Updates on The Renovations.

Time for a catch up on the renovations progress. Here's a little more of whats been done !

Start of new cypress pine timber floors.

New cooker still in plastic next to the dinosaur cooker.

and here's what was in the box. Showing bamboo bench tops. Cupboard drawer fronts still to come.

Lounge room.

View out front entrance and french doors.

Now the polished cypress pine floors are completed, we are yet to have the sandstone feature wall to be completed.
Progress has slowed due to the record breaking hot summer (worst day at 43 degrees) so airconditioning to be installed tomorrow. We had taken the previous A/C out for reno's and were going to wait to install a new one, but no way are we going to wait any longer !

Watch this space!

Summer is...

I know it's been a while, but it has been a busy time with Christmas and holidays ! But we thought we'd catch up a bit here today. Here's some things that have taken up our time...

The Xmas chef ..quiet please, concentrating !

He means business.

At the new cooker, making the pud !

Can we have this as main, honey? Pavlova !

The boss says only after I eat my greens can we have the Pavlova...
