Catching Up For The Newcastle Class Project

The builder is scheduled to start this week and is waiting on steel. We’ll be checking on him to see how the Newcastle class project is progressing. We’ve been able to:

  • Complete the main part of the demolition
    • Until the steel beams are installed we can’t remove some of the wall frames (see pic above)
  • Secure removal of asbestos from the site
  • Secure doors from a local supplier
  • These will be the stacker-type doors at the back of the house to open onto the deck

Have you listened to our podcast episode about our Class Renovation Project?

Newcastle Class Project Builder Start Up Main Agenda For This Week

We were planning to go up last week and we decided to hold off to see what happened in terms of the lockdown but that situation hasn’t really improved.

Here are the things we are looking to get started on this week:

  • Getting the builders set up and operating
  • Choosing the external colours

Here are some options the team has been considering for exterior colours – so far Option 1 is a favourite:

Good News Despite Newcastle Class Project Challenges

Keeping the budget on track is a bit challenging. It’s a good thing we have sorted out the problem with the backdoor.  We will work with the Stacker Doors for this class project and they will do the 4-metre door for $2,990. This is a reasonable price, brand new and all organised!

Bathroom Floor Idea For The Class Project

We found a nice Promenado Greige textured tile in Beaumont Tiles for the bathroom floors. It is porcelain and good enough to use and be functional and stylish. 

She Renovates Free Facebook Group

If you want to meet up with a group of savvy renovators. I would say come over and join She Renovates Facebook Group. It’s a completely FREE Facebook group and it is growing at the rate of knots. We hit over a thousand members just recently, and now it seems to have picked up momentum. They are all savvy renovating women and men working their little hearts out to live a better life through renovating.
