The long goodbye to the blue hut

So the builders have been busy- and the timber cladding is slowly going up. I think of it as a reverse strip tease!
I only had the little point and click camera, and conditions were not the best, but I think you can get the idea.

Rob has been busy painting every single one of those boards with a preservative to stop the boards going silver, or black with mould. It really is very smelly, after a day helping him move the boards around we both ended up with head aches. Not nice. But he's nearly finished. Will post more as the blue continues to disappear.

That's really exciting Hazel. The dodgy smell and headaches will all be worth it at the end :)

Looks great, you sound very excited!

It's getting there Steve and Sarah. I still wonder about that first night we'll spend there. It will take a little while to sink in I reckon.
A few things to do still before then though, just little things like kitches, septic tanks, bathrooms!

How exciting with a Tasmanian blogger!!!
Wow :-)
I immediately think of the Tasmanian Devil. Are they frequent over there?

Best wishes, Anna
