Getting closer

Yay, we are getting closer.

Yesterday the electrician finished his work and it’s great to have lights everywhere to work even longer to get all finished. The floors have been sanded, all walls painted, the bed in the guest bedroom is up and has been tested and found good. No cost spared, a good quality IKEA solid timber bed with drawers. Head piece to arrive in a week or so. We have bought new duvets, cushions and covers.

The vanities were finished last night and the plumber is expected today to finish all plumbing, then we will have working bathrooms too.

Vanity top in the making: Made from old Australian railway sleepers. We love recycling and UPcycling.

Now only doors and trims left to be done.

What a wet summer

the amount of rain we had over the last few days is extraordinary – at least on a subjective level. The occasional hours of sunshine in between evaporate the water quickly, hence yesterday we had 30 deg C. with 80% relative humidity.

New Building Projects

The last winter has been so terribly wet and turned all paddocks into mud that we decided to have the horses in a shelter and feed them rather than having them wading through mud and effectively thrashing the paddocks.

Happy New Year!
