Nearing completion, 31/03/08, some decking going onto the far end. (re-cycled plastic and wood dust) A start to the steps at the near end. New breeze (or breese?) block support columns replacing the brick. The ground underneath is weedproofed, and the floor back in, with carpeting and insulation. New wood panels on the North West side, old ones on the South West. Plasterboard on the inside, Cementboard underneath. Cats dozing inside. They'll have to move out for the door to be cut into the living room.
Cutting the door hole was a bit of a task, but well worth while, the amount of dust you get from a disc saw is amazing, and it was inside, so visibility after a few seconds is down to a foot.
A good minimum if you don't want to cut your own foot off.
The wall was three bricks thick and solid, no air gap at all.
I left the plasterboard on the living room side up till last, to keep the dust out, that worked well, but the rest was a messy business, even with dust sheets.
Now the main structure is just about done, I'll need to get the building warrant adjusted for the decking at the end, and a bit of decorating here and there.
