More house photos (8 sleeps to go)…

We’re in the thick of it now people! 8 more sleeps! It’s all happening. My husband has taken the day off work today to lay floorboards. I am loving them sick!


They are a floating timber floor in Spotted Gum.



The kitchen tiling has been grouted. I am so happy!!! All the tiles came from National Tile and the kitchen subway tile is quite big – 100mmx400mm. Now I can’t wait to see the island bench go in + the oven and kickers…


Laundry floor tiles are going down…


And the front façade is getting a little fancier 🙂

So, today, whilst my husband busts his gut, I will be getting pampered with a new hair colour. I have been trying to take it easy this week as next week I’ll be packing my little heart out. I am still feeling average, so I’ll relax until next week. But I will be delivering refreshments to my husband and the boys during the day 🙂

Have a great Friday everyone!

    So understand your excitement to having a complete reno. We are days away from moving into our home!

    So, so, so exciting! We are still about 4-5 weeks off…the tilers got a talking to this morning for dragging the chain! I saw my pantry this morning and got a surge of excitement! We’ve had a pretty emotional few weeks with a serious illness in the family so the house is kind of a welcome distraction. A bit of time out from the heavy stuff. Glad you’re feeling better. Read your post the other day but didn’t get a chance to comment. Save your energy for the packing/unpacking and the fun of decorating! You must be so excited!
