27. Painting

The painters have been working on the internal walls this week. We are very pleased with the result! 

The timber ceiling has been started too, and looks great.

26. Plastered ...

The house - not us! 

The plastering team worked all last week to complete the setting, and finished off the sanding on Monday. They have done a really excellent job, and it looks wonderful. The house is fully square set, with no cornices or architraves, giving it a very clean look.

25. Not much

No plasterers last week, so not much happened. The last of the external cladding was finished, the posts and bearers for the deck were installed, and that's about all!

24. A good week

A lot has been done this week. The major achievement was installing insulation throughout the ceilings and walls, then having the whole house lined (Gyprock & Villaboard) inside.

R3.0 insulation, made from recycled glass bottles!

23. Progress

It has been a frustrating week, with several sub-contractors failing to arrive when promised, but eventually, on Thursday, the Custom-orb cladding was started.
