Finally getting somewhere
December 1, 2012 in Before & After
Hi all have had some great advise from the discussion board & picked up a lot of hints from the photo's.Thank you to everyone whose brain I picked.
After our contractor bailing on us my wife took over the project & runs all the builders & labour.
Have just finished putting in the ceilings with the recesses still some trim left to do. Folding doors & staircase in. Staircase still to have finish put on it. The dark floor is marble it comes up really nice when cleaned up. Have had marble floors in the old house for 24 years & looks like it was put down yesterday.
Still a lot of work to do but we are getting there.
Again thanks to all for the great topics on here.

Hi Dytecture,
Attached from photos from before taken from outside & inside. You can see the shell without the ceilings & bare staircase on the right. Picture taken from outside looking back in to where the new folding doors are.
We have come a long way in the last 2 months.

Yeah it is large but is the galley, dining & lounge / tv area all in 1 space. We will divide it up with breakfast bar from galley bar area & some other ideas we are running with. Total open area is about 120 sq m . Opens onto a large 50 sq m patio area with the pool beyond that.
We have always had opened planned houses as it is what the climate calls for. large areas that allow a lot of air flow.
