Lots of progress

The cabinetry is all done now and it looks fantastic. I can't work out how to take pics of the bigger cabinets so there are just some pictures of bits of the cupboards!

The granite guy has done his final measurement, the carpet, showerscreens and mirrors are booked. The floor guy starts polishing on the 6th october. We are on track to move in at the end of October. We just need to decide on our splashback which goes in 1 week after the granite benchtop.

More pics

Here is one week's work. Things are really progressing now. We have narrowed down the carpet selections, the sparky has started putting in the powerpoints and the cabinet handles should go on over the weekend. The walk in robe hasn't gone in yet but the materials have been ordered. The design I drew didn't fit in the room (never was a mathematician) so the cabinet maker had to re-design it all. Will be good to see how it works out.

View of the kitchen from the stacker slider doors. they have been painting the doors so they are all spread out drying. We also had a couple of people come and measure up for the granite benchtops today.

The facade with the garage door down. The wooden posts and fascia on the verandah still need to be painted.

Some colours!

The painters are more than 1/2 way through. We love the wall colour (wattyl Ermine White) that flows through the house. not 100% sure about the bedroom feature (browny colour), but love the dining room feature (red). They have done a great job so far and have been really accommodating of our (read my) changes of mind by painting just a little bit of the cornice, waiting for us to see it and then doing the rest or changing it. The electrician has started to put the powerpoints in and the cabinet maker has put the benchtops in the bathrooms. We have bought pretty much all the lights and have narrowed down the carpets. The belly keeps growing but we should be well and truly in by then!

The greyish - browny colour in the master bedroom ; also continued through cornice

the double vanity in the ensuite is finished. basins, taps and light to go in soon!

Getting Painted!

The tiles are finished, the paint has started. The carpet still needs to be chosen and booked (woops, our fault!) and we have finally decided not to go for a laminate kitchen benchtop so have to organise some quotes for granite and then buy baked beans for dinner for the next 5 years! in other news, the baby belly is growing which is very exciting. Some pics for the die hards!
