As the Makita radio blasts out “come on eileen” into the crisp July morning air broken by the echo of a sledge hammer hitting a peg…. I breath in and look around the tidy bare green section… “here we go again babe’ Jason laughs to me. Yep, we a building another house and It feels exciting!
I remind myself that it always does feel exciting at first! Will I feel differently, as I always do when I am carrying bales & bales of pink batts at 6:25pm on a chilly Saturday night, careful not to bump the builders lamps? Or when Jas is asking me “did you vacume that framing before you put those batts in?... I don't know.
This build might be different! I may not be a broken woman in 6 months time… But this time we have a two year old force of nature to add to the equation. But this time we also have Jason's enthusiastic apprentice Drew on board too… I’m feeling positive!
I am drifting off thinking of kitchen colours, bathroom tiles and ceiling detailing… this will get me through! When I am water-blasting concrete off boxing.. This will get me through!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
