Week in photos...

Well we are in!!!

Can't believe it but tonight will be our 6th night sleeping in our house and even though we are still living in shambles we love it.

Aside from moving everything in we have managed to pull up the last of the remaining lino in the dining room, set up some wardrobes, install a hot water system, make some temporary bench tops and unpack about 40% of the boxes - not too bad of an effort. Oh and biggest news of all huddy is sleeping in his big boy bed - amazing! Kids are so adaptable it's incredible...

Still on the immediate to do list:
1. Assemble ikea wardrobes
2. Re paint floors in bathroom (prev used jet dry satin finish but have decided it marks to easy so want to try a coat of gloss)
3. Finish last piece of decking on front deck so we can swing the batwing doors
4. Finish the painting on the front deck
5. Finish the roof in the dining room
6. Finish the painting inside
7. Build a back fence and side gates
8. Finish kitchen
9. Decide on and buy an oven

Not so immediate future to do list:
1. Driveway
2. Front stairs
3. Front fence
4. Back deck
5. En suite
6. Landscaping
7. Remove external cladding and paint exterior
8. Replace roof

Here's some pics of the house so far...
