Diary of a Renovator - the next step...

Ok, so it rained in the last update but finally we got that roof on!  Next it's windows and cladding...

Windows arrive - yay!

Windows arrive - yay!

Once the windows were in and the cladding on I really felt as though the house was beginning to take shape, but even more so when the linings went in!  This was such a quick process, I couldn't believe that the Gib-rockers actually rocked it like they did!  It happened in about a day all up then they started plastering which only took another 2 days - amazing!  However I must say they were damn messy!!!! Plaster and crap EVERYWHERE (check out the floor in the pic below - grrrr!!!)

We resized the kitchen window and made it smaller so we could have a little more privacy in the kitchen and also so we didn't have to look at the apricot monstrosity next door every time we did the dishes!

New windows from the outside - pity about the front door...

Now we are ready to paint.... we are doing that ourselves and I'm really not looking forward to it - especially the ceilings but we have to save some dollars somewhere.  See you next time x
