Updates finally...

We have had some more progress since the last post....


Stairs are in and under coated...
Will eventually paint it like this... Once balustrade is installed
We also have installed the lattice batwing doors... So happy with the shadows they cast and find myself just staring at them multiple times a day

Jeff has been busy doing little bits here and there... He put up the ship bell that Hudson chose:
Villa maison nautical lights for the kitchen that I bought of a-m about a year ago...
Finishing of the dining room roof (thanks to trav) 
And finally undercoating those doors in the kitchen... Whose idea was it to get 8 pane doors??? 
In other news we also managed to choose a fridge and freezer combination... 
When we properly install them and use the fisher paykel joining kit it should look something like this 
I know this is kinda crazy to have two fridge freezers in your kitchen, but we had the room and I got a really great deal on the fridge freezers so the whole thing came in under $2400 which for 1050 litres of fridge freezer with water and ice is unheard of. The guy at the store couldn't believe it was going in a "brisbane home" his words "I just didn't think people in brisbane had fridge freezers this big" I said u haven't met my family! I think my mum has 5 fridge freezers at her place, closet hoarders ;-) 

Anyhow if anyone is after a fridge freezer I got the one with ice and water from masters - their RRP is $2400 but everyone sells them for around $1800.  Masters reduced them to $1150 the weekend before last as they new model came out (version 4 I think) so they were clearing out the 3's so I managed to get the floor stock one for $1000... Mum got one too. I got the left hand one and joining kit from Queensland appliances for $1350, they are quite helpful and just at Bowen hills so local. 

Finally as deck is done we are looking for deck roof inspiration everywhere we go, here's my latest obsession the roof at the st barts store on James st:


I will take it all, chandelier and amazing dining chairs included please :-)

  2. Now that fridge/freezer is the perfect size for our family. If we had more room, I would have bought something similar. I have bought the F&P French Door. I wish manufacturers would start making fridges with less depth. Like pantries, I find things get lost at the back. My pantry is going to be 350mm deep, but wider than a standard size so I can actually find what I am looking for. xx

    1. totally agree about the pantry - we were going to do a walk in pantry had shelving only deep enough for 1 can so i can see everything... and definitely agree about the fridge/freezers being too deep... that's what sold me on this set up initially... we had the width to play with not the depth.

  3. Oh I have fridge envy. That's a great deal on the fridge. I'm also loving your new house facade. It's certainly come along way from when you first started. xx

    1. Thanks Anita :-) i often look at your house with such envy, can't wait to the stage you are at and can sit back and enjoy the home instead of seeing more work everywhere we look!!!

  4. Wow that is some serious fridge action, and I love a good bargain! We have the FP double door fridge and my kids are going nuts with the water and ice, best purchase ever! So much glorious progress at your place, loving the stairs and your headlights ( which I'm sure I have swooned over before) and is that the biggest front door mat EVER? Very cool! Looking forward to seeing your finished kitchen but these snippets are fantastic. I too have been painting windows, mine are thankfully big single light sliders, I would be cursing the eight lights if I had them! mel x

  5. Your front is beautiful! I would love to add batwing doors to our verandah! Total fridge envy (although the two of us probably don't need it yet!) x
