Pool nearly complete!

Today, after being delayed a week, they finally were able to Pebblecrete the swimming pool.  As usual the workmen were there bright and early at 7am and were finished before lunch.

Acid wash tomorrow and then we will be able to fill it!

Just like icing a cake!

Solar Installed

Since moving to Queensland, we have watched with interest the changes in the price of solar installations and also found that there are a number of  'cowboys' out there offering cheap installations but with inferior inverters and panels. 

The prices for the 'good' companies started off around the $8000 mark and within a few months dropped dramatically by $2000.

At this price we thought we would be crazy not to go ahead and so today we had our 20 panels and 5 KW Sunnyboy Inverter installed.

Concreting around Pool complete now awaiting tiling

Today we had the concreting around the pool complete ready for tiling.  We have decided to go with a 600 x 600 tile rather than paver so that we can create a seamless transition from the poolside to the water edge.
