More pics from late 2007 when we moved into the new bits of house…
Here’s some of the kitchen cabinets under construction…
No, haven’t fallen into a hole or anything, just that the building has kind of taken over life right now. Summary
– floor laid, insulation in, gyprock fixed, plastered and sanded
– right now we’re painting inside
Have lots of pictures and details to post, sometime soon…
The flooring is in place, sitting upside down at the moment and not nailed down, but in place nonetheless. Makes it feel like a real house or something…
Lots of colourbond and fibro cutting and fitting.

The roof is finished now – all of the extension plus all of the existing house. And it looks fantastic. No more leaks in storms, no more buckets in the ceiling, oh yeah!
We’re hoping to even get some cash for the old aluminium roof from a metal recycler.

Rainy on and off (surprise) this week but the roof is underway. Most of the extension is under cover now, changing the view somewhat. Work also happening on internal framing for the hallways, doorways and Acacia’s bedroom ceiling.
The windows are also being cleaned up and reglazed – we have some nice coloured glass for the four matching western windows that Annette’s put in and the northern windows needed some panes of clear glass replacing. I picked up and denailed a load of secondhand 6 x 2 timber which Greg’s cleaning up and using to make frames for the western windows.
