Construction Update 12: More walls, stairs and a light at the end of the tunnel

Construction update feature

It’s been over two years since we started this home build journey and I can finally say I see a light at the end of the tunnel!

For so long, I never thought we’d build because we’d considered renovating/extending for a long time before we decided to bite the bullet and just start from scratch. It wasn’t until our old house had been picked to pieces that it set in there was no going back!

Since we started in September, there have been bursts where progress has been fast and times when it feels like a movie on verrryyyyyy slow motion. Thankfully this past week has been one of the fast bursts.

In our house, the insulation has gone in and the plasterer has put up all the ceilings and Gyprocked most of the walls. I’m most excited by the upstairs area because of that raked ceiling and all the natural light the space gets.

Yesterday the base of the stairs also went in so we no longer have to risk it on a ladder 🙂

From here, the plasterer will need another week or two to plaster and square set the windows. Once that dries we’ll be able to paint and it will actually feel like a house we can live in!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this pace continues so we can move in asap!

  1. Gina, I love your progress posts! Your house is looking fantastic, the raked ceiling is gorgeous.

    We are at such a similar stage – our gyprocking is finished and the floor polishing will be completed by tomorrow. And then I think they will move on to finishing off the windows and architraves. I was holding my breath about the polished concrete but I couldn’t be happier with how it has come up – love it. I think the timber cladding will be finished tomorrow also but we still have some colorbond cladding and rendering to be done on the outside – the cladding has been really slow.

    • Thanks Anthea and I love hearing about your house progress too! How funny that we have so many similar elements between our houses 🙂 Sounds like your house will be absolutely stunning and no doubt you’re itching to move in like I am! Our cladding has also been taking forever and it’s still not done – hopefully it will be before we move in, ha ha!

  2. Looks great Gina sounds like it’s been a while in the making but I’m sure it’ll be worth it once you’re in!
