Just has a quick browse through the "Lost in Router Space" blog..... It was a very good reminder on how far I have actually come with this house. Maybe because I haven't done much since 2008 until now, I have felt a bit embarassed having people come over to my house for the first time. But looking back through the blog has shown me how bad the house was to begin with and how far I have really come. I am also proud of myself for having some vision and designing my improvements as I have never done anything like this before.
I can't wait now until the house is painted, floors polished and a modern entertaining area out the back - should be quite a presentable little house then!

Here are photos of my new timber front staircase and slats between my concrete posts.
After - no more box or drain
After - all filled in as the drainage has been properly plumbed under the house
New front stairs
Had a talk with Ryan, my builder, about my crappy under cover area. Have pretty much decided to keep the majority of the concrete slab, destroy the current undercover area, then get shade sails installed and paint the good concrete slab to make the whole area look cleaner and more modern. I will have to get quotes for the sails, but will be way cheaper the getting a new patio built,
