My new carport & workshop project


I have now painted the wc room's walls & trim; all the trim in the laundry is completed & painted & drywall sealed. My office has had a "extreme makeover" over the last 3 weekends, new drywall on one wall, prepared and painted walls, ceiling & trim... bye bye ugly brown ceiling... yaay, it made the room so dark!
Unpacking and sorting out decades of books, magazines and reenactment gear took a whole day, and its not all done, though, apart from the uniforms, its all in the room. I used 2 of the kitchen cabinets to store some of it... add Build bookcases to my list of things yet to do!
I've also added a pic of the stained cedar shingles, didn't have a pic handy when doing my last post.

My new carport & workshop project


I've done a few more projects over the last couple of months--front path and steps onto the deck, completed & painted the carport ceiling, painted the end wall of the house, and laid the finish layer of gravel on the driveway.
This Christmas, I built the retaining wall and replacement fence where I took down the old fence to give the house removal guys access. That was an ideal opportunity to get rid of the mess left by the drainlayers, and dispose of a pile of rubble that had accumulated from the paving & driveway projects.
Both house and workshop have been signed off by council now, leaving me to do all the finishing off bits.
