We will, we will ROCK YOU

April 17, 2011

Gyprock that is!  It's really starting to look like a house now.  Apologies for the pic overload, but I'm in lurve!

Master sliding doors with a glimpse of the spa.  Look at all that yummy sunlight streaming in!

Master with floating feature wall.  We didn't expect the niche to be open (its a solid back in the display), but the mirrored doors behind will reflect the light, so I think we'll leave it as it is :)

Ensuite; loo on the left, shower with ceiling dumper & double taps.  There's a niche too on the back of the loo wall & a rail shower head on the far wall.

The theatre, which sits almost opposite the master.  Cavity for sliding doors is all plastered up - loving the bulkheads & the feature window, although it opens funny.  There's 3 panes, the centre one is fixed and both sides slide to the middle so it doesn't open all that wide for a big window.

Bella doesn't give a damn about the windows - she's LOVING her new house, especially all the mud outside!

This is my fav part of the house.  Fireplace projection on the left and kitchen splashback window on the right.  You can just see our corner stacker doors resting in the kitchen too.  Once they go in, we'll be locked out :(

Better view of the stacker doors and kitchen bulkheads. Fridge & pantry sit under the right hand bulkhead and the overhead cupboards with frosted lift up doors sit under the long bulkhead on the window wall.

From the alfresco to fireplace wall.  Family room on the right and Loz's library will run along the wall where the cornice is all stacked up.

The laundry; overhead cupboards right to the wall, 2 banks of underbench cupboards & the bench will continue to the wall as well.  A half-glazed door will add some light.  Hope it's not too dark in there with chocolate tiles on the floor and wenge cabinetry??!!  I think the benchtop is white though, with white splashback tiles.

Looking down the hallway towards the front door. Small niche on the right & alcove type thingy reserved for pointless branches on the left.

AND...we've had some bricking begin.  But I'll leave that post for another day!

Woot!

How exciting :) Looks fantastic - I cannot wait to see the finished product!

Your laundry is very similar to mine in both layout and colours!!

Where to next??

Tash said...

We went down to the Avenue today just to check up on our pegs and what not and we did a bit of a measure of our land to make sure they were all in the right spot!! Then went and had a lil sneaky look at your beautiful HUGE house, we must have just missed you, it is looking amazing and Tristan has fell in love with your fire place wall its gorgeous!! I reckon you should be all brick this week, cant beleive how quick your house is being done!!

Tonia said...

I cannot believe how quickly everything has gone up Reinsey! They move very quickly in Melbourne - JEALOUS!!!!

Tash - at this rate your house will be ready in 4 weeks lol

Reinsey said...

I can't wait either Shayne!!
I guess bricking will go full steam ahead this week, then cabinetry & fix?
If my laundry looks half as good as yours I'll be a very happy girl :)

Reinsey said...

Yay Tash - I love sharing our house with you all. Our SS thinks we'll be done by the end of June. Yikes - that's just 9 weeks away!!!!!

Reinsey said...

Tonia - the race is back on baby. We're catching you.............

Tonia said...

We will probably be in by Christmas LOL

Tonia said...

But now that i'm thinking about it..we did have the 4 week christmas break..so really if it wasnt for that break we would have been near completion right now..haha :P

Reinsey said...

Yours would HAVE to take longer though. You've got so many lovely features which, although they'll slow you up now, will be totally worth waiting for :)

Janine Kimberley said...

Ha Ha told you it was great - and huge!!! Lots of room for Loz's books on that wall. Can't wait to see the brickwork when its done - perhaps by easter!!

Sandrine said...

Wow wow. A fireplace wall. What a bloody great design. And corner stacking doors..wow wow.
Love :)

Adam said...

Looking good. Won't you be given a key once you get to lockup? I'm pretty sure we are given one at that stage.

Debra said...

Absolutely gorgeous Reinsey, LOVE it all....worth the long wait. Fantastic fireplace, kitchen and alfresco area WOW.

I haven't had the pleasure of a walk thru yet; but I did spy bricks down the garage side.

Carlisle certainly move once on site don't they?

CuPPyCake said...

Reinsey, your built is absolutely stunning.. I love your fireplace design :)

AlexandH said...

Hey Reinsey, that looks superb!! Some very nice features thru the place, well done.

Looks like you gusy are still on the same timeline as us and I have to say I'm totally envious of the corner stackers :) :) :)

Reinsey said...

Adam, no...we don't get keys down here in Melbourne. You're lucky as if you can still get in after that stage. Jealous!!!

Reinsey said...

Sandrine, I'll swap ya. My fireplace wall for your yummy ensuite shower wall??

Reinsey said...

Hey there Deb - how's the house coming along? We were going to call in but want to give you some time to settle in before being invaded. It was bad enough me knocking on your door on day one after hand over!!

Reinsey said...

AlexandH, who's gunna win the race???

Now that our stackers are there we're kind of kicking ourselves that we didn't go with the corner bi-folds. But you can't have everything, right???

Reinsey said...

CuPPyCake, how are all of those colour selections coming along? It's the funnest (is that a word) time. I would love, love to work at Spectra!!!

Debra said...

All good Reinsey, reasonably settled....so much to do! Still back and forth to Luke's with garage boxes.

Driveway poured today - thrilled with result.

Your house looks amazing, please drop in.

Janine Kimberley said...

I reckon we visit Deb over Easter and I'll make scones, what do you reckon?

Reinsey said...

Yum mmm.... Count me in ;)

Debra said...

Sounds good....most of Friday at Luke's and possibly helping Jarrad move in some of Saturday. Aren't we wonderful parents - where were they!!!!

Still to paint Theatre Wall, cabinet ready we're not. New Plasma must be on wall for Antenna/tuning installation following week... I've demanded working for Royal Wedding.

PS - Jam and Cream please.

Awesome pics, love it :-)

Janine Kimberley said...

What about Monday afternoon? David is Essendon supporter, will John be watching the match David wants to know?

Sounds like a plan Deb & Reinsey what time should we come Deb?

Debra said...

OK - clearly I am the only one who doesn't know Essendon are playing on Monday. John will be front and centre at the game. I shall be home. Come visit.

Janine Kimberley said...

Would Tuesday be better? That way we can all see everyone!
