I'd like you to do something for me.
Put your thumb and index finger together.
Now move them apart about 1 cm.
THAT is how far we are away from finishing The Money Pit.
THAT is how close we came to moving in by Christmas.
THAT is how much patience I have left.
We have made steady progress most of the year, but we just didn't make it.
We now have a new goal which is March 2012.
There's not alot left to do. The toilets and taps, the light fittings, the ceiling fans and power points, the hot water system and last of all, the floors, which will be polished.
In the grand scheme of things, it's just a blip on the radar.
So work has stopped over Christmas, except for the ordering of the lights, fans, taps and toilets.
The painter has finished and has done a great job. It took 4 weeks to paint the inside.
Remembering that the house is 550 sqm.
So we are going to enjoy our 4th Christmas in the shed, knowing that it won't be long and we will be unpacking our things and moving into our dream home.
We are so happy with the skylights!
We have them in two of the bathrooms, the mud room, the kitchen and our walk in robe. See how bright they are!
