So Week 4 of building Chez Dré is coming to an end. The builders have finished up, packed there tools and hung up their work boots until the new year. The electricians are tying down the last few cables, and getting all the switches ready for the major equipment that is going to be running this space. The plumber has primed us for gas and is ready to start dealing with the little details of bathrooms, etc. when he gets back too. But lucky for us, not everyone does the whole holiday season, and yesterday I was happy to hear that the 27th-29th of December the tiling is going to take place which is such awesomeness!!! But a definite highlight of this week has been the steel guys and their magnificent skills on all the black steel window frames they made from scratch on site. From hand drawn sketches, to a few calculations here and there, to the hours of soldering to the resulting structures, has been such a fantastic process to watch. Such big ups to Phil and Mike for there skills, knowledge and study to their craft! Next step: window panes and door fit-out to match!
