We have a front door!

Granted, it is sitting in the garage rather than it the big hole at the front of the house but it will make those last important steps this week!

Our  ensuite bath -framing
 and then initial gyprocking - our original tiling (mosaics on the top) isn't going to work so we are currently deciding what to do - but there will be mosaics on the vertical curving bit -

 Some of our wiring (eep) - this is Geoff's play cupboard where all things data/audio visual will run out of
 And the scene of our first theft on site - someone wandered in (and we have our suspicions..) and grabbed a handful of speaker wire and snipped them off at the top.  I suppose we should be thankful that was all they wanted but will mean that there will be joiners along the wire, not sure how that will affect things later down the track..

My walk in pantry and kitchen - Henry is now officially bored with the whole thing -

 Initial plaster work on the ceiling is all done, starting to get a feel for the room now

  And the front entrance is getting higher and higher -

The gyprocking as all done now, so they have to get it prepared for painting next, still very rough at the moment.

Everything is ramping up, We saw the joiners yesterday, they are going to start on the laundry (the easiest) as soon as possible and then they are hoping to start on the kitchen in the next three weeks. They are keen for the stairs to go in so they don't have to haul cabinetry up the ladder, I get that...

 It is all on track for a September finish date, maybe even sooner. Will have better photos next time as Geoff has taken most on his iphone and my computer log in does not like them at all.
