house extension coming along..

Well here are some more pics of what's been happening so far. As you can see the floor has been laid. This is just the yellow tongue. We will put proper floor boards on top when the house is finished.
Frame is up. They did this in 2 days, it has been moving along quite nicely, but the weather lately hasn't been very good. It rained all long week end but my garden loved it, everything is so nice and green again, especially after that dust storm!

This is the other side. I'll have to work out the new garden soon to continue down to the winding part on the side of the house. .

The frame is completely finished and they have started to clad it. We ran out of that and hubby is on his way home right now with the rest of it. This bottom pic is at the back. I'll be having french doors there which eventually will lead out onto a decked area for entertaining.

At the moment the extension looks like I have a house in front of another house but I think and hope that once we do our pergola/entertainment area it will all blend in nicely and look like its always been there. Not long now hopefully and I can get to the best part, doing it up!! Take care ladies, Maryann

Hi Maryann

You must be so excited

I'm sure it will all blend in perfectly, I love the mix of the new with the old, we have similar in our house, nice to have the character - yet some new sections too. The garden also should help to tie it together

happy renovating
