The poor builders spent most of Saturday’s 36 degree heat sweltering in my upstairs bathroom attaching mini-orb and tongue and groove. I’ve gone through a lot of discussions with various builders over my choice of mini-orb since apparently it’s not a material they like to work with. Each of them tried to talk me out of it and a few times I was – there was even a last minute waiver, but ultimately it is now installed and I can’t go back. Luckily I think it looks great and hopefully it won’t suffer too badly over time. I’m tossing with getting a sign made up for it called “The Wool Shed”.
Here are the tiles that cost $58 a square metre to look like rust! But they were worth it achieve the look. 🙂
Obviously the bath isn’t in yet, maybe tomorrow?

Looking really great!! I like the effect upstairs. Are you changing the bathroom door, or keeping it?
Yeah, I know the doors don’t look like much but one of them was from the back door before we put the deck in and the other door has always been there. I kind of like the idea of keeping them both as a nod to the original design of the house – but they obviously need painting. 🙂
Looking good. Been watching all the changes. I don’t know about “The Wool Shed”, mini-orb reminds me of those old above ground pools everyone had a couple of decades ago. Maybe you should call it “The Dip”, which has a foot in both camps. 😉
Ohhh that’s right, forgot about that door actually. Oh gosh, just had a flashback to when the verandah wasn’t there and you had those rickety stairs straight down. Woah, how times change (for the better)
