The Money Pit is Finished!



Oh my.  It's actually hard to believe.  After four long years it is official!

The Money Pit is finished!  I can hardly believe it.  It hasn't really sunk in.

There is still some little final touches to be done like replacing the white electrical covers with brushed chrome ones, and adding doorstops and bathroom mirrors.  And of course establishing some gardens.

I think there will be a big transitional period where we are living in both the shed and the new house.

Today The Hubbster and I cleaned the kitchen, vacumning the builders dust from the cupboards and wiping over the benchtops. We can now start unpacking and transferring all of our kitchen bits and pieces to the new house.

On Saturday we'll move our dining table and chairs and we can start cooking and eating in our brand new kitchen!  I said today that it hardly seems real - is this all really ours? 

After living in a dusty shed for so long, with most of our things in storage, it's just so lovely to have something brand new - all shiny and untouched and beautiful.  I want to unpack and decorate everything now!!!!

I really can't even remember what we have......all lovingly wrapped and packed away in big clear plastic boxes four years ago.  It's just crazy!
