Classroom Renovation

We have finally renovated our classroom/office/laundry.

Day 1 We cleared the room – Oh where to move everything in a small house? Most of the furniture was pushed over to the walled side to allow room for our builder to come in and cover the bricks

Day 2 The washing machine was moved for the first time in about 6 years… nasty

          The walls started going up

Day 3 Public holiday but our wonderful builder friend dropped in for an hour to do a bit more.

Day 4 Last bits of wall went up and gaps were filled.

Day 5 At 3am – crazy storm hit and ruined my old childhood desk sitting outside under our patio. Miss 6 is happy, she'll be getting a nice new desk soon.
         Plastering and sanding – eek the dust!

Day 6 Painting! I love the colour it’s a really light yellow – quill.

Night of Day 6 Computer was reconnected. Furniture moved back in.

Day 7 First load of washing in a week… rain rain rain – fits of laughter

Day 8 Rest

Day 9 Back to school!
