sorry haven't posted for a while, busy researching appliances, flooring, driveway etc. sorry about the quality of some pics as they were taken at night.

Cedar lining boards: not quite finished, need more wood

ensuite: not tiled as window needs to be moved so its centered, loving the undermount sinks and stone benchtops.

family bathroom: just need a toilet


lovely downlights

bought these lights and then saw them in the magazine i bought on the way home, good to know they'll go with the dark splashback

splashback in dulux caveman

garage door: surfmist

things i love

Hans wagner replica wishbone chairs

sean dix table from matt blatt

btc original lights, i can dream of these!

Nick Scali sofa, originally i wanted a light grey sofa but this was the only comfy sofa we found. i had my heart set on a jasper (king furniture) but it was sooo uncomfortable. 

bought this in NZ for bojarkus

skygarden light: maybe in our room

Kozyndan: bojarkus' fav

i love hallways with lots of pics!

Vertical succulent garden. i think it would look amazing against the hebel and it would be seen from the front door!

love the colours

our render colours will be grey pebble and stepney, i think the orange of the planter would look amazing

week 11 (25/06/12 - 01/07/12)

So last week the hebel was finished and the kitchen was put in this week. i received a fixing payment on friday from CG which i wasn't too impressed with. i know that the fix wasn't complete on friday, as bojarkus is the carpenter and he was finishing the fix on saturday. i know, i know one day in advance, so what! . i just think its a bit cheeky.
note to builders: if your going to ask for payments early, make sure the fix carpenter isn't the client!!!!!!

on the plus side the build is going pretty well, and quite quick, a few defects so far which the SS promises will be sought out at QA.

hebel finished: looks beautiful

mahoosive laundry

family bathroom

Kitchen: laminex moleskin top cupboards and laminex baye bottom cupboards

dirty great big hole under sink, pipes are too far forward

view to alfresco

floor plan, needs to be flipped though
ive taken these off the carter grange website, hope thats ok  Carter Grange | Carter Grange

saltwater coast: soon to be our home

the view from near the lifestyle centre, i think it looks like a pop up book of melbourne

the reserve

the king of his castle: this park is two doors down, i apologise now to the parents on our street, he's not a wierdo, just my husband. 

BBQ area at the park

a place to sit, eat and watch grown men fall down the slide.....

lifestyle centre: the lap pool, semi enclosed, heated thank god

kids splash pool

the lifestyle centre

the wetlands/ bird sanctuary down the road
