Mount Taranaki can be seen from the front yard.

Mount Taranaki can be seen from the back yard.

We now have a mailbox

The double sidegates have been made and installed. We goofed a bit in that they should swing outwards but swing inwards. This is how they were put on the plans, but we did not think about it. Will be one of my jobs after we move in to change the gate swing.

some of the landscaping has been done with stone and plants along the house and front fence.

The carpet has been installed

A bit of tile work remains so carpet by kitchen left un finished.

The lawn has been installed in the front yard.

We are thinking of putting up a parabola pergola in this corner as a landscaping feature.
