There’s been movement at our house this week in readiness for the renovations.
When we bought the place back in 2002, we were aware it had two extensions that would’ve been completed in the ’70’s.
They were both fibro extensions and this appealed to us mainly because they would be easy to take down. It was preferable than having besser block or brick extensions that we didn’t like.
So this week those add-ons have been removed. Firstly the asbestos removalists had to come in and take away the asbestos. I wasn’t allowed on site to take photos of the men in their moon suits and face masks hosing down the fibro before removing it, wrapping it tightly and taking it away.
It made the house very breezy.
Next the demolition team came in to remove carpets, windows, roof tiles, flooring and framework.
Now it looks really strange without the extra rooms.
On a prettier note, I spent Wednesday at Designex, the annual architecture and design trade show. Not sure if I’ve been to too many of these now, but nothing much jumps out at me as being new or different. I did enjoy getting up close and personal with the Anna Spiro wallpapers though. They are very pretty and have that handcrafted look to them. All in typical Anna colours too.
