We are putting up the soffits now...or the verandah ceilings. We are using our fantastic panel lifter...it makes the job so much easier.
This photo shows the back deck. You can see how much work there is left to do....sigh.
We have a busy week ahead.
Our plasterer visited on Friday and we have a plan of where we are going.
In no particular order we have to:-
Talk again with our plasterer and get his recommendations for a carpenter..
Ring the carpenter and organise a visit....he will be hanging our doors, putting up our vj wall panelling, and doing trims and architraves etc
Ring the plumber and see how much more work he needs to do before we sheet out inside.
On Tuesday, The Hubbster and I are doing a string line all through the house so we can begin putting noggins in, which are the pieces of timber that the gyprock will be attached to.
So the carpenter will do the vj wall panelling, the gyprock guy will put the walls and ceilings up and then the plasterer will come in and finish off.
We are deciding on some nice ceiling roses and some fancy cornices, in keeping with the style of the house.
We also have to decide on which doors we are having, and buy them.
Our tanks have to be purchased so the plumber can do that work.
And we have to find a tiler.
And a painter.
There is still so much to be done. That is why we have decided to outsource and have an expert do most of the internal fitout. We can do it, but we don't have the time if we want to be in by Christmas.
Even that will be a stretch.
It wil be a dream come true when we actually move in. I can't wait to transfer all of our things from the shed and the dongas up to the house.
At least we won't need a moving truck. We live a metre away!
So you'll find me working on the house on Tuesday and with any luck The Hubbster will let me use the nail gun!
