This is a photo record of the progress on my - to be - new abode, currently under construction

 

 

 

 

This period saw the installation of the kitchen cupboards, sink, benchtops and cooktop. It all came from Bunnings, their Kaboodle range, and was pretty straightforward to install. As with everything internal, the ease with with it all fitted together was very much a function of how level and square the floor and walls were where the cupbording was being fitted.

There were a few challenges there and the fudge factor came in handy on occasions, but, all in all not too bad. The island bench benchtop had been stored on the verandah for a few weeks in utterly dreadful weather and ended up with a distinct bow (can't find the photos of that). We had to weigh it down for a couple of weeks with weights to take the bow out.

Then there was the job of putting down the floating floor in the main living area and the cork tiles in the kitchen. Both proved to be reasonably straight forward jobs and satisfying to see a finished floor in those areas I decided that, that being done, I should take my gear out of storage in Cairns. I also bought some furniture and window coverings in end of year sales, and, when the clutter was sorted out we had a reasonably liveable central area - with working kitchen. Bo was here over this period and was, as one comes to expect, enormously helpful with all tasks.

And, just to remind me of what a bright and talented family I have pianist Jean won 2 awards in the local eisteddfod and Nonie's PhD thesis (bound copy) turned up and takes pride of place on my desk.
