Now that all the roughing in is done, we are ready to get the insulation into the roof and the walls. We’re really aiming to get the plastering done before Christmas and we are feeling that much closer now… Unfortunately, just when we could have started on the insulation, both my husband and I were struck with stomach flu! In the mean time we have ordered the batts (see this posts featured image!), ceiling battens and some extra yellow tongue for the floor.
So while we aren’t 100% we managed to move all the materials that arrived today into the back of the house. When all is well, Anthony and his Uncle are planning to work on the next stage. It has been so lovely and so Australian to witness family give a helping hand in making our dreams come true. I still have pictures of family get togethers, entertaining friends and family and my children making their own memories in this home.
Doors, doors, no windows…
We spent some time yesterday working out where to purchase the cavity unit sliders. There are 3 rooms in total that have cavity doors, we also plan to replace the 2 doors in the old part of the house to unify everything (they’re pretty boggy too) as well as the main entrance door – which a large portion of is glass, so for privacy reasons isn’t too good. It looks like we will purchase these from Hume Doors.
