So while the render cures over the next couple of weeks, we are working on bricking up the other side of the bedroom wall. My husband decided it would be the right thing to do, rather than just covering it up with gyprock.
We will eventually gyprock over the brick, but we will be hanging cupboards and tiling in that area, so just to further strengthen the wall, he thought we should finish it properly.
Anthony has been working through some week nights to get it done and the plan is to complete it this weekend.
Scheduled for this weekend is also nailing in the niches for the ensuite and bathroom. Depending on my husbands stamina, it may or may not be a write off weekend.
Next steps and steps I’m hoping will happen fairly soon are: Painting the exterior of the house, rainwater tank installation, electrical rough in, insulation and plastering. I believe in that order too. At this stage, I do think that our timeframe has been pushed out to completion in April 2017.
The internal brick wall wasn’t completed nor did the hubby start on the niches this weekend. Sometimes you just need to take a break, have a breather and pick up again. Because we are held up by weather and waiting for the render to dry, we’ve come to another lull. I will have to make some final decisions on the exterior colours very soon however.
