House Update

It's time for another House Update.

The Money Pit is slowing moving forward, and slowly is the key word here.

My patience is sitting at a tolerable level at the moment.

We have handles galore! Cupboard door handles, bathroom vanity handles and of course......door handles!




The louvres above the internal doors have been fitted and they look really great!



Here's my cute little window in the laundry overlooking the garage (and the driveway)!


I am so in love with this door! It is the door from the mud room to the garage.

It needs to be painted of course!


There will be a small landing and stairs leading down to the garage.

The garage walls need to be done and that is the next big job!

I love this photo, the door looks quite bizarre without walls!


This week we will hopefully have the measurements done for the showerscreens.

We also have some light fittings arriving. THAT is exciting. I can't wait to see the first one installed!

It's looking lovely! And I have to say that you're a very patient woman to be living in a shed for 4 years!

River said...

I'm in love with your handles, they're gorgeous! Really classy looking.

LisaW said...

Your house is looking great Michelle! I can't wait to get the full tour once you've made it your home.

Jodie Thompson said...

That garage does look strange in the photo...is there going to be a step up to that door, or are you a really tall family?

Farmers Wifey said...

@ Brismod, I know how much you appreciate a similiar style house x I love reading about yours as well!

@ Debbie, well my patience is wearing thin.....not long to go!!

@ River, yes I like them as well. We are having a lot of brushed chrome in the house, in handles and light switches etc

@ Lisa, I'm going to have an online housewarming party and YOU are invited x

@ Jodie lolol I might just make the kids jump up there! Seriously there will be stairs leading to a small landing at the top!

I'm thinking you are in the fun stages now, with stuff that shows being installed, instead of just pipes or insulation. What fun...
