About the House: Renovations & Repairs.

Despite my silence I am still here, but the days and nights are crazy-busy at the moment.

Renovations on the house are still in full swing: SJ took two weeks annual leave to get as much as possible completed. We are almost done with the living room and the dining room, just waiting on some architrave to arrive and still have to replace a few pieces of skirting that are old and damaged beyond repair.

[Our living room last week]

Not including the gyprock and cornice (I'm unsure as to how many metres of this we've needed so far), in the living and dining area alone we have so far used approximately 45kg of top coat, 12L sealant primer undercoat, 8 tubes of No More Gaps (I'll be opening the ninth this evening), 12L low sheen paint, 8L semi-gloss paint, and a countless number of screws, nails, glue, and sandpaper...

SJ is confident of having these two rooms completed over the weekend so that we can move our attention to the entrance hall, which still needs sanding, undercoating, No More Gaps-ing, painting...

There will be a series of "Before" and "After" pictures to come, hopefully in the not-too-distant future! I can't wait to show you what we've achieved (all of us amateur renovators!).
