Getting there!

Another little progress update on the house and there's plenty to talk about! It has been like Pitt Street around here every morning with carpenters, electricians, plumbers, tilers, and assorted other tradies turning up every morning.

Lots of progress on the kitchen
There has been lots more done on the kitchen. The splash back has been tiled with white bevel edge subway tiles and a grey grout to match the benchtops, which are Caesarstone in 'Urban'. The remainder of the lights have been put in, the dishwasher is just about plumbed in and the oven has been installed.

Yay oven!
I am most excited about the oven. I really can't wait until the kitchen is done for real and I can use this baby! It is a Glem Dual Fuel gas/electric oven with gas burners. We bought it on sale a few months ago and got the rangehood and a teppanyaki grill thrown in for free. I already have a list of things that I want to cook once we have a real working oven and cooktop.


Bedroom with floorboards and light fixtures
The spotted gum floorboards have been installed in the master bedroom and they look fantastic. They are being polished today, we have selected a matt finish to keep the natural look of the timber. Our builder keeps on referring to it as 'rustic', but I'm not a fan of that term, it sounds hokey and old-fashioned to me. The light fittings are in but we don't have the globes yet, it will look awesome once they are in.

The downstairs 'WC'
The toilet and vanity have been installed downstairs. Michael was so excited about it that he rang me at work to tell me it had been done! Unfortunately the toilets we had originally decided on were unavailable and so we had to spend twice as much money getting ones that would fit the specs. Oh well, I think it looks great! The vanity, sink, and tap are all from Ikea.

Ensuite sink with water and everything

Ensuite loo
The ensuite is looking great, the toilet and the big double bowl sink have been installed, and the tiling is all done. The wall tiles came up even better than I could have imagined, the offset pattern and the dark grout are really funky; different enough to be awesome but neutral enough to go with just about anything.

So we are getting there! It's really cool to see it all finally coming together and choosing all the little bits and pieces to polish it off. I can't wait until the stairs are in and we don't have to climb a ladder any more!

  6. I love the tiles you used in the kitchen, can I ask where you go them from? I am thinking of using something similar in my reno. (undecided on bevel though) I LOVE your floor boards too! I have a spotted gum dining table and I just love it.

  8. I am pretty sure that this project would turn out great. I just love the wooden floor. It looks great and classy. Furniture will surely complement well with the color of the floor. By the way, I love the simplicity of that sink. I hope to see some of your exterior design ideas too.
