Rain Rain and Mud

It's been raining almost non stop, the site is a mud pit and work had to finish early on Friday as the cladding crew didn't fancy getting wet. The forecast for next week is mixed it may be sunny or it might rain who knows? We really want another dry spell so they can finish the cladding and get it painted. They have started the front area over the garage and have half finished cladding over the beams in the outdoor room. Once they are done and painted then the scaffolding will come down and the pool can be excavated, we were originally planning to have been digging early August now it will be mid September which isn't a drama. However, the people who were going to take our excess soil don't want it now so we will have to advertise and make more arrangements which is a bit of a pain.

I think from my sneaky look through the other day that all the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms are installed now and just waiting for their bench tops. Not really sure what is next on the agenda but Tom our SS thinks the tiles should be in the country tomorrow and then on site a couple of days after. Well the tilers are going to have a lot of cleaning up to do before they start as you can't see the floor for dust, saw dust, bits of wood, left over gyprock and empty packets. (Yes I can't stand the mess, Sandy wanted to go and sweep up yesterday but thankfully we are locked out so had a lazy TV day instead!).

It's odd isn't it but the more that gets put in the house the bigger it seems?! I think we will just all huddle together in one room to start with as that is what we are used to doing in the apartment. I think we'll need a map and GPS to start with once we move in. But oh boy it's going to be awesome for hide and seek!

Have been looking at wallpaper for a feature wall in our boy's room thought this would be cool....
