MORNING TEA? HA HA HA!!!

So, I got a text from Paul (Archgola guy) yesterday.

He said it was a definite 'GO' for today, but he would be a little late.  I am to expect him at around 10 am.
I said that's great cos it will give me time to get outta bed!
He came back with "And it will give you time to make morning tea".

I sent back this :  *SNORT*

Can you see me making anyone morning tea?  I don't think so!  Then again, *SIGH*.... I might pop down to the local hot bread shop and buy something.
I am not going to bake anything, that's for sure.  It's too tempting to eat home made yummy's.

So anyway... expect photos of the construction over the next couple of days... exciting stuff!
I'm like a kid in a candy store... 

Right, that's it for now... catch ya later.

ONWARD...

I've been down, bought morning tea, done the housework and now... the blokes have arrived.
Bang on time too... which is amazing!  So often tradesmen arrive late.

So, they are unloading all the stuff... and setting up.  Three of them... all good!


AND... IT'S HAPPENING.
The guys are onto it.  They've had their morning tea too, so my job is done.  *smiles*


More to come... later.

Just found out that the side curtains won't be arrived for a couple of weeks!  So, no 'moving in' will be happening just yet.
DAMN.  I didn't know that.  But as Paul pointed out, they couldn't take precise measurements for the curtains until the Archgola framing was up.

So... *sigh*, I have to wait some more!  I can show you the finished 'Archgola' by tomorrow though I guess.  And I can place stuff under it for a 'look see' how it will all fit I suppose?


ABOVE: Lastly for the day, the first piece of roofing material going on.

They will be back tomorrow to do the finishing off, then we wait for the side curtains.

We have the lovely Jacqui from Tauranga staying with us tonight, so a lovely evening chatting envisioned.

Time to relax.

End of Day:  an awesome day.  So happy the Archgola is up.
nite nite

  8. It will be great! Could I ask though how do they "waterproof" the house side? If the roof runs down there will the water come in?

  9. I just checked some photos, looks like it goes over the guttering - that would make it watertight :)

    Cor blimey girl. You're getting good views of the workmen's asses! The third bloke in the dark blue t-shirt doesn't seem to be doing much. Whip his ass girl! Bet you and Jacqui are having fun ;)!
