Ever closer…

September 2, 2010 | 4 Comments

This update introduces you to two biggish items: our shed (admired by all who visit – interestingly nearly every male who has set foot on the site feels compelled to speak out loud, “Nice shed,” they say.) and our rainwater tank.

Also included are some detail shots for those who like the detail…

Laundry floor with floor oil

Check out the difference pre and post floor oiling - this is the laundry. And the timber? Remilled messmate.

living room walls one with and one without oil

Wanted the ply walls to feel largely untreated so gave them a coating of quarter tint acrylic oil. One on the right has had the treatment - doesn't look this dark in real life. All up the living room looks great.

living room fan and lights

Here's a look at our ceiling fan and one of the living room lights.

shed before concrete has been poured

Ah - the shed! Here it is before the concrete had been poured. Nice looking day on the Grange eh?

shed after concrete  poured

And how proudly I stand next to the shed and its magnificent concrete floor

Ta daaaa! Tank in place and rain on the way.

first house gathering

The floor not being oiled does not stop us - with the help of a couple of trusty tarps here's our first (surprise) house gathering. May there be many more!

    Well Ron – we thought you might want to choose your own furnishings… 😉

    We did go with the green but found another area to use the blue too. We are also looking forward to you visiting.
