- bricks are about 85% on - there's still some big chunks to do but they should get it finished next week
- solar is partly on
- some more plumbing has happened such as the cylinder is now in the roof, the standard bath is in... And I am so glad that I tested the one that's going in the ensuite because the main bath looks like the one in our rental place which is tiny - even smaller than the one we had at Aranui.
- we had a walk-through with the electrician last Wednesday and he seems like a good guy so hopefully there will be one area that we don't have to worry about. saved us a bit of cash too - we were going to have these fancy copper sticky-out lights around the house on the BBQ side but he pointed out that the french doors would swing into them so we're going for much cheaper adjustable halogen down-lights in the surfeit.

Its our anniversary today :-) and its been a pretty nice day. We went out to try out a horse that is for sale, which went pretty well, then out to the farm - rode Lad a bit, attached the big water pipe for the house water to the pump, and shortly we're going out for dinner at Pedro's, a Spanish restaurant. House is still progressing very slowly.
