Now that the laundry/bath and storeroom are pretty much done, it is time to get the passage way done. This week has seen that go from not much to nearly complete. Last week we took delivery of mini orb, in long six metre sheets, needed to do a tidy finish to the ceiling of the passage way, which runs horizontally past half of the back of the house, with the back foyer area in house structure and the new laundry and storeroom spaces across the passage way from the back foyer doorway and windows.
First Ian put up the rest of the insulation batts. I was rather relieved about this, because I wondered what we would do with it all, the left over portion from roof space above laundry and storeroom. I must say, those rooms have stayed temperate, even on hot days, so the insulation is so helpful. None of those rooms or the passage way running in front of them have very lofty high ceilings. So the insulation is essential to keep the area from feeling like a little furnace.

Now you can see on left the passage way ceiling is done. Wiring ready for the flushmount light fitting. Edging neatly applied to finish off the mini orb.
I have been asked what colour will get painted in the passage way. Happy day--the icky sicky mint green paint over render can Finally get covered over. The answer to all of this is a grey colour. something that will look industrial, not too dark, but with lights will look very smart. I have to find a suitable product for the icky green side on the right of the snap, as Ian prefers a textured finish over having to make the existing mess of a finish perfect. The sheet board on left side of the passage way will be the same, but it just needs a primer on the wall finish and then a lick of paint.

Meantime, just outside the passage way (which in last pic is far on right, the dark area)., we have clad the other side of laundry shower wall in colour bond we had left over from other projects here. There were two different colours so it looked patchy and funny. We had some metal paint in a hammer finish that was used on the kitchen island left over. Just enough to do the job. Left photo shows the hammer finish in gunmetal colour way, close up.

meanwhile, with washer and dryer in their new home, there is room in the back foyer for a utility sink area. More on this soon, the plan is drawn up, it awaits its turn for materials procurement now. Maybe late next week even !
Next work after that will be to finish up bits and pieces, and start making the list we need to do the studio enclosure. Its the last job to tackle out back. Stay tuned, as we work to complete the last chapter of the work.
