Hello! What a lot has happened since I last posted. February has been super-busy and doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon.
The start of framing heralded the start of wiring in the house, after we secured the tick of approval from the Electrical Safety Inspector for our mains. This meant me walking around the house and marking the kajillion or so powerpoints which we're going to need.
Admittedly there is definitely an advantage to having an electrician husband when it comes to this, because the cost of having our builder do it would have been very expensive. Next weekend I'll do the same for light switches and then we need to get ordering them. We've decided to take a different approach with this in order to be able to afford some fanciness - more on that in a later post.
But what a surprise greeted me when I thought I would sneak up to the building site this morning to get some pictures. Not having been able to find child-free time in the past two weeks, I had a 30 minute window of opportunity.
I found three enthusiastic roofers, energetically laying roof insulation and sheets of Colorbond! On a Sunday! What dedication!
Admittedly, it was a fabulous morning for it - all sunshine and a zephyr of a breeze playing across the valley. It was great to see the first skerrick of colour being applied.
The colour we've chosen for our roof is Colorbond Shale Grey with matching guttering. The fascia and downpipes are in Colorbond Thredbo White.
This will go back with white trim on the doors and windows (apart from the front door - this will POP!).
I made my way very quickly around the house and got home before my curfew was up. Looking at these pictures now is pretty exciting - soon the bricks and Scyon cladding will arrive and we won't know ourselves.......
