Weekend Progress...

A bit late this week with this post - life has been crazy to say the least at the moment!  Here's what we have been up to...

Dad and Jeff finished of the huge hole in the living/dining room

close up pre architrave going on...
Boys also have been working on "arc-ing" the front door that was hacked to pieces from previous, lucky it was salvageable!
picked up some free timber stairs in very good condition from one of our neighbors mates...

...might get that butterfly staircase sooner than we thought :-)
went to ikea and here there and everywhere searching for these screws - so annoying can't get them anywhere so might have to have them made :-/
finally finished painting the front deck

and the front balustrade got installed...

we went with a "round dowel cricket pitch" look

Jeff and Dad also built the wall for the playroom
and we managed to get this huge bookcase in - was very tricky - removing windows etc i will spare you the gory details!
...and finally set up ours and huddy's bed!
Looks like we are all ready to move in this weekend - fingers crossed!!!


  1. So Hudson scored the IKEA rug? Best of luck with the move. xx

    1. Yes Huddy has it for now... we will see how long that lasts ;-)

  2. Wonderful that you are moving in already. It is all looking fantastic, cannot wait to see the kitchen. What colour are you painting the exterior? mel x

    1. The exterior and interior white is the same colour - Bassinet. The blue/grey you see in the bathroom and our bedroom is Cliff Face I love this colour as it lends itself to both Blue and Grey... I can't wait to see your kitchen Mel x

  3. Great blog! Just discovered your blog through a random google search which lead me to "walk among the homes" blog.... Loving reading all your posts as we are planning a reno too with our two dogs and 11 month old and I am dreading how it is going to go with inquisitive crawling toddler around! Seems like your little guy is handling all your reno going-ons really well! Can i ask, did you use an architect to decide on your plans or did you and hubby come up with it? Any recommendations?
