Since my last post a month ago we have been busy with things that need to be done but don’t feel that exciting. We have navigated a building consent amendment; incidentally we could have purchased a small second hand car instead….. but needs must. Prewire and pre plumb are complete, drains are in, the holes for the heat recovery system have been drilled, exterior cladding battens are on, the totara cladding is dried, machined and delivered. Most importantly the upper floor ceiling and walls have been stopped and painted allowing the mid floor scaffolding to come down later this week. The electrician is mounting the light upstairs today and Thursday the scaffolding will be down. This will give us the first real indication of the volume and light in the house. The thick magroc roof looks amazing now the ceiling has been painted particularly around the skylights. Below photos of the upper area. The next photo of this area uploaded on Thursday will be without the scaffolding which is in the foreground. Now that will be exciting.
