We have moved on a few steps since our last post update on the progress of the house. These are steps which are not so evident from a drive by. In the last two weeks we have had the electricians, plumbers and the heating/cooling people weave their magic. The walls are now all wrapped up in insulation paper awaiting the brick layers and plasterers to start working next week.
We expect that as August draws to a close, we will be at lock-up stage and the cabinet makers arrive, followed by painters and finally the floor coverings are installed. We still have our fingers crossed that we are in by late November - another 14 weeks away.

|The Chippys also arrive next week to fit the doors. This is the entrance looking down the hall to the family and kitchen areas.|
|Sue is pondering over the en-suite. This photo taken from the very front of the bedroom shows the shower to the very left behind the bedroom alcove. Double wash basins are just behind Sue.|
|In the left bottom corner of this photo is where the kitchen bench sink will be. Sue has opted for a double sink in the Butler's Pantry with only a single sink in the island bench - the ovens (2) and hotplates are behind the island bench.|
Thought I might add a couple of exterior shots of the Al Fresco area. This is where I barbecue, entertain mates over a beer or three and enjoy the afternoon sun.
We are tossing up as to whether add a timber deck under the roofed area or add very large tiles to the concrete base that will be poured towards the end of the building process. The area is a huge L-shape, all undercover. You may like to offer some thoughts.
