Building Work - so far..

So Roh's been busy building the frames for the top level of our extension. He started the framing on the 14th Feb and got the far wall up.

The larger gaps are the spaces for our bathroom and ensuite windows - floor to ceiling glass to let in as much natural light as possible. I think I mentioned before, that we redesigned the main bathroom layout, and these windows were part of those changes. Love natural light.

Roh got up on the roof of the existing house to take this photo. These are going to be the kid's bedrooms. Jude's is the one closest to us, Lana's the back one. We've figured out who gets what room by the size of the built-in-robe - obviously the larger wardrobe goes to the girl of the house...lol...especially this girl who loves her clothes, shoes and accessories..he he. The rooms actually aren't that different in size though, so I don't think the kids will really care.
Here's the bathroom framing going up.

And here's a photo of the smoke from the fire, when it first started at about 2.45pm on Monday. This was taken from our roof.
Have got a super busy day ahead - packing, cleaning and more packing :-P Oh well!

I'm glad everyone we know in Upwey is OK. I remember driving home on Monday with Anton about 5pm and it was a mass exodus and bumper to bumper traffic towards Melbourne. I love your new renovations and the way it is coming along. Can't wait to see the finished product, all decorated A La Kellie!
