Cabinetry done! Rendering Prep'd

Well its looking like another action packed week might be in order yet!

Turned up this afternoon to find the benches in and the kitchen being finished. All the edging has been done for the rendering and there's a pallet of render goodness ready to go, so hopefully when i turn up tomorrow morning for the driveway sizeup they'll be into that and the rest of the skirting boards. Nearly ready for paint!

Anywho, took a stack of photo's.

Internal Doors, Skirting Boards & Roller Doors

Monday was a bit quiet, bit of waterproofing done, windows gooped, internal doors & skirting timber delivered.

Tuesday they started work, all internal doors installed, skirting and door frames well under way, front and rear roller doors fitted. Really taking shape.

Few average pics taken on the crackberry

A slow week

Well compared to the last few weeks this week has been dead at the house.

All thats been done is the plasterwork is pretty much finished, and the eaves and blueboard bits above windows and the fascia has been installed.

Oh and the front door has been installed to lock us out.

So no new pictures because its all a bit ho-hum. Not sure where to from here, im guessing kitchen needs to go in and painting needs to start, hopefully next week will be another action packed week.

Bricking Complete, & Plaster Started

Spent yesterday at the house putting in the insulation, network cabling & stereo cabling. I think for most of the day there about 15 workmen on site. Brickies, fencers, electricians, plumbers and other random people calling through from time to time. Crazy. Brickies did 3/4 of the work on Wednesday, went back today and the brickwork is finished, including the letterbox. The fencing down the left side has been finished and the colour is awesome. What we didnt expect was the plasterers to be there, let alone have done a fair chunk of the walls and ceiling. I did want to get some photo's of the ducting but they'd already covered it all up! Guess its not a bad thing.

Some pics

Windows, Doors & Bathtub in!

No pics yet, it was dark when I swung by, but its exciting.

I'll grab some piccies tomorrow, the insulation gets dropped off at mums tomorrow as well, its all happening now. It'll grind to a halt pretty soon though i feel.
