Well a couple more days have passed and wow the house is looking different! The family/lounge and kitchen are completely painted, just bedrooms and wet areas to go. Thanks to Pete how used his brute strength to manhandle the carpet out of the house and man there was enough dust to make my own compost. Late night last night, early night tonight. Looking forward to seeing Fezza tomorrow! Longtime between drinks and it will be great to show her the dream become reality after 10 years! Thanks again to Vern and Pete for their help and Julie today for helping with the boxes and windows. Still plenty to do and have until Thursday night to get all of the painting done, including trimmings…. Maybe another couple of late nights before work starts up again on Thursday….
