One week to go!!!!!

Its all coming together now with one more week till we move back home (big Yay)
We had a leak in the roof during the week unfortunately which has caused the paint to peel in the kitchen :(
And the benchtop installer let me down by not arriving as planned today, I was so looking forward to seeing my kitchen almost finished. You'll notice we've had the cabinets repainted from the delightful apricot colour to white and new handles will be going on over the weekend.
the floor is looking sooooo nice.... the little inspector has had lots of fun running around on them already..
The little inspectors bathroom (the cabinet is to be moved to the left a bit)
Our ensuite (similar to the above except for the double handbasin)
And our wardrobe (walk in of course) Our wonderful builder scored some meltica super cheap so made up some organisers - the man of the house still thinks they are a waste of time though as everything gets filed "On the floor" *rolleyes*

Floors are looking awesome

Our floors are looking great.. but have caused a little stress.

We booked the vinyl layer to lay the vinyl downstairs in the bathrooms/laundry yesterday, he turned up and walked off the job immediately because he refused to work with the smell. Of course this didnt work for us as we have the plumber turning up on monday to fit our bathroom fixtures. So I fired him and hired the same company that is laying our carpet. They were great, appointed their vinyl layer at short notice and barely any difference in price.

Start of the floor sanding

The next exciting part of our rennovation, getting the floors sanded.

To this.....
(they have only had one sand so far and the edges havent been done yet)

To this..... nice :)

The count down is on!!!!!!

We did it! All the main painting has been completed inside. There is still a bit of finishing to do around windows/doors and the stairs but its not going to be so labour intensive as the past two weeks have been. My poor husband worked 13 days out of the last 14 making this happen!

Down the stairs.. carpet is being laid in two weeks time.
At the bottom of the stairs (check out the storage - yay)
Down the hall from the master bedroom.

Master bedroom
Spare room
Logan's room
The floors are being sanded now, the vinyl is being laid at the end of this week, plumber & electrician in next week and then final touch ups of paint then we are all good to go moving back in on the 9th of August.

We will have been out of our house for one week shy of 6 months.

Entry way

Kitchen has been painted

And I think it looks great!!! I love the colour - it looks blue in these pics but its actually a light grey with a slight blue tinge to it. The cabinets need to be resurfaced but it all depends on cost as to when this will be done.

And the painting continues

The whole top half has almost been finished, with just two coats left to do on the kitchen and the doors and windows to be finished. It is looking soooo good and we cant wait to get the floors sanded upstairs the week after next.
