The electric boxes were in when I went the first time. The roof trusses are above and looking sturdy. The walls have been plastered.

On Sunday after I'd closed up the shop, we drove up to Caroline's to meet her brother, Nick who'd come from Durban for the day. We clicked immediately with this school teacher who loves the outdoors. We sat and drank tea and ate carrot cake on Caroline's front veranda.
The view from the property - this will be our front view too, if we wish
Grant and Nick discuss where the outside door to Caroline's laundry will go. Caroline looks on. I will access this room from the veranda to do my laundry
The hot water system which we call a geyser is installed at our cottage
The plumbing is installed
The indoor outlet pipes are in; the electric cables are fitted
The electric cables are overhead and waiting to be connected
There will be downlights and ceiling fans in the open plan area and in our bedroom
Yesterday the windows were fitted and the sliding door is in.
Next, the ceilings will go in. The plumber will tile the shower and kitchen.
When I next post, the floor will have been screeded; the walls will be painted. The laminated flooring will be fitted.
As I write, the cabinet maker has the materials and will fit Caroline's kitchen with new cupboards. The cupboards he's removing from her kitchen will immediately be fitted into my kitchen.
How long since the very first day when the TLB leveled the ground?
It's all coming together very nicely!
I'm linking to Our World Tuesday here
HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!
