Bob has been very busy over the last week and is now taking a couple of days off for the school holidays. The frame at the front of the house is complete and all the roof trusses are in place. Garage side door issue has still not been resolved but we'll tackle that next week. I love the fact that I can walk into all the rooms in the house and start thinking about how we are going to use them. The side that is our bedroom, walk in robe and ensuite will work really well and I think I should be able to get all of my shoes and bags in the wardrobe. The hall cupboard is huge and should deal with all of the linen and various other bits and pieces we need to store- just as well as there is no central cupboard downstairs, although we'll have the wardrobes in the bedrooms and whatever storage we can fit into the laundry. There's also quite a bit going on in the background - the hand rails for the deck and external stairs are being made and will be installed by the end of the month, the bi-fold door for the west side has been ordered and Bob is working on the glass roof that will connect the two structures and cover the stairs going up to the kitchen/ living area and downstairs to the other two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry. While he's kicking back with the boys, he will be talking to glaziers about the type of glass we will need (very strong) and also whether we need to get tinted glass to ensure that the area below doesn't become a hot spot in summer. The priority for us this week is to chase up the kitchen guy so that we can work out whether we can get everything we want in the kitchen as it is with the larger window on the south side, as one of Bob's next jobs is to start building window and door frames in readiness for the external cladding to be put on. Have a great holiday Bob and looking forward to more progress next week!
I am an office worker trying to get in touch with my creative side. I like to make things and cook but spend more time thinking about these things rather than doing them. I play lots of sport and will always elect to walk the dogs rather than do things around the house. I buy far too many books yet never have anything to read. In 2010 we knocked down our house and rebuilt it but the journey of gardening and organising our space continues.
