Doors, doors, doors!

The last of our doors is hung (hanged?), and the north doors have been glazed (mostly)! On Friday 4 of us lifted the 170kg bedroom door into place and the glaziers came by to fit the enormous panes of 10mm thick glass into the external sliders...of course, in true glazier fashion they managed to mess up 2 of the 6 panes, so the house isn't water tight just yet. Still, it almost looks like a house and a lot less like a building site.

Also, the ceiling has finally been cleaned and we have achieved close tot he desired finish. It's not perfect, but it still feels right.

Date for practical completion is 5 weeks away...we are going to miss it...but by how much?!

Post at Last! Post at Laaast!

Well, I thought it was about time for an update, but can't believe it has been 1 month since the last! Lazy blogger. Well, a bunch of goings-on have gone on - external frames are in, internal doors are mostly hung and the external stair has been fixed to the side of the house. In addition to all this, my office has shifted to a newer, cooler, far bigger and far more disjointed space than the last (hence the month long hiatus). Still, here's some pics...
