Next Render...

The next coat of render is going on the inside walls the weekend coming - 21 & 22 July - thanks to Mr Sir who worked his butt off the past week or so to finish all the cobbing. 

We can now proudly claim that the walls are (almost) straight and window surrounds are (pretty much) even.  Our biggest dilemma is, however, that its so bloody cold this time of year in Melbourne, especially near the hills, that the render is just not drying quick enough.  So we've gone out and hired our very own Wall-e... ain't it cute?  and his partner is working in the next room.

Chippy mates have also done a great job laying the merbau decking, which may I add looks damn fine.

And the narcissist in me has to point out the awesome painting I've been doing of the eave boards... no doubt my chiropractor will thank me later!

Anyone interested in getting up close and personal to see the render process in action next weekend (and the third inside coat is booked for 4-5 August) is welcome to come along for a geeza.  No help required!  My advice tho... wear your oldest and warmest gear plus wellies... it's a cold muddy place to visit!
