Roof, guttering and fascia 100% complete !

We've finally been waterproofed :)

Roof, guttering, fascia, lead flashing are all done and we are now ready for the electrical work to commence. We hope to have all the cabling done early next month.

We've also narrowed down the air/con installer as the first fix will need to go in very soon too. We've chosen to go with a Daikin inverter. Hope it's worth it :)

I think I'm in LOVE

With this kitchen!!! This whole time I've wanted a dropped ceiling in the whole kitchen (including the island as well), and now, all of a sudden I think I no longer want this. Although it would define the kitchen and separate it from our large open living space, I think it might date a bit too quickly and make the kitchen look darker than it needs to be :)

What do you all think?

The roof is almost done!!!

Can you see the roof above the garage? :) It's almost done, and so is the back of the house, and the detached garage! Now we need to wait for our guttering guy to do the lead flashing. Apparently there is a two week wait to get the materials :(
But at least something is happening :)

Our ground floor guttering has been completed and roof tiles were delivered and most of them laid last week. Still not finished... One day... One day...
