Photo update

 Fairy lights for Darren's 40th

 Re-laying the kitchen floorboards

 Oh how I love that nail gun!

 Kitchen floor finished, dining room to go on the left

 The boys in their site office

 New cedar french doors installed in the lounge

 Boards almost finished to the front and side (upstairs)

 My colour trials - weeks of agonising but I am finally happy with the selection

 Ceilings in at last, makes such a difference to the space

 Product placement, if only Bunnings were paying us!

 Kitchen and dining in their new eco-wool jumper (ie insulation).
Looked like a hay bale house at this stage.

 Insulation installation delirium?

 Dad and Darren hard at work re-boarding the walls in the dining/kitchen

 Just before the scaffolding was removed

 Decorative finials - designed by me, created by hubby.
Loving them!

 Finally free of the scaffolding and looking gorgeous in a fresh coat of paint!

Looks like a space-ship from this angle ...
can't wait to spend lazy evenings with friends on the back deck.

And lastly, just so show that we are managing a little fun and glamour in amongst all this hard work, a picture of the renovators enjoying a brief weekend in Byron and a beautiful wedding:
