The electrician is back

The painters finished painting last week. Must say it looks pretty good.

The kitchen benchtop was installed on Friday along with the bathroom benchtops and sinks. Shower screens were installed too. The wardrobes have been fitted with the shelves and rails too :)

Today the electrician has been back to install the light switches and power points.

Hopefully the bath, toilets and bathroom accessories are installed this week and maybe the tilers back to finish off the living area.

Will not be much left to do. Door handles, carpet, flyscreens, kitchen splashback... That should finish off the inside then.

Driveway was meant to be started last week but still nothing.

It is getting closer that is for sure and we can not wait to move!

The painters

The painters have started. Hard to see how much they have done, but looks like the first coat has been done.

The tiling

Laundry, bathroom and ensuite have been fully tiled. Bathroom vanities are in place and the laundry tub has been installed too. The front porch has also been tiled, which was a nice surprise as we weren't sure if it was being tiled as we were going to use merbau to build a front deck. Now we don't have to worry straight away as the front porch looks good being tiled. One less thing to worry about.

SS said painters will be in this week or next to start painting. Must be getting closer now.

The shopping begins

Today we went looking for a dining table and lounges and after an exhausting day we managed to find what we were looking for.

We ordered 2 lounges, 2 single seat accent chairs an ottoman, coffee table and dining table and chairs. We also found our bar stools.

Lounges we ordered from Plush and dining table and chairs and bar stools from Freedom. Staff from both stores were extremely helpful and friendly.

We also found fans for the alfresco and saw some lights for inside and lights for the front to put on the sides of the garage.

Dining table and chairs

Single seat chairs (different fabric)

Lounge for main lounge and children's activity (different fabric) Ottoman for children's activity

The kitchen

The kitchen cupboards and island have been installed. It was delivered yesterday and the cupboards had been put together and today they had all been put in their place :)

Ensuite cupboards have also been put together and are sitting in the bedroom. Not sure if the main bathroom has been done as we can not see in.

Kitchen looks great. Can't wait to see the glass splashback as we have not seen the colour of it yet and also can't wait to see the ceaser stone bench.

Hopefully the tiling will start once the kitchen is finished. Tiling was suppose to start yesterday but I guess with the kitchen coming late it delayed them. Another step closer.
