In the last couple of days the electrical has started going in. This includes the downlights, exhaust fans, smoke detectors etc.
One of the very best decisions we made was to upgrade to stained doors. They’re recieving multiple coats and are close to finished and looks amazing.
There’s still a couple of 1200mm sliders for the office and rumpus to come and a 920 to the hallway that will also get the same stain with translucent glass panel.
Yesterday the first coat of render was completed, giving our first real look at how our Vogue facade will look when finished.
There’s still another coat to go, but the house feels substantial and the scale dwarfs you. Im incredibly happy with how its coming together.
Today we seen one of the largest amounts of progress in a single day since the build began. Given the stellar pace of the build to date, that says a lot. Bricks, eaves, cabinets and painting all progressing today. We seriously have the best Site Manager.
Today the facade got one step closer to complete. The portico went up along with the wooden posts to support it and the extension over the bed 1 window.
The bricks are done now, ready for the facade to be rendered.
Its been some time since the last update, like the builder’s, I’ve been on a break. Just prior to the Christmas break, the bi-fold doors to the alfresco went in and look great, hopefully even better once stained. The brick layers also got started and completed 2 sides before the break.
