Over the weekend we began gyprocking the bedrooms. The children contributed with a great team effort. They threaded the battens up through the ceiling cavities. Marking and laying out, they then screwed the battens on. It was rather a time consuming job, meanwhile PC and I began the gyprocking. Each sheet had to be measured […]
All of our gyprock(drywall) and bats arrived today!:) Very, very exciting:) Gyprock doesn’t take long to glue and screw to the walls and ceilings. So in a very short time we will have rooms!!

Progress of a much faster nature were the windows. Bathroom window with frosted glass. Toilet window is also in. The girls bedroom window. The two […]
The windows have arrived!! Lots of windows and sliding doors waiting for PC to install. He will have his offsiders of course, but he has the talent.
