It has been a bit quite over Christmas with our blog but that's because it was Christmas. We managed to move in on the 19th of December, just before the holiday season started. The house is not finished yet but we have one toilet going, a shower, basin and half a kitchen. Enough for us to have a real Christmas.
The holiday turned into a bit of a working holiday with lots of work still to be done. First on the list is gibbing of the internal walls. The "door man" also came around but we still have to wait until he is back from holiday before we have any doors.

Some hard work has gone this week but all the interior has been finalised. The plastering crew has gone home to get some rest after two weeks on the job and we are preparing for the next big job (for us), the staining of the floor. Plasterers will be back next week to finish the outside.

Detailing and netting is now in full swing and we are making good progress. Added quite a few pictures to our flickr.com photo site - just double click on one of pics in the blog and follow the link. Have a look for some of the details.
The house is now also connected to the electricity, water and phone network. Quite a big job as far as digging and dirt is concerned but it was all done in one day.
Esther is also oiling the rafters as did needs to be done before plastering and before the builders move the scaffolding out of the house. It is now hands on deck for the whole family and everybody is doing a bit.
We are still two weeks of plastering but we are getting pretty close now. Really looking forward to that stage.
