About two weeks ago I showed my daughters ‘new garden’, well, what is going-to-be the garden of her newly built home (see post here … Intimidating). These past two weeks they have been very busy cleaning up the front areas, erecting a wall around the front, paving the driveway, tiling the swimming pool and tiling the outside entertainment area. Its looking VERY different to the photos I showed you in that post and I’m looking forward to taking photos of the completed hard-scaping they are doing in the front garden area. Its looking superb! (I was banned from taking ‘during’ photos of this phase of the build :) ).

But before I show off their beautiful new home in the next day or so (by popular request), I thought I’d show one last ‘before’ post. Prepare yourself … it’s pretty scary!

These are the photographs I took at this time last year, just after they had concluded the purchase of the house and took ownership of the property.

And here they are, sometime around June this year after the steel beams had been laid (terminology?), well proud of themselves, and rightly so! Shortly after this photo the first bottle of champagne was consumed on the property, right up there on the beam!

On top of the house!

Photos of the new house are here.
