Well after no blog activity for quite a while here’s an update hot on the heels of the previous one. Things are moving along with the house but it still feels like we have quite a way to go. Still to do: bathroom tiling, floorboard sanding, kitchen and living room cabinetry, rainwater tank, power to house and . . . plenty of painting and oiling.

living room with plywood walls on

Plywood internal walls all on and floorboards all in place. Waiting on ceiling paint.

Kitchen with unfixed benches

Kind of getting an idea of kitchen now - benches not fixed and waiting patiently for their cabinets.

bathroom no tiles

Just waiting on the tiles to be added...


View north from study window - who's getting any work done in here?

main deck

Decisions, decisions - what to 'finish' all this timber with?

shade devices

Eaves are so old fashioned 😉 We love our slatted shade devices.

An up-closer look at the shade devices on the eastern end of the house.

    It IS starting to look very flash. I like the positioning of the benches in the kitchen, two people won’t get in each other’s way. I’m surprised that I didn’t notice the latest update sooner. I must have looked just before you posted.

    And how about those shade devices? They are hot! Or…. will keep the hot away very efficiently. I am so excited for you both! xxx

    Dene, looking forward to having a wine or two with you on one of our decks (ah the luxury of two decks) when next you visit.
