Lots of action, seems like the house is 90% complete now, but we still have more than 7 weeks to go! The kitchen is going in TODAY, that’s definately worth an update, so I’ll do one tonight.
NOTE: I’m compressing the JPG’s to 40% to make them quicker to download on the modem connection, if anybody actually wants the full size/quality version of any of these, just email me and I’ll send them.
The water tank is competely finished, it’s not hooked up yet, but that’s one of the last things they’ll do…it does however have some water in it, to assist the curing process:
We also have some doors!
The cornices are all complete, architraves (sp?) are almost all done, should be finished today, skirtings shouldn’t be far behind, these things went up pretty quick, took them about 3 days to do all the cornices.
We had originally wanted a different type of cornice, called Gyprock® Tempo Cornice but even though the website says it lays and cuts exactly the same way as normal cove cornice, the plasterer wanted to charge us $4 a linear metre more to lay it, which would have been over $1600 extra! It’s a shame, the Tempo would have looked cool.
Bit of a close up of the architraves (there’s that sp again, someone care to let me know if that’s how you actual spell the silly word?) and the edge of the cornice to the raked area in the kitchen.
We made the ensuite toilet too small, and the WIR too big! The WIR can be used as a spare room!
In other news, we drove up to Forster for the weekend to become God parents (irony?) for Kienan, we borrowed a friends car for the drive, on the way up, the odometer! clicked over to this, an omen? (get it, omen, haha, oh dear)
