We have had so many people stopping to ask what we are building.. a deck?… a balcony? Does this honestly look like a deck? Would someone build a deck/balcony on the roof?? It’s just a platform for painting up high. (Elaine is NOT fond of heights.)


Removed the last of the kitchen chimney and cabinet underneath. We were going to leave¬†the exposed bricks in the corner of the kitchen, but decided the grout was too old and not very strong any more. Now we are building a new “chimney area” with the original bricks as a feature in the kitchen – part of our design to use original materials in a new/different way.


Last week we installed our new timbers (6×6 and 2×6’s) in the laundry room floor. They are beautiful and fit just right. Now it is all stable and level and ready for the subflooring to be put down. It feels really good to be putting things together and not just tearing things down.
