a fleeting glimpse.

today is one of those rare times, when one can see a thing in the middle of a transformation, from one almost permanent state to another. between those two states another one is revealed, and the only thing that can capture this is a photo. or a drone shot. yesterday the guys removed the scaffolding,…

shades of white.

now all our internal walls are up, and as of this week, finished to near perfection, it is time for some colour. disappointingly perhaps, on most surfaces this colour will be white, which contains, physically, all colours, but could be seen as a bit of a cop out when it comes to design choice. fair…

perspective.

things are progressing well: the plasterer is applying the third (and last) coat to all the plaster walls and suspended ceilings, and the renderers have been back to finish the internal walls (i think there may be some buts & pieces left), plus an external ‘trial’ bit, so we could see what it would be…

needs more duct tape?

there is the rule that if something can’t be fixed with duct tape … you’re not using enough duct tape. so we went a little feral, but i’m sure this is fine. so here’s our duct-tape-guerilla-rig of a stormwater pipe re-direction designed to fill the firefighting water tank – the combined 48,000 liter of rain…
