House Update House Update House Update.
Things are really moving forward now. And we just might have an ETA of Christmas!
Christmas lunch on the deck! How delightful!
So what's been happening. As The Hubbster is a sparkie, he has wired up our house. The lights, fans, powerpoints, night lights and all the rest have been cabled in.
The best news of all is we have ourselves a plumber! We are so excited because we wanted someone who understands our passion for what we are trying to achieve. And that is, a beautiful modern Queensland while keeping with the traditional facets of what a Queenslander style of home is.
Things like VJ wall panelling, chair and picture rails, polished floors, fanlights and breezeways, high ceilings, lourve windows with wonderful air flow and big wrap around verandahs.
Our plumber knows what we want, to work with copper fittings etc and the little touches and features that we love.
He will be fitting out our 3 bathrooms, our septic and drainage and downpipes, our hot water system and our gas, and connecting everything to where it should be.
We have decided to bite the bullet and get it all done, rather than work on one bathroom and leave the rest until later.
We want the same person doing it all. I feel really confident that we have a chance of moving in this year.
We are also just about to start sheeting out the interior and lining the verandah soffits, so we can do this alongside the plumber doing his thing. So no time is wasted.
I'm totally over living in this shed. I miss my things, I miss my slow cooker that I can't find, and I miss feeling "organised". I like things to have a place and at the moment, this is not to be.
I want to bake in my country kitchen.
I want to decorate with my vintage pieces, my cushions and quilts and books and photoframes.
We have so much packed away and are living very simply and cramped and I want to decorate my house and have some space.
Ahh space. I can almost taste it.
