About Me

After we've completed a house, it's amazing how many people say "Isn't it great how it all came together!"... as if by accident. This is a very small look into how it all "comes together".

The renderers were there again today. Actually, there were about 30 people there today!
Renderers by the dozen, plasterers, chippies, cabinet makers, the builder/project manager (Adam), a client wanting advice about blinds & gates, and myself. 
I helped a friend with her exterior colours today... (it's always best to catch me when I'm on a roll). 
She asked me if I had a busy day ahead of me & then laughed when I said, "no pretty quiet....I just have to......."
Some times days like today stress me out. But today I was on a roll, and feel that I was able to tick a lot off my list!
The cabinet maker did the measure up today and it took 6 hours!!!
 Lovely lovely render
 This is the steel that will hold the blades on the side of the house.
Pretty heavy duty!
 The renderers were working to beat the storm last week. 
Thankfully there was no damage.

'Disco' dave was there singing at the top of his voice. 
It's good to have happy tradies!
 Our bedroom balcony pre-render
 Adam has really outdone himself with those angles & our renderer has done a great job (as always) to enhance them. 
 Plasterers at work whilst I "um & er" about light choice, size & placement
 This is the stair landing and the bridge looking towards our bedroom (west)
 Living & kitchen
 The scaff's still there. 
The Jigsaw Puzzle
The house is really quiet. 
We spend a lot of money on insulation as we think it's so important to have your little cocoon.
We do the same for clients. 
Building inspectors & evaluators don't believe that this increases the value of a home, however I'll argue this til I'm blue in the face!
 Getting there.....
The 'viewfinders' on our balcony are angled too!
