End of week 10 (day 70)

15 Sep

This day was a most exciting day (Friday 9th of Sept)! The whole house turned green as the waterproof paper and the battons were put on. I only arrived when most of it was done. This step made the whole house entirely waterproof. In time the roof tiles will go on and cement board and a plaster render will cover the house! But for the moment the house is GREEN!

A very green house!

The builders made it look easy, but each piece of paper had to be laid over the lower one, making sure any water falls down and off the house. The windows had to be surrounded neatly, and each batton had to be the right length. Each batton was nailed to a corresponding wall stud (if that’s the correct word) inside the house. This means that the battons, walls and rafters all correspond. It makes it all look so tidy!! I like tidy!

    Wow – it’s really looking like a house!!!!!!!!! And a very lovely one at that! I know there is probably loads more to do inside but do you have an idea of a completion date yet? So exciting.

      Hey Sheena,
      We’re hoping around January! It’s hard to tell how quickly or slowing things will go from here, as there are many jobs now that will depend on other workmen, like installing heating stuff, electrics, and so on. Hopefully it’ll all go smoothly! So far its going really well, we’re on track and its coming together really nicely. Yesterday we picked out all the sanitary wear, its strange to think that in just a few months we’ll be moving into it.. 🙂
      love irene
