Extension Update II
This year has seen a lot of rain in Melbourne, which has slowed down our progress a little. But, we have windows!! Woot, woot!!! Plus a few other additions.
|Mr 3P and Pickle#1started knocking out the wall that will eventually join the existing house with the new addition.|
|A glass atrium will be the "hallway" the joins the two sections together.|
|There was a lovely little mouse's nest in between the walls. I think it had been abandoned long ago (probably thought we were too noisy)|
|This is the view from the atrium, looking out to the front entry and door. Where Pickle #2 is standing will be our lounge room.|
|I used a bunch of this rubble to fill in garden pots (makes for good drainage)|
|All of the pickles were given the task to clean the bricks that were removed. They had a blast and worked really hard. We'll reuse whatever we can.|
|I think working in Spiderman boots makes all the difference...don't you?|
|My Grandmother would say " You could grow potatoes under those nails".|
|This is the frame for the portico at the front door. I'm not sure what Mr 3P is doing, is he reading? Extensions for Dummies maybe? lol|
|Hopefully we'll have a plumber do his thing next week, so the brickies can start. Fingers and toes crossed.|
Till next time....
