Pool update

Sorry for not updating of late but to be honest there hasn't been alot to report.  Anyhow, just a few photos now the concreting has been done around the pool area.  It still needs to be coloured in a couple of weeks.

We are in .... finally

Thought I'd fill you in now that we are in.  It was pretty stressful leaving the rental and moving into our new house but finally ... we made it.  Its been about 3 weeks now and we are slowly getting there.  Ian has been working some shift work and I have a 3 week deadline to finish my course so we still have lots of unpacking to do.  Anyway here are a few photos:

Painting and tiling ...

Well, painting is nearly finished and the wet areas tiling is almost done.  We have the electrician booked in on Thursday for his final fit out.  We need to get him to change a couple of light switches which he has put in the wrong place.  He will also be putting in the fans and some of the lights we have brought.  I think the plumber will be in soon too.

Painting is looking good.  We have used Dulux white on white for the woodwork and Dulux Grand Piano for the walls.  So far we are very happy with the results.  Tiles in the wet  areas are looking great, just what we wanted so overall we are happy with our colour selections.

The painter has also been painting the render outside with Dulux Linseed half strength - full strength was a bit to dark for our liking.  Oh, and the water tank is now plumbed in too.


Ensuite - just finished grouting

Kitchen n' stuff

Ok another busy week at the new house.  Garage door is now, kitchen is now in and so are, laundry, ensuite and bathroom vanities.  Those rooms have also been tiled and grouted but I cannot get photos because the painter has covered them all ... yes that's right, the painters are in, woohoo!  Here are some pictures that I did manage to get before the painter covered it all. (Click on picture to make it bigger).

Thought I'd chuck this one in ... after the rain.
