Are we there yet?

Nope, but we're very, very close!  (PS: The title wasn't a complaint!)

Our walk through is scheduled for Tuesday, 30 April and then handover on 8 May.  Ho.ly.cow!  This build has gone so well and so quickly.  We couldn't be more pleased!

May is going to be one crazy month, but again, no complaints from me.  Here are some photos of nearly completed spaces...

Front door.  The shadow doesn't really do it justice.
Alfresco ceiling fan - LOVE!
Ensuite shower

Ensuite vanity


Wardrobe doors.  I just love the glossiness of them!!
So, that's where we're at!  We have one small problem, though - the exterior of the house has been painted the wrong colour!!!  The spec says one colour (the correct colour) and then the painter asked Husband to sign another form stating that he was happy with the colour that had actually been painted (in a very small section).  Of course, he signed the form, as I had sort of fobbed my way through the conversation with him, thinking it was only the undercoat.  Bad wife!  So, we'll follow that up and see what happens...

I hope you've had a great weekend!


  1. How exciting for you....it looks fantastic! I love the 'mosaic' look tiles. Are they the same or similar to ones Katrina & Amie used in their house on last years "The Block"? Would you mind sharing the tile name? I bet the next few weeks will fly past in a blur!

    1. Nice pick up, KL, they are indeed the same (just a different colour). They give off just the right amount of sparkle - LOVE THEM! They are Jewels Platina from National Tiles. The weeks are already blurry, God help me for the next few!!! M x

  2. WOW! Dosen't time fly! Although at times I bet it felt like it was standing still too! lol
    Everything is looking amazing! Can not wait to see the styled photos after moving day, maybe a few days after to give you a bit of time! haha
    Have a great day.

  3. Wow is it already time to move in! It feels like yesterday that they started. Gonna have to look back in your blog to check when it was.
    I have finally been to Spotlight and I bought some fabric, they just off loaded it from the trailer so it's absolutely new. I'm making curtains for kitchen window and also lots of cushions for my sofa in the same room.
    Have a good week. Here in Victoria east of Melbourne the rain just started to bucket down and the wind came from nowhere. Going to try to pick up at school now!

    1. We started on 20 January, so it will be 109 days from then to handover - CRAZY! Glad to hear you made it to Spotlight. I can't wait to see your creations! Doesn't the nutso weather always come in around 3pm, so annoying!!! m xx
