All painted

Things are really rolling along now since the last update. All the painting inside and out side of the house is now totally complete, and we are very happy with the colours we chose more than a year ago. The front door and timber work to the entry of the house have been done and looks good, even though it seems to be darker than we expected.

Our bench tops have gone in. They are currently covered over for protection, but what we have been able to see of them looks fantastic, particularly in the Laundry. All the wardrobes and electrical fit out is complete. The plumber is meant to be on site today to install all the tap wear, toilets and bathtub etc. On last glance, on one of many drive bys, the Air con had also arrived and been connected and installed. All in all there is not a lot now to complete before the big day, apart from some mirrors, door handles, sealing to the wet areas and a good clean throughout.

On another note we have been busy sourcing floor coverings and have decided on our carpet and spotted gum timber flooring. Lighting is the next little thing to finalise as well as the window coverings to the front rooms of the house, if we have any $$$ left. Quotes for the fencing are in the making and we are gearing up for some earthworks around the house as soon as we get hold of the keys. There's a lot happening behind the scene's at the moment in readiness for action stations in hopefully two or three weeks when it is FINALLY OURS!!


  1. Looks fantastic! I'm worried too we won't have any money left to afford the plantation shutters we originally wanted
    Dee :)

  2. Not long to go now!! I actually quite like the dark timber it is a bit of a feature. It is amazing how quickly the $'s seem to go, and we're not even anywhere near the end yet!

  3. Thanks guys! Yes not long to go now, it is looking like we will get the keys first week in April if all goes to plan. Mel, the $ certainly are mounting up :)
