Upmarket - Downunder

Remember this photo from a little while back, which showed the excavation under the deck in preparation for making an enclosed area to store garden equipment?

Well, this is how it's looking now. Richard has been painting the house walls and under the deck and the difference it's made to the light down there is amazing. Pity the inside of the house wasn't painted so meticulously...lol. The two small doors lead to storage areas under the house (crawl space, I believe it's called in the USA), but I'm sorely tempted to purchase 'Ladies' and 'Gents' signs for each door!

Yes,I would definitely do the signs. That would give you a giggle every time you saw it.

It's amazing how much the white paint lightens the space. Good work Richard!
Yes, definitely get a couple of signs for the doors. No need to purchase them...you've got artist daughters and a handy husband who could cut out a couple of signs :)
Ross says you two could move down there and rent out the house :)

Kerri - it would certainly be the coolest place to live in the summer. Even on the hottest of days it's cool down there.

What a hard-working and clever husband you have. Your project is looking great. You will have to think of other things for him to do when he gets this done.
