Today’s Construction Update

on September 15, 2014

There were a couple of guys painting the inside of our house today when I stopped by. I hadn’t been expecting them until later in the week, so I was excitedly happy to see them there.

I am mindful of the privacy of tradies and the fact that they may not want to be photographed at work and have that image shared online. If I go ahead and do it, they are not getting a choice in the matter.

It’s hard to get recognisable pic of inside from behind the construction fence. I knew we would hit this point. But I can still get enthusiastic about what’s happening.

So today I just have the daily pics from the outside.

The family who are building across the road from us were at their block this afternoon. They are building with a local builder, so have no construction fence and have a key to their almost finished house. They’ve had a few hiccups along the way, as happens most times when building a house and we’ve been interested in each others’ projects along the way. We have plans to share some wine together once we’ve all moved in. They gave me a guided tour of their house today and it is beautiful! It’s larger than ours, with a different colour scheme to what we have chosen and I like theirs just as much as I like ours.

I am running late with my post tonight because I went to watch Year 12 graduate at the the school at which I work. It’s such a busy week for them. Last year I was there as a parent of  Year 12 student, this year I had the opportunity to attend as part of the staff team. They have their Graduation Dinner later in this week, which I am not attending. I feed them, not teach them so I am not as close to them as their teachers are. I will miss them though.

And that’s where we are up to today.
