Sorry for the delays in blogging. A lot has happened both inside and out, but rain has hampered every aspect of the job. Cabinetry is going in, painting has been done, the roof is coming along slowly, paths are going in and the garage floor is coated. Still lots to do but we may move into the new part before Christams. After that , the men can go to town on stripping the old part, renewing wiring, walls and ceilings and finishing the guest ensuite.Fences and landscaping, driveways and clothes line will follow. The garage door will come in late January. It is a race against time to be ready for Summer visitors in January and February. Everyone involved wants the job completed. We're now in week 37!

Now the roof is on, the eaves gutters and trims are appearing. The Bifold doors in the front bedroom will let in streams of winter sun all day. While the scaffolding is still there the painters are following the builders down. On 1st September, a new coffee shop called Óur Haus', opened to a grateful suburb. It's only a block away, and we don't have to fight for a park in Oxford Street.
