Steven has cleaned out the inside, and almost finished half of the ceiling. Next step is either the strawbale walls or the floorboards, I forget which. Also the gib board for the interior walls. We have a builder coming next week to do the bathroom! I have yet to choose a bath... or a sink... or any tiles. I think after 4 years of house research, actually having a deadline for something comes as a bit of a shock!
See those posts on the verandah? That's where my hammock will be strung. Even though I'll have two children and a full time job when the house is finished, I still fantasise that long periods of my day will be spent hammock-bound.
I will take some interior shots soon and blog those too.
The roof is on. The house is wrapped in building paper (almost ready for plastering):
The windows are all in (that was a job and a half - at least for someone who isn't a builder)..
The internal walls are almost finished (there aren't many, it's mostly open plan), and the wiring is done:
Elmer's room (full of floorboards. Or it may be ceiling boards):
Looks almost finished doesn't it? (hee hee).
SOOOO, the plan is, I am here in NZ for another month, and then me and Elmer are heading back to the UK for two months (inbetween weddings). Without the distractions of such a good looking pair, Steven will power on with the house, and when I return all that will be left to do will be arranging scatter cushions and lighting a few mood candles.
Hopefully. But maybe not, since the house has taken a LITTLE bit longer than expected...
Oh and Elmer is totally in love with his grandparents.
Parents are out with Elmer in town so I'm making the most of the time alone!
The wedding was emotional. Nick's mum sewed hundreds of sequins onto Helene's dress and it was lovely to see her reaction when she saw Helene wearing it that morning. Oh and Nick's reaction when he saw his wife to be. Actually, everyone's reaction when they saw Helene!
There were lots of tears, lots of jokes, lots of beautiful accents, lots of dancing. If you want some crazy skilled dancing at your wedding, why not invite some Latin Americans?
Helene trained as a makeup artist in a previous life, so she did everyone's makeup! One day, I am also going to look that good in my dressing gown...
Lushness. By the way, another incredible floral display from Estelle Flowers, I'll have to get some images up on facebook. And did you notice the lack of portrait/posed images? That's because there weren't any!!! I got to do my documentary thing ALL day and I loved it. Thanks guys.
The Rock. Before being fitted to a ring..
Lush. Isn't it beautiful afternoon light at this time of year?
Elmer is a lot better. He's well enough to be WIDE AWAKE at 9.30pm (yawn).
