Let there be plaster!

....and on the 346th day the builder said "let there be plaster".

I'm so excited that plastering has finally begun. We have waited so long to get to this point. 

I have never seen so much plaster delivered in my life. They had to use a crane to get it down the block.

Here are some shots of plaster when it was delivered. You can also see our cornices and metal ceiling battens were also delivered.

All this plaster was delivered more than a week ago. Plastering started a few days ago.

Here are some pictures of the plastering that has been done so far.

Downstairs facing towards the staircase. The powder room is on the right. 

Facing the other side of downstairs. To the right is where we will be putting a bar in. 

Now some upstairs pictures.


Hallways looking towards master bedroom

Entry niches. This is the one opposite the front door.

Inside the theatre room.  That void/cupboard space to the right of the room is where all the AV equipment will be stored.

Solar hot water panels were placed on the roof a couple of weeks ago (terrible photo - it's the best I could do!)


  1. Looks great, can't wait to see more photos! Won't be long until your in.

    1. I hope so Caitlin. This week it will be 12mths since we started to build. We have been told to expect handover late April. I can't wait to get in there so we can sell the house we are living in....two mortgages is killing us!
