A lot of work putting the kitchen in order today. Loads more to do!

Hinoki bath tub in

Had my first bath in this last night. Wonderful! The scent of Japanese cypress while bathing. I actually laughed aloud with glee!

This bathtub will be kept full of 40 degree hot water all winter using a special electric thermostat heater. With insulated lid, Initial calculations put the cost at around +20 dollars per month.

Bathing in the Japanese style, this bathtub is only used for soaking. Now I just need to finish the bathroom itself.

First tinkle on the ivories

Office space gets a digital piano. Long way to go before this is a real office, but music helps!

First use of upstairs 'office'

The reason I bought this land was to be able to write and work with views. As I write I am sitting down to work for the first time at this makeshift mini-office in what will become the upstairs apartment.

Upstairs workshop

Clearing all the materials from the living room allowed me to reorganize all the timber and tools into a dedicated workshop area upstairs. This will be the stage for the rest of the inside fitting out.


And the dishwasher in from the old place. Nice.

Washing machine

At last! No new to tramp to the old place to do laundry. What a relief!

Small reading area

Moving out from the old house and decided to create a small reading library on the north side of the living room. Eventually, this area will be a floor to ceiling library with a ladder.
