February and quite warm. The vegie garden has done some strange things due to humidity and I’ve petty well cleared the summer plantings out, except for permanent strawberries (crying out that they need attention) asparagus and the happy little blueberries. Tomatoes are very nearly done, and will probably go next week but there’s a few jars of pesto still in the basil, although I don’t have a kitchen and won’t for two more weeks. It should have gone in on Thursday, but time here is flexible and there’s a 2 week hold up.
I have left home – no kitchen, no bed so I’m living at the studio I’ve been sharing with an old friend who is an artist. I say studio, but it’s a lovely cottage in the bush not too far from her house but out of range for privacy. Colin stays on, needs to guard the site with it’s open walls and easy access, he says.
A few pics:
The internal wall linings are in, generally, and next week the front extensions will be ready to have plaster hung. Also next week the timber will go down on the kitchen floor so the sander can come in and sand and finish before kitchen installer stomps all over it!
Now for the front bit – I like this because the sticking out bit is MY STUDY.
The first pic is looking out through the old kitchen, the second looking in through the same wall. The final three are Colin and Phil erecting the frame. On the third one, the old silver lining paper is the wall of the bathroom which will come out about a metre, eventually, and the very last one is right up to the minute, 3.59, Friday February 27, 2015.
