Plastering Complete; Cornices Installed - The house is taking shape!

The internal wall and ceiling lining boards (plaster-boards) were installed in the house earlier in the week. I think everything was up in just one day! A few days later, the cornices were installed throughout the house except in wet areas, where there are square set ceilings.

Next week, according to our SS, the bathrooms, laundry, powder room and toilet areas will be waterproofed with coatings to protect contents underneath or within and to sustain structural integrity. Stairs and kitchen cabinetry materials are also likely to be delivered next week, with installation to follow soon after.

Update from SS on installation of insulation last week: The SS clarified that ceiling cavities on the ground floor do not get insulated, as there are rooms just above them to keep them insulated. Insulation is done on the ceiling cavities on the ground floor only in areas that do not have rooms directly above them, such as Dining and part of Garage.

You will see in the pictures below our beautiful entry door too (yet to be stained).


  1. I just discovered your blog on the BR forum. Your house is looking beautiful and it's great to see work being completed. Also, glad to see another 2 storey house being built. There aren't many of us there :)

  2. Thanks for your comments.

    Yeah, there aren't as many two-storeys as single storey houses in BR. Whom are you building with and what stage of build are you in?
