House Update

We have had another busy weekend. 

The Hubbster has been building the stairs leading to the landing in the garage.

Here he is working on the stringers, which are from our previous home, so it's nice to have brought a memory with us from our old house to our new.....


Our carpenters have started building the verandah railing. They have started with the bottom rail and we are using our rough cut hardwood.

We are loving the rustic look and are so lucky to have all of this beautiful timber from our property.


This week will see The Hubbster taking some of the hardwood into town to have it "dressed" to become the top railing.....

I will be contacting the glass people about our showerscreens, and The Hubbster has some more lights to collect that have now arrived!

It's all go go go......

SO EXCITING!!! I love home reno's, I'm almost addicted to them. There is always more to be done at our place, so I know how long the process can take. Looks great, can't wait to see some more progress pics along the way.

Every week I think y'all must be almost done and then you find more to do. I can't wait for y'all to move in! (I'm sure you feel the same way.)
