It has been a big job but all the wall lining is now finished in the house. We chose timber lining boards for most of the walls and that meant undercoating them all before they went up. For the first time in all the renovating and building projects we've done since we first lived together, Mick decided to pay a painter to spray the lining board with undercoat (except he ran out and had to go and buy some more). Mick hates painting and every house he has sworn will be the last one he paints. He does pretty much every other job in the building process which saves us a lot of money. Why do the one you really hate doing?!
The final paint colour still needs to be applied and one wall with wallpaper. The kitchen cupboards are all made up and in a huge pile in the shed. The flooring will be collected this week, the pantry, bookshelving, entrance , bathroom and laundry cupboards are underway and the timber for the kitchen benchtops and bathroom and laundry countertops is sitting in the carport. My long list of things to choose and order is finally beginning to shrink just a little. Mick says he's about 70% of the way through the project now.
Meanwhile we are enjoying having a little veggie patch again.
