A week of the house - day 1

Even though the house is still at progress stage, I know, some of you, are dying to have a look around.
So, beginning with today, I shall take you on a little tour - just so you can see how much work we still have to do!!

Beginning with the front of the house!
We still have to do the front steps, landscape, paint the front door, build the colomns around the blue steel posts and crazy pave the porch and a path to the steps.
We had the concreting done two weeks ago which included the driveway, the porch and a few paths around the house.
It is so nice to be able to use the front door now! Before the concreting was done it was a big black hole that everybody seemed to want to throw rubbish into. Two huge skip bins later, it was cleared out and filled in.
About 20 minutes after Dad had finished installing the front door handle, we had a visitor.
He was the first one to come through the front door.
I shall open the door for you tomorrow........
