Things are moving very quickly now....we are seriously busy!
Every weekend The Hubbster and I sit down with the The Money Pit diary, which is our workbook for what we have accomplished the previous week and what we need to do the following week.
Lots of progress now, including more VJ wall paneling going up, the bath and three shower bases have been checked in and more plumbing finished.
Here's my kitchen and pantry.
And our bath!
The carpenter built a frame in our hallway which will separate the front area of the house from the back, with some lovely fretwork. Even with the frame up, the long wide hallway looks different!
The Hubbster and I walked through the bathrooms deciding on where our toilet roll holders, towel rails, shower glass shelves etc will be so the carpenter can add noggins to adhere these to.
I even bought a new vacuum cleaner because today we are going to use an air compressor to blow out all of the wood shavings and sawdust from the gaps where the timber floor meets the VJ so the channels are clear.
The Hubbster has ordered our doors, including the cupboard doors, the walk in robe doors and the theatre room bifolds as well as all of our internal doors.
He has also ordered a window for the laundry which will overlook the garage, and give me a nice view of the driveway and the hills so I will have something nice to look at when I am folding clothes or doing the washing. Bless him for thinking of me....
We have also ordered our lourve highlights which will go over every door in the house..in the same design as the external ones to allow for great airflow through the house.
The tiler came out for a visit and we discussed what tiles we are having...we have some samples coming and I can't wait to share our ideas with you. I can assure you, they will be traditional and beautiful while keeping with the Queenslander style.
I spoke to the waterproofer who only needs one weeks notice, and he will come and waterproof our bathrooms and laundry before the tiling is done.
This week we have alot to do! We need to decide on our fretwork for the areas that won't have doors or lourves and we need to think about our water tanks and get them ordered. The plumber is finished his first stage and will be back to do our drainage and dig some trenches and put our tanks in....
We also have to think about skylights that will be going in two of the bathrooms, and a painter and I really need to stop there because it all seems too much. But we are doing it, and it is exciting and challenging...
I said to The Hubbster today, how amazed I am that we are both thinking the same and have the same ideas on what we want. He said "it's all about compromise".
He's so smart. That's why I love him ♥
