This week the remainder of the kitchen joinery was installed and on Thursday during our site meeting, the marble for the benchtop was delivered and fitted. The splashback in front of the kitchen window consists of a single 20mm thick piece of honed marble which, when the morning sun hits it, becomes opaque and highlights the grey veining in the stone - it looks like it's been backlit:

A clear, ventilated skylight in the ensuite shower has been installed, bathing the entire room in natural sunlight. Despite that there are no window openings in the ensuite, the light quality is fantastic and will become even brighter once the room is painted and tiled with gloss white wall tiles:

Painting has commenced in the extension at the rear - the hallway and bathroom (which is a series of small rooms for the WC, shower and washbasin) has a similar feel to a built-in verandah of an old Queenslander:
And the first of the bed plinths in the kids' rooms is almost complete. (It is the exact size for a single bed mattress to fit on top). The cabinet maker constructed the 4-drawer unit which is now being encased in Blackbutt timber.
I'm guessing there is only six weeks to go before handover - packing has already commenced.
