No Scaffolding.....

It has been a while since my last post, we have been busy with the internal rough-out. The plumbing, electrical and air-con are all done. Last weekend we insulated the walls and ran all the cables for the theatre and house speakers. The painter has started with the rockcote finish and hopes to be completed by weeks end. Today the gyprock arrived and the installers will start on Thursday and have plans to work over the weekend to get it done. The front photo shows the sealer white finish and the back view shows the completed colour.

Scaffolding Removed

Well it has been a very wet week, with consistent showers most days and today rain fell mostly all day until when I took this photo. The painter has been able to get some work done around the eaves and windows with the rockcoat finish and sealing, now with the scaffolding removed they should have a free run to roll a bit on Friday, fingers crossed for fine weather....

While this has been happening our plumber has been busy roughing in the water supply and will start the drainage on Friday. Our Electrician hopefully will be starting on Friday which will enable us to start installing insulation over the weekend.

Another Weekend....

Well, we had a dry weekend and have completed the gutter guard and roof ventilator. The scaffolding is scheduled to be removed this week so it was a rush to get it all done. The painters have started and have the eaves all but done including the alfresco area. Hopefully this week will see some textured finish on the brickwork. A weekend visit was also made by both our plumber and sparky, ready for a rough in this week but we also received a lovely surprise visit from Herb and Beth with lunch included which made our day. Sunday was spent clearing the site and running cat 5 cable for our network/phone and alarm.
