We used blockwork where the back of the bedroom storage / corner of pantry will be (as there was no real point in wasting good rock where it wont be seen) and that went in quickly compared to rockwork. As it was, we put some pretty good bigguns in the rest of the pantry and laundry.

|I love the look of this stuff when wet|
I have fond memories of my grandma's bluestone house in Warrandyte and a great mental image is that of heavy rockwork behind the shelving. Anyway, there are a fair few little beauties that wont be on daily display so I gotta suck it up and move on.
|laundry and pantry. prolly wont see these much but I know that they're there.|
Had a fair bit of cleaning up to do so an arvo off from sorting, mixing, shovelling, laying and pointing got things sorted. Unfortunately, we had to miss out on collecting heaps more trailer loads of big rocks. Steve's back was getting niggly and my sciatica was becoming near unbearable. Anyway, two old sooks moaned and groaned until we got to the back door. Still needs a little bit of fill work behind the face rocks but that can come later.

Back in Melbourne, Ma sold the house OK and we cracked a bubbly to celebrate.
I then booked into the doctors and went for another massage.
