Most of the external painting, with the exception of the blockwork is painted in VOC-free paint by the cheerful, singing painters. Lightweight cladding is in two tones of soft green, broken by bands of galvanised flashing.
One of the pavers cast with the flooring concrete has been polished to give an idea of the finish to internal floors. External surfaces will have less polish for safety reasons, particularly around the pool. Internal vj linings from the original house are now complete. These will be painted over for a more consistent look but it is hoped that a feature section in the Living Room will be retained with a clear seal as a historical reference to the old home.
