Anyway, today in the wind and the rain, we headed down to the block to paint 19 door and window frames. As Bob said, it really was just slapping preservative on to the frames, not worrying about the underside of the lower sills. So we listened to daggy music and primed the frames, feeling very much part of the project. A couple of visitors dropped by the break up the day; a neighbour of M & N's who takes a great interest in our project and was passing by, and one of Bob's mates who wanted to borrow some equipment (all was OK, Bob just forgot to mention that he'd be calling in). It was a good day's work; any unskilled work that we can contribute that helps us get back into the house even one day earlier has got to be good. Hopefully Bob will be putting the frames in tomorrow, with the cladding staring Wednesday or Thursday. We should be at close to lock up stage in 4 weeks, which makes us very happy.
Progress has also been made on floor tile and with ducted vacuum cleaning selection. We've also sketched out a plan for wiring, lighting and power points for Sparkie Dave, as electricals is another important step in the next few weeks. There should be a lot of progress to report for next weekend's update.
