I'm about to show you some before and after photos that are going to make you laugh, because they represent such a small difference in the actual improvement of our old girl and, actually, it's possible that the after looks worse than the before...
Dan is still working away, when he has 8 seconds, on the interior of the big house. The other day, he got to replacing the windows in the little room at the end of the verandah that was once the post office and will soon be my home office.
Here's the outside after the holes were cut in the aluminium cladding:
And here's what it looked like after: Two little windows in the middle of an ugly sea of mouldy aluminium cladding and junk.
Here's what our dining room and kitchen currently looks like. As you can imagine, we're not spending much time here!
Today, our splashback tile arrived. It's the Amity tile from Tera Nova in NSW. It's a floor tile and is a little thicker and chunkier than anticipated, but I think it'll still be OK as a wall tile... I hope so, anyway. Otherwise, we'll keep it for the floor of the bathroom.
I think it's time to go outside.
Until next time....
