Day 203: Rendering work started

Hi friends,

The build is progressing well with the following items been completed during last week:

- Painting has been completed around the house except the porch ceiling
- Screeding for the showerbase in the bathroom and ensuite has been completed
- Installation of remaining boundary timber fence and the timber wing/side gate
- Electrical fittings been partially installed e.g batten light holders, powerpoint covers etc.

Today they started the acrylic rendering work to the front facade with a coat of render around the external front bedroom walls. The render seems to be very thin as the brick mortar can still be seen, I'm not sure if they will apply another coat before they paint but hopefully they will. In addition, tilings to the bathroom, ensuite, laundry, and toilet has started. They also started installing the fitting for the ceiling fan in the meal room.


  1. Hi
    With the rendering I thought it was a mortar mix and not a paint .
    I saw our renders use a mortar mix .

  2. Hi Andy,

    You are correct it is not a paint but a mortar mix which is trowelled on. The renderer did applied some more render coat today and it looked much better.

    Congratulations on reaching your PCI and hopefully they will fix all the outstanding issues so you can be moving in soon.
