I thought the build was emotional, but actually moving into this place we have created is so amazing - almost surreal. We took the keys a week ago on Thursday and spend the next two days gently moving smaller items, painting a couple of feature walls and really just roaming from room to room pinching ourselves.
The actual move day was Saturday (last week) and man was that a day and a half. But by the time we used our double shower for the first time, we had set up all of the bedrooms and unpacked the kitchen. The rest could wait.
Waking up in our new house was like being on holiday in a ritzy resort...until we got to the rooms that had boxes piled to the ceilings. Arrrggghhhhh.
But now, 10 days later we reckon we've done pretty well, and most importantly, the fur kids have settled in which is a massive relief.
Anyway - here's a few piccies;
|Jasper feature wall in one of the bedrooms|
|Feature wall in Dulux "Plantain"|
|The troublesome fireplace waiting for some paint!|
|Dining room through corner stackers to alfresco|
|Kitchen splashback window at night|
|The whole kitchen|
|Miss Bella staring through the window!|
Landscaping is well underway and we're hoping to have our exposed aggregate driveway and paths poured later this week.
But the best bit is walking the fur kids around the estate and stopping to chat with neighbours, or having little pop in visits from fellow avenuers. I love love love living here already :)
