House Update

Lots happening at The Money Pit this week!

The plumbers have been here, doing our septic and stormwater.




Our water tanks arrive in two weeks which will keep the boys busy for a little while longer.

The bathroom tiles are being delivered this Friday, and the tiler starts in two weeks.

The plasterer also comes back in two weeks to fit our cornice and do his final fit out and check, before the painter starts.

Our awesome carpenter has finished fitting the doors, and has now started on the architraves, the chair rails and the skirting boards. Don't they look amazing!








We decided on a special feature for under the windows called a "nosing" which just looks beautiful!




Considering it's only 11 weeks until Christmas (egads) we are striving to be finished by then.

We have a good schedule going on, so we are just sticking to that and hoping our time (and our money) doesn't run out!

Please wish us luck. I need my house!

Luck - and lots of it.
But really, you don't need luck. You have drive, goals, work ethic and humour - negating the need for luck.
And nosing. You have beautiful nosing.
This makes that countdown to Christmas extra special (and extra stressful) for you guys.
I can't wait to see the 'money pit' become home.

It is so much fun to see the progress you are making. Since we have as peak now and then, the progress is so very visible. From your end it may not seem to be going along as quickly!
Everything looks beautiful! Good luck with your schedule. Yikes...Christmas is that close?!!

Hi, just started to read your blog, what fantastic detail inside the house. Anyway, I thought I would mention what helped me with my back problem- prolotherapy. I hurt my lower disc doing yoga over 25 years ago, then broke my tailbone in two spots about five years ago, then had stomach problems from anti-immflammitary tables. A good ostio helped and the injections of prolotherapy which strenghen the ligaments etc especially after having lots of kids. Look it up on the internet, I have only had minor problems since, even though the inital injections are pretty cruel-I'd go and by something afterwards, so have a nice cornishware collection happening. Good luck. Catherine
