OK here's the whole thing. I'm very happy that the forum now auto-resized large images - I had to manually resize every pic before, this should make things a lot easier!
Continuing the same view as last time... here is the progress since November to January!
Jan 18 (after very short Christmas break!)
Feb pics seem to be hiding from me :-/
And here's from a different angle, and a slightly longer timeframe - a view from inside - This is the corner of the L-shaped open plan kitchen/dining/living area, with a view of the rear deck (just to the left) and the internal deck (in the middle).

Quick update to say I have done a couple of blog posts about the house in the past week. If you are looking for newer pics than what is above you'll be disappointed but there is a bit more detailed info if you want to read :)

Wow.. it's been that long? Sorry for deserting you all :(
Yes, we moved in, in June 2012!
I unexpectedly had to travel overseas for two weeks in July, conveniently using up my annual leave that was going to be my "post move-in" time. Not long after that, my wife went back to work three nights a week, making me single parent to a 5, 3 and 1 year old (they are now 6, 4, and 2!)
Enough excuses - I promise I will get some updated pics for you all!
I may even stagger the posts so that you can "live" through the build in real time, sort of, rather than get several months worth at once!
Watch this space...
