What seems to have been an interminable wait has morphed into a gloriously bright structure that’s looking more and more like a house. Because in the last 2 weeks we’ve had plaster and ceilings put up! I’m now getting my excitement back, as lockup is within sniffing distance.
They started on Saturday (yes they worked on a weekend!) and finished today. Here are some pictures of what’s been done so far.
Barge capping has been installed on the portico! We’re getting closer to seeing what the end result will look like. The pale blue bit will be painted “Monument” to match the fascia.
We started getting excited when we saw these steel trusses in the roof. This was the first part of the ceiling preparation. Along the edge of the ceiling along the walls/windows, you can see the outline of the bulkhead structure. As we’re having a shadowline ceiling here, it looks a bit different to a regular corniced ceiling.
Behold the glorious ceiling! This is the open plan area, looking towards the dining area. It’s not quite finished yet, obviously, but you get a good idea of how it’s going to look.
Bulkhead looking into the kitchen. Just to the left you can see where they’ve left room for a hidden curtain rail. Ceiling hasn’t been put into that bit yet.
Fresh off the press today, a little glimpse into how the highlight windows will look above the stacker doors.
They still need to do a skim coat over the top of the plasterboard, install the shadowline, and install the cornices before it will be complete.
And not forgetting the guest bedroom!
We also have some doors delivered. These are Corinthian Deco 1. Unfortunately, the model has changed from a V groove to a U-channel, but i still think it looks nice.
The folly of only owning a convertible during building finally became apparent. I had to make 3 separate trips into Osborne Park on Saturday to pick up various things that would barely fit into my car. On the plus side, it didn’t rain while I had my top down with the rangehood ducting in the passenger seat!
