95% Complete!

We finally moved into our new pad around the middle of January. Although not 100% complete it was livable. Even now still loads to do but we are getting things done slowly.  Still no kitchen units but looks like this may have to wait a few more months as funds are getting low.  Here is a few  of shots of the outside.  Still a few bits unfinished but hopefully I can work on these through the low season months.

Had loads of progress on the house in the last couple of weeks. So much  so that I hope to be spending my birthday in there on new years day! Many of the neighbours have been curious about what colour we are going to paint it but are then quite surprised when we tell them that the raw plaster is the finished surface. Actually at the moment it does look gray and imposing but we still have some wooden cladding to go on part of the front elevation so hopefully this should soften the look along with a bit of greenery once we have done the landscaping.

Plastering inside and out is nerly finished!

Some progress at last

Well its been a while since I last posted an update about the progress of our house on Wualia Rd. It should have been finished by now but we had some major problems with the plaster cracking and most of the inside plaster had to be re-done. Anyways things are back on track and plastering has nearly finished inside and we have started plastering the outside a couple of days back.  Hoping it will be finished by the end of the year.

Wualai House refurb – Latest Pics

A few recent pics of our house on Wualai Rd. Actually these are a couple of weeks old  but I will post some more up to date ones in the next couple of days.

Our New House on Wualai Rd

When we bought our new pad on Wualai Rd we both knew that it was in need of some major modernization, I definitely wanted something a bit different but I was aware that we had to work with the old structure if we wanted to keep with in our budget. I had a few of my own ideas but me and Tack decided to work with an architect who we hoped would come up with something a bit more creative than we could muster ourselves.

Well the pics below are some of the prelim drawings and I have to say I am more than happy with them.  We should start the building works next week and will be posting some of the progress pics soon.
