Shaping Up

The deck is coming along
with the roof going on in sweltering 45 deg heat through the week.
Just a good paint and a few trims and she should
look like she's always been part of the house.

Now we just need a reliable concreter to move on with the next stage
of building underneath the house.
We thought we had that all sorted, but the world of tradespeople is a fickle place.

First Post for 2013 (after a brief blogging hiatus)

Hello dear blogger friends and a Happy New Year to you for 2013.
I am afraid I have been in a bit of a blogging funk of late 
and have not been posting due to frustration with being unable to alter
some very annoying elements of the look of my blog.
Anyone who has visited recently may have been faced with
being unable to read information on my site due to some
awful default colours which I just could not remove/change, no matter how hard I have tried.
I seem to have got MOST of these horrid colours off my blog for now
and hopefully things are a little easier on the eye.
Apologies for the state of things lately.

The installation of our deck is coming along fairly smoothly.
There was a delay with the roof going on, so alas no roof for Xmas.
The old verandah roof is still being held up by temporary posts,
but this old roof will be coming off soon and things will be moving along now that 
the Xmas/New Year holiday period is, alas, over.
Lots of work to be done yet, but we have managed to make
some cosy corners in which to enjoy a good book through the holiday lull
and the house is already much more livable .
