The weather here in Sydney is absolutely stunning. After a very hot and sunny Christmas Day we had a rainy old Boxing Day (which I think is kinda nice anyway) which eventually cleared up then after that we had a few grey days however yesterday and today have been sensational and tomorrow is shaping up to follow suit.
Which means heading out into the yard for a swim very soon! I will really miss having a pool when our house is finally ready, and I know our 2 year old will too!
So onto the house..
I went over to stickybeak around on Boxing Day (I wanted to stand there and think about how great next Xmas will be!) and despite our SS being told otherwise there was NO gyprock to be seen, only one out of the 3 small remaining sections of roof had been completed (we were told they would be done this year so they still have time), and I discovered the Tasmanian Oak lining that had been so beautifully installed on the ceiling of our Outdoor Room had been removed to install a noggin for our ceiling fan (which we paid for and is on our variations list but somehow was left off the final plans I believe).
This is great to see, however I am concerned they will just re-use those Oak boards that have now been forcibly removed and are more than likely now sporting some damage from the removal process..
Time will tell I guess.
According to our SS the elusive insulation is being installed today, and the gyprockers will start tomorrow, but like everything else with the house of late I will believe it when I see it.
Tomorrow marks 4 months since site start, I had initially hoped, when things were moving so fast that we would be up to painting or tiling over the break but clearly thats not to be..
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve - bring on 2011 and the completion of all our homes!!
