On a Roll

Well folks it has been another great week on site with plenty of progress to report. Doors are all hung, skirting is done, cornices on, cabinets nearly done and front pier has been hebeled. Very happy with how things are looking! Feature timber doors on the pantry and master bedroom look great. The bi-folds that were put on to open the wrong way have been fixed. Here are a few pics. Again my apologies, I thought I'd put my camera in the car but - no that wasn't the case, therefore dodgy iphone quality again.

Here are the pantry timber doors

Just a glimpse of the many metres of cornice and trim

Look - a closed bedroom door!

Ta kitchen (still being installed as you can see - by a really nice local guy)
The cupboards and drawers on the back are white poly.
 Island bench cupboards - in asian night. Love the size of the drawers and I spied my bin drawer. Island bench will look excellent once stone top is on!

Feature doors to master bedroom

Front door from the inside

I heart my laundry cupboards. If you remember I changed these after construction started and to say I am happy with it is an understatement! Picture does not do them justice due to the light coming in.

The gap under the bench is for storing my laundry hamper

My ensuite cabinets. We extended these to be wall to wall. Little display shelves in middle for storing towels

Kids bathroom vanity. Small and neat.

The pier at the front has now had hebel applied to it.

Cabinet guy says he will be back to finish on Monday. Waterproofing will also be inspected Monday. I think tiling is scheduled to start Tuesday and not sure what else to expect.

Wednesday my son has a specialist appointment so I will be off work. I have arranged to make the most of a mid-week day off and will be having an interior decorator meet me onsite to help select flooring - we are really struggling here - and discuss colours and furnishings etc. I am also fitting in an appointment to get a quote for blinds. Will let you know how these appointments go.
Here are two of the bamboo samples we are considering - in our turn around from having travertine...what do you think?

Yesterday we ordered our fridge, a new T.V for the rumpus and a dryer as our old one had kicked the bucket. The fridge is a gorgeous electrolux 690L side by side with cold water and ice dispenser:)

Hope all is well for my building buddies.



  1. Kylie, I like both color choices for the bamboo. I suppose you should check what suits the colors you have chosen so far. Nice fridge, I bought the french door fridge.

  2. I love the dark one :) In our old house we had bamboo very similar to the top one and its great too. I think they are both very versatile.

    Lots of progress - hope it continues for you!!

  3. Dark for sure!! Everything looks perfect :))

  4. Thanks girls...I'm really looking forward to getting some professional advise on Wednesday:)I like the dark but will wait to see what she recommends.
