25.0.1 – Painting Every Day

Since our last update we have moved and been kept busy painting.

25.0 – The House is Ours

We met the builder for the final meeting. The house is no longer a building site and the keys are all ours.

24.0.1 – The (Almost But Not Quite) End

This was to have been our last meeting with the builder. The meeting where everything is signed off and they change the locks and give us the keys. Except it wasn’t.

24.1 – Replacing Halogen with LED Bulbs

I replaced the E27 halogen bulbs in the basement with 5000K LED replacements.

24.0 – List of Problems

We meet the builder for the last scheduled meeting with a list of problems in hand.

23.0 – Orbital Pole Sander

Sanding continues. We have added an orbital pole sander to the mix and are making better progress.

22.1 – Progress Week 62

Watch a short video showing the house progress between week 60 and week 62.

22.0 – Sanding and Painting Plaster Board / Drywall

We have begun patching, sanding, and painting the plaster board/drywall. We started with a test wall before moving onto painting an entire room. Along the way we decide that two coats of under coat/primer are required.

21.1.1 – Time to Work

We are rapidly approaching the time when the builders' work will be done and our work will begin. So many of the finishings are going on now.
