So how are we going, time wise? Originally our deadline was to be finished before Newbie arrived. All going to plan (and I gather there are far fewer delays due to bad weather or supply issues in obstetrics than in renovations), we should welcome the sproglet in around 3-4 weeks. Right before Christmas. So….what do you think our chances are of moving in by that original deadline?
I think this is one of those situations where its quicker to list what has been done, rather than what needs to be done. For example – we’ve dug a big hole ( where eventually concrete will be poured to support a roof strut that the steelworkers will make soon, which will one day hold up the ceiling so that the big sliding door can go in there once its been manufactured and delivered.)
But no, I won’t let this post become a whinge-fest like the last one. I’m going to look on the bright side!
Our tiler starts next week! And we even have some tiles for him to work with!
Gib is going up! We can start to see the shape and size of the rooms!
We’ve gotten rid of the hideous 80s style glass balustrade, and replaced it with something a lot simpler and more streamlined (and bonus! Less cleaning required!)
Last time I had a baby I was scrubbing the washing machine with a toothbrush, hand-making mobiles out of ribbons and fairywings, and painting a hallway.
This time, the new mortgage has been approved, the joiner has started making the kitchen, the plumber has installed the heat pipes, the carpet has been ordered, and I’ve been going paint sample crazy again. Sorry, Newbie. This is as close to nesting as you get.
