With gyprocking scheduled to start next week, the rush to get the air conditioning pipes and electrical in and checked off was in full force. My husband and site supervisor spent today checking every powerpoint and light switch was in the right place. My husband also spent most of a very wet Saturday laying data cable. What boys will do for their TV / electrical plans...... Note to anyone ever doing this - take a friend!

Well today was to be the start of the next faze of the house construction, the inside was to begin. This was until a weeks worth of rain put a stop to that. It wasn't till the 7th June that gyprocking started and up in two days. Wow what a difference! Instantly feels like a home.

To our amazement, we arrived on site to catch the stairs being installed. We had chosen to upgrade our staircase and balustrade to the Eden Brae timber open tread staircase and so glad we did. Even without staining or railing it looks fantastic. The stairs will be stained a rich walnut and will match the front doors.

After another week of torrential rain the doors finally go on and the house is now fully locked up. Even though this now keeps us out! Was a bit concerned our nice new doors might go walkabouts over a long weekend.
The front doors are made of timber and will be stained a rich walnut colour. Inserts are frosted glass and they will have long vertical door handles on both doors. Very happy with our choice.
After 2 years of dreaming, our new home has finally come to fruition.

Nearly a month of no work on our house and the wettest April in 127 years, the bottom storey roof and guttering has now been completed. The outside is now nearly finished apart from a few doors. We have had confirmation from our site supervisor that we will be at lockup by the end of the week. It actually feels like we are now getting somewhere!
Render still has not been fixed.... we will keep onto them......
So here's a pic of the nearly finished front of our Eden Brae Entertainer
