Here are a few more pics after things have been done/organised.

Kitchen: The tiles have been done around the bench and splashback.
The pantry has been organsied and 'someone' went mad with the label machine
Bathroom.. a little decorating
Tiles around the bath - on the look out for something to put on the walls to make it look a bit more homely.
Dinning room to lounge

We made it!!!!!!!

We finally moved back in last weekend (I think it was one week shy of six months) It feels so good to be home.

For the most part we are unpacked.

The dinning room.

The kitchen.. I love my kitchen!
The pantry... awesome! The doors are going to be taken off in the coming weeks and sent to the finishers to be spray painted the same white as the kitchen cabinets. I need to get some sort of order to the pantry but at least it fits everything *wink*
Doors closed... Dad is installing bi-fold runners today.
The little inspectors first bath in the HUGE bathtub. He enjoyed himself!
The lounge... note the new addition to our family a nice 42" LCD that I won from ASB. It feels so much nicer than our old lounge, very cosy but not cramped. Funny as the way we've set it up its actually only 1/2 a metre wider than our old lounge yet it makes all the difference.
Master bedroom... wow I knew it was going to be big but its HUGE! The first night we didnt sleep very well as I dont think either of us were used to so much space around us.

The litte inspectors room... he was incredibly happy to have all his stuff around him again, I'd put away lots of toys that he was given for his last birthday but were still a bit old for him yet. Now they are perfect and he is having lots of fun playing with them.

Will update with some other pics when we get them sorted.. the main bathroom is having tiles put up today, the spare room gets its first guest this weekend so I will finish tidying that tonight.

I just wanted to come on and say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has helped make this dream come true. We have had tremendous support from our family and friends, without them we could not have even contemplated rennovating our house.

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts xxxxx

We are almost there... 5 more sleeps

The benchtop was installed today, I love it.. it will be so easy to keep clean. It is 95% quartz.

Carpet has also started to be installed. It will be finished tomorrow.
Our bedroom.. I hung the curtains in the weekend and am hoping given a few more weeks they will be come less stiff and sit properly.

The little inspector was super excited about the carpet in his room.... and the two curtains... and the three lights he has in his room. He was terribly cute - hes got a lot of energy at the best of times but we have never seen him quite so hyper before!!!
