Internal painting looking AMAZING, front yard retaining underway and it’s coming together beautifully!

And the frills continue…but sadly no sign of cabinetry

Over the last fortnight most of the decorative internal elements have been completed, but the big hold up on our project at the moment is cabinetry. We’ve organised the cabinetry ourselves, separate to our building contract, and while I have no doubt it’ll be amazing once it’s in, we’re playing a bit of a waiting game – and I hate waiting!

Hello 2017…the year of the reno completion!

After a break that was shorter than we anticipated, the guys were back on site in full force last Monday. Before Christmas they managed to get all the blackbutt flooring laid throughout. This week has been all about architraves and skirting, archways and breezeways, and starting to sort out the internal stairwell.
