We'll the renovations have started. The builders called on Tuesday and said they wanted to come out and take some last minute measurements and we said fine no problem as long as they were on the outside because we were out having breakfast. Anyway, we come home and there are the builders apparently done with measuring and they are tearing the back of our house down. I guess I should not complain as we figured they would not start until after the Christmas holidays, but alas no.
What they have done so far looks brilliant. It is far exceeding our expectations. I am taking pictures and will be posting them shortly. I unfortunately don't have a good picture of the before but I'll see what I can find.
They say they will be finished with the outside wall by Friday and then they will start replacing the old deck on Monday. the inside work in the kitchen which is minimal is going to have to wait until after the holidays and it is also being dome by a separate carpenter, who is being over seen by the contractors.
So anyway it's all happening here. We will not get to enjoy the immediate impact for long as we are heading out of town late Friday to go see Elton John. He is touring Australia in special small venues with just his piano. All the reviews that we have read said the show is brilliant and he plays for three hours. It will be a great show and very intimate.
That's all I have at the moment, but I'll work on the pictures. Until then enjoy...
