SNAPSHOTS OF LATEST LAYOUTS, ETC.
Everything well on this side just been busy with various {Doing Life} scrapbook conferences and Expos. At the moment we have got a team of damp proofing and painting experts at our home, fixing the terrible workmanship of the original Builder of our home. We are the first owners, but did not build the home ourselves. We have had a damp problem in our bottom guest room as well as all around the walls. There was no undercoat on the house or any dampproofing on the outside of the house. The windows and doors also have not been sealed. So all the doors and windows are also being re-oiled and properly sealed with silicon. The team has been on site now for two weeks and its probably another three weeks work. We are also putting up gutters next week. These days they manufacture the gutters in a custom colour of the client's choice. We have also chosen two totally new colours of our house and I can't wait to see what its going to look like.
We actually had the builder of our house on site (he lives in the same estate) to come and see the poor workmanship and he just shrugged his shoulders and says its normal for a new house. Well the house is not even 4 years old and all the experts we had around for quotes to fix it, could not believe how bad the house looks. Needless to say we are spending another small fortune on fixing this, but in the end it will help selling our house one day.
I have posted quite a few snapshots of the latest layouts I have created which are available online at {Doing Life} in kit format. So sit back and quickly browse through them if you are curious. Wishing you all a wonderful Womens Day and remember to celebrate who you are.

  2. You certainly have been really busy!! It is shocking that builders can get away with shoddy workmanship at the expense of homeowners. But I am sure it will look stunning once finished. Look forward to seeing you on Friday.
