Painting the roses red...









Due to a long story of reliance on others to perform when they said they would... our roof is finally in the first stage of getting fixed from when I fell through it on New Years. The hot breezy drafts that have hit us whilst sitting on the couch for the past four months are now a thing of the past. Dustin asked one of his friends at work (Mike) to come around Thursday night and give us a hand patching it up. After an hour long trip to the local Bunnings (with apparently some not so helpful staff who did not know what gyprock/drywall/plasterboard was), Mike then proceeded to do the whole patch job himself with Dustin and I helping where we could. I learned a lot because the whole way through the patching process Mike was kind enough to take time to teach me how it was done and why things had to be done the way they were so the surface would be smooth and unnoticeable once painted etc. Later on Mike will come back over and sand it down and finish it off. Several days later Dustin and I still walk into our loungeroom and still expect to see a whole in the roof as we had gotten used to it being there. See pictures.
