New House - Week 3

The house is still coming along in leaps and bounds. Brian from G J Gardeners is sending me weekly updates and photos which makes it really exciting.

As you can see the frame is well and truly up...



This is the garage...



The Fascia is now on...



Looking Good!!!...




That's the family room, dining, kitchen, and the bit that juts out is my room...



Building paper is now on.. (Gee the weather doesn't look good!! - I thought it didn't rain in Blenheim!! I've been duped!)



Here's the front door - and the window on the left is the guest bedroom... guests get that room as there's a view over the vineyard!



All it needs is the roof and I could move in....



Not long now :)

Jusst as I finished putting these up, I got an email from Fred Parry, member of the Camera Club in Marlborough who sent me a few more photos of the house. He told me there was not much action today on the house as the weather was not good...



This one gives an idea of my views....

It's nice that they kept your grass looking as good as it is, a lot of construction companies just tear out the vegetation and the new home owners have to pay for the new landscaping themselves!

Hi Chris,

This grass is just paddock grass. I will most likely have to spray it to kill it off, then re do/re-lay the lawns myself. Not sure yet - will have a look properly once the house is done!

Cheers
Robyn

Hi Robyn, we went out and had a look at your house yesterday while we were in Renwick, looks really good, bath is there, bricks are there, all ready for the roof, sorry I didn't have my camera to take a couple of photo's to show you. Weather seems to be better now and hopefully it is now summer here, Catchya later

Linda said...

forgot to mention the windows and front door is in :)

Robyn said...

Hi Linda - wow - bath is there before the roof? Is it one that gets filled by the rain? lol

Cheers
Robyn

Robyn said...

Oh wow - windows and door - but still no roof.

Oh - I'm on a budget - perhaps they're skipping the roof bit to help me out a bit? lol
