A Progress Report

Remember this frame work?
After that stage the insulation went in. I'm assured that's not actually Persion fairy floss.
Then the coffered ceiling was lined with vj board. We're doing the ceilings and walls downstairs with vj board rather than plasterboard, even though it is significantly more expensive. We want the lower level to look as much like upstairs as possible, and so our ceilings are also 2.7m high at a minimum, rather than the usual 2.4m.
Now things are taking shape and getting very interesting.....


  1. LOVE that you've got high ceilings downstairs! And the coffered ceiling looks great! I've always thought that would be a great idea when building under a Queenslander.

  2. Worth every cent the VJ board,looks great!
    I think if you had plaster boarded it,it would have looked more contemporary.
    Enjoy the last few sunny days of the School Holidays
    We are on the Gold Coast!

  3. It's looking fabulous. I can't wait to see it all finished.
