** House Progress Post **
In my last post, we’d reached the slab stage. The concrete slab had just been poured – which was super exciting. Here is the link if you would like to go back and see where it all began.
In the past month, I’ve been stalking the site. I try to go when I think that the builders would have gone home for the day. Most of the time though, they’re still there, so I take photos when I think that they’re not looking. Yes, a wee bit creepy for them, but I imagine they get it a lot by excited women, whose house they’re building.
Okay, so next up, this happened:
And then last week, during the Anzac Day public holiday, we decided to drive by to see the progress and found that the builders hadn’t locked the gate properly. So we may or may not have had a little tour of the downstairs – from the inside!!
This is an image from my kitchen, near where the sink will be. That stand thingy will be the island bench. Where those planks of wood are on the floor, will be where I’ll have my dining table.
That doorway into that room with 4 glorious windows, will be my much anticipated sewing room.
Okay, breathe Anorina.
The kids went back to school after the 2 week autumn break and on Monday, I booked myself in for a colour and cut (it had been months since the last time I’d been for hair rescue).
So amid all of this construction, I went and got my hair done.
Here I am, looking slightly cross eyed, sneaking a photo in the mirror while the hairdresser went to get some glossy, trashy magazines for me to read.
And here is the after-shot when I got in the car. It was lovely and shiny and straight… and then it drizzled and my hair got just wet enough to not be lovely and straight any more. But hey, I captured the moment.
This photo was taken yesterday afternoon. The brickies have been working away getting the bottom floor all bricked up.
You know what I have just noticed? They have moved bricks to the other side of the fence. I wonder if they’re making way for the scaffolding to arrive soon. Scaffolding means - second storey. Woo Hoo!
I’m dreaming of flooring now. We will go in and order our flooring and carpet soon. I know what I like, but it will of course come down to $$$. Winning the lottery right about now would be lovely.
If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?
