The Carpenters have arrived and the fit-out has started. We thought that we were going to be delayed as the carpenter was transferred to another job to work on a house frame however with the recent rains, he came back to our house. He obviously wanted to work indoors. How fortunate for us.
With 10 weeks to the end of November, we are getting nervous about meeting our deadline to be in before Christmas. The carpenter has finish off with all the architraves and skirting boards, then we have the tilers, painters, electricians before the floor coverings can be laid. Cross your fingers for us.
|Sue's kitchen is now taking shape. The back cabinet work is to have two ovens installed. The large island bench gives her plenty of room to prepare for this large dinner parties and possibly even some cooking schools for the locals.|
|Only a small sink is being installed in the island bench as all the washing up and preparation will happen in the butler's pantry. Even the dishwasher will be there. The open space in the island bench is for a wine cooler.|
|The butler's pantry has a double sink and on the other side is another bench for Sue's appliances. Kitchen Aid, Ice Cream Maker, etc.|
|We are now looking from the master bedroom - to the right is the walk-in dressing room.|
In front of us is the en-suite vanities. To the left is an open walk-in shower and behind the vanity wall is the toilet.
