Week 4

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had the chance to update this blog.  Long hours at work and limited internet access hasn’t helped but now the lovely lady upstairs (the owner of the granny flat we’re renting) has given us access to her internet account.  So hopefully now I will able to update it regularly.

The small window on the right has been removed and filled in with weather boards.

While the builders have been waiting for the permits to be approved they’ve been busy installing new windows and lining the old dunny.  It’s starting to look more like a little study now

The old kitchen.

It’s storm season here in Queensland and yesterday we went to the house to have a swim.  It was incredibly hot and muggy and we could hear the thunder in the distance.  It arrived quite suddenly and brought with it heavy rain and hail.  The boys abandoned the pool and took shelter under the house.   The area under the house was a muddy mess.

The hail bouncing off the trampoline was fun to watch.

Then before we knew it, the storm had past and the sun and the steamy heat returned.

It’s now Monday of week five and hopefully (fingers crossed) the drains and footings are done this week.
