Mom’s house being built (October)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. The picture this month is the garage roof being finished. But the discussions were on paint colours inside the house: I’ve gone over this so many times and changed it so many time I decided I better send it and get it over with!!!!!!!!! the colors are taken from the “Delux Trade – Classic Colour Range” booklet.

Mom’s house being built (September)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. Well, back in late July I told mom that, i’ll take pictures tomorrow. padraig wants to make it all neat for the pictures. the inside insulation is up, the door frames are up, the window sills are in, the outside is plastered and the ceilings are up. it should be plastered before you get here so you can smear bits of paint on the walls to test out colors.

Mom’s house being built (July)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. Oddly the house discussions in email didn’t really reflect this month’s picture.

Anyway, this was the question I relayed from the builder: you have door frames. padraig’s wondering about window sills in the en-suite and main bathroom. Read more

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. The feedback this month: Thanks, love my hallway and I think I figured out the ceiling in the living room.

Mom’s house being built (April)

The discusion in March was about the fireplace. She asked for measurements for the fireplace - I hope I answered that on the phone because I didn’t in email! This was the month I quit smoking - apparently I quit on the 22nd of April, 2002.

Mom’s house being built (March)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. The update that seems most relevant for these pictures is from late February: a whole bunch of boards were dropped off next door this morning. could not figure out what the noise was - even went up in my attic to see if the roof was coming off. finally looked out and there they were dropping off wood.
