Tradies on Hols

Bricking a house

Progress has been slower in the last few weeks. School holidays might mean that the tradesmen have taken a break. But they were back at work early last week getting ready to lay the bricks.

However over the next week or two, the house will look a lot different as the external coverings are completed.

Building a house

Weatherseal and windows have been installed. External and Internal doors to Laundry and Front of House. Now we could get much more of an idea of the ultimate size of the rooms.

The plasterboard and front door

I am being asked about window coverings. In building a house, you are required to think a long way ahead. Before you anticipate you need to do so.

The MOTH does not like shutters, yet everywhere we go – shutters are visible in many houses. I do agree I don’t want shutters everywhere, as it tends to look too much, but it does say Coastal, and we are at the coast.

Vertical blinds are out, and if it is curtains, they certainly have to be easily washable, otherwise they are major dust collectors, and blow about in the wind. And we do live by the water, when wind is a prevailing force.

What would you suggest? What do you prefer?
