Renovation update, we have totally given up on the lounge room for now. After a years work involving ripping plastic wood cladding off the walls, finding and repairing whopping great big holes and old doorways that never got filled in. Then days and days of plastering, sanding and painting it has all come to a grinding halt. You see one wall is left to be completed, this is the wall we are going to attach the huge flat screen we don’t have to. But because we might get one when we eventually get sick of the blue snow storm we currently watch we were thinking of sorting out all the wiring in the wall.
Then they day before we were going to begin it rained. Now in Australia it can be a little dry at times and really since we bought this house we haven’t had that many bad patches of rain. But this day it just decided to tip it down and as I was walking through the lounge room I noticed a slivery snail trail appear on the wall. As I stood there watching the trail grew, the wall oozed wetness and within a few minutes I had one of those new fangled waterfall features in my room. Just in case you haven’t got the significance water and electrical wiring projects don’t mix. So first of all we have to find and repair the leak. As we have no idea how to do that and frankly got so sick of the weepy walls attitude we decided to take a break and fix the kids rooms up. Actually we had to sort it out as Sabi keeps rolling over in the night bashing her head on the cot and waking up.
So bed making here we come. We tried putting bunks in the piddley little rooms but it just becomes so claustrophobic and dark plus we have night walkers and walking off the top bunk is not the best idea. This is the solution we came up with, the first bed is on a platform just off the floor then the second bed will go along the green wall just under the window sill overlapping the bottom bed at the end.
The bottom bed came together perfectly, the top one we’ll get around to just as soon as we figure out what we are doing.
