Plaster started.

Our solar hot water system has been installed. Our house faces NE and west is on the side of the house that includes are garage. The SHW system has been installed on the roof area behind the garage which is a nice bonus as it can't be seen from the road at all.
As you can see the brand name is Edwards. It seems for our water that Edwards is the reccomended heater to get. Differing brands work best in different water types. For coastal areas the suggested heater was a Solarhart.

Looking through dining slider towards family room.
You can see the unplastered wall through a doorway leading to the front of the house.
The other doorway leads to the minor bedrooms, bathroom and laundry.

The view from the reverse position. standing near the doorway that leads to the front of the hosue and looking towards the dining area sliding door.

This is the view from outside the kitchen window. The doorway is the one leading to minor bedrooms.
From the office window looking in.
In the far view you can see one of the half walls and on to the games room.

The edging.

We've had a surprising bonus. Our builders contract out for the plumbing work and the contractors had their own copy of the plans. However someone, somehow added in a water tap to the fridge/freezer space on their plans. This is something that a lot of "upmarket' homes now have as fridges with an ice/cold water function are becoming popular. The plumber followed his plans and we've ended up with a tap. We have no use for it since we have no intention of getting one of those types of fridges but since the contractors have been paid and there is no additional cost our builders were happy to leave it there if we didn't mind. We've worked out that it won't cause a problem for us so we are leaving it there. Darn shame they didn't accidentally plumb in the dishwaher void. It would have been one more step towards getting Gra to agree to having one. rats!

Really looking great Kexkez! Can't believe how fast your house is progressing. We have ironstone for the gutters fascia and downpipes and lighter bricks as well! You obviously have great taste LOL.

You house looks great from the road and bonus with the water tap!
