Dave, Lachy & Phil must have missed the office mouse they wanted to know why I hadn’t been to visit and to see how well the home extension and renovations were going.  I couldn’t believe the transformation since I was last there when they had only just started removing the roof tiles to begin the second story extension.

Before – the carpenters only just got started!  The building work on the second level is almost completed.

This rear view shows the new upper verandah.  When I took this photo Lachy and Phil were busy putting up the ceiling battens for the lower verandah ceiling.  The clients are having the lower verandah balustrading replaced to match the new upper verandah.

The new internal stairwell just has the balustrading to be installed before the floor polisher does his work. I love the three stepped louvre windows in the stairwell they add so much extra light and ventilation.

These photos show the new upper level lounge / retreat and two bedrooms ready for the floor polisher.

The new upper level extension will add so much space for this family, the kids will love their new bedrooms and lounge area and they will have their own verandah!

Once the stair balustrades are on, the floor and stairs will be polished and then upstairs will just need the bathroom tiled and fitted out.  Down stairs theres plenty happening with alterations and renovations inside and out which the office mouse will show on the next blog installment!
