Kitchen has arrived

The kitchen has been installed over the last couple of days. A few minor issues with wiring for lights but all went well. Templates were taken for the bench tops so they can be made over the next week or so and will be installed later. (photo quality is a bit average, bad light....insert excuses here).

We have lockup, well almost!

Scaffolding is all down and the upper half is painted. Apart from the garage doors (these will go in later this week) the house is locked up.
Render is going on the garage and the front area (over the blue board).
Front door with louvres down both sides.

Stairs in behind the windows.

Back of house. Two rooms have strips of 600mm wide aluminium louvres.

Big news - the stairs are in! lower flight are open underneath...

.....upper flight are being build in under. 

Views from the top of the stairs.
