Cooking with Gas!
Introducing my new Glem oven. I"m totally in love with it.
I just polished it before we popped it into the space!
The cooktop is gas, and the oven is Bi Energy, meaning I can choose electric or gas! I don't think I've even owned anything as nice as this!
It's so exciting at the moment. We are on the final countdown. Actually this Saturday is the official 4 year anniversary....of the first night we slept in the shed! Can you believe it? Four long years of owner building, of having most of our things in storage, and feeling very unorganised and unsettled.
We have the final council inspection next Wednesday, then we can move in! We are already showering in the new house, and it will take a few weeks to transfer everything from storage.
But that's the fun part! I actually forget what I have packed away in our big plastic boxes! I may even find my slow cooker, which has been missing for all this time!
Alot of people ask why it's taken four years. Time, money, kids, family, farm, sport, work, health...the list goes on. This is our dream house, our country home that The Hubbster and I have always wanted.
Where we plan to bring up our children, and welcome our grandchildren. I never want to move.
So we have taken our time (obviously) to build exactly what we want. A classic but modern Queenslander, 550sqm under roof, wrap around verandahs, polished floors with timber from our property....
After four years of all of us sleeping in the same room, I can't wait for the kids to have their own rooms and their own space.
And my very own child free craft room.......insert happy dancing here!
