Our House... The Finished Product!

Finally!  I have some photos of our finished house to share!  Well, parts of it!  We haven't finished setting up all the rooms, but I thought I'd show you what we have done so far.  :-)

I apologise in advance... this is a WHOPPER of a post!

The main living area.  It's an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen that opens out onto our deck...

The door leads to the bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry.  Master bedroom to the left, the rest to the right.

That's the front entrance on the right.

The door closest to the left of the screen is to the garage, with a cat flap so our cat Bronte can do "his business" in private!  The next door leads to the downstairs... no photos of that yet!

Speaking of Bronte, he approves of our new lounge...

I love our pull-out extendable tap fitting...

It might be sad, but I also love our pull out bin!  Makes preparation a breeze.  :-)

And I love that out pull-out range hood "disappears" into the cupboards... all thanks to a vinyl cover strip.

Master bedroom.  The doors either side of the bed are to our walk-in robe.  We upgraded to a king size bed... and now we need a new quilt!!

Master ensuite.

I won the battle for a recessed shelf...  :-)

And a separate toilet!

Olivia's bedroom.

Main bathroom.  Or as Olivia likes to call it... Olivia's bathroom...

Aren't these bird adorable?  Forgive the lighting, they're actually a creamy colour.  The gorgeous Amanda Reddicliffe sent them for my birthday.  :-)

And the star of the bathroom show...

That's the end of today's tour!  Stay tuned for more updates... I'll be sharing my craft space soon!  :-)
