when we originally budgeted, David told us that rendering the entire house was going to cost $10000 more than bagging, so after we picked outselves up off the floor, we decided to stick with bagging.
Apparently that figure was way high and it’s significanly less, although it means we’ll be living on the poverty line for a few years to pay it off, we decided to pay the extra and go for fully rendered (which was our original plan anyway).
Bagging – a thin coat of concrete on the bricks, which is then painted, you can see the bricks through the bag
Render – Thicker coat, can’t see bricks, can be smooth or textured, also painted, looks much cooler.
A few pictures of the progress to keep you amused….
