Default Wow how kiwi am I !!!!

Stupidly took on the job of converting one half of my double garage into a treatment therapy room for my wife
Am now at the painting stage (just put primer down) and am going to tile the entrance tomorrow and await the arrival of carpet. This is from someone who didn't know what Gib, Plaster, Sealant, Carpentry etc etc etc was a couple of years ago. Amazing what a couple of years in NZ can do.....

Have just joined expats tonight and read your posting hope the work in the treatment room is going OK. We live in Balclutha at the moment with our teenage daughters and have been talking of a move maybe to Nelson. How do you find it?

Drywall is as much a trade name as GIB, IIRC, its sheets of PLASTERBOARD!!!

Love NZ and in particular Nelson area. Lived in Welly for a year which was great but weather doesn't compare to Nelson. If your serious about Nelson then you should visit and soak up the atmosphere, any more spefic questions please ask away. Darren

The wife has had her own business over here for couple of years now, but we are hoping to set something up together soon. Just completed year long business course over here.
