Blogging has taken a back seat the last couple of weeks as we start to prepare for our move. I know it is still a few months away (mid/late April at this stage) but after 17 years in our current home we have A LOT to do. We spent the first 15 years of married life moving every 15 – 18 months overseas and in Australia so we didn’t get the chance to accumulate ‘stuff’! I had no idea until this last couple of weeks how much ‘stuff’ we had accumulated and so we have had to start culling our ‘stuff’. This has been quite difficult for me, easy peasy for my better half and an absolute nightmare for our daughter who is a bit of a hoarder! Along with the culling we have started doing all those little and big jobs around the house that we have been meaning to do over time (17 yrs!) – and so we have been kept busy.
In the mean time things have been progressing well at the block and it is such a good feeling when we drive to our block and see several Utes parked outside and tradies busy at work.
The roof carpentry has been completed and next stop will be the colourbond roofing .
The electrician and plumber have been busy too ………
Unfortunately the shower in the ensuite is in the wrong place and too close to the shower entrance so we would end up with water everywhere! This will need to be sorted.
The external rendering is also well underway ……..
As the build progresses and starts taking shape we are starting to rethink our landscaping plan so be prepared for a revision on landscaping!
