Courtney's House Reborn

After close to 10 yrs in our little home we decided it was time for a bigger one.

We looked at moving on. Other established homes needed too much work and new home suburbs were too far away from everything and the houses built too close together.

We liked this area, the school and had made a good circle of friends over that time.

So we took the best of both worlds.

A new home in an old area.

Week 20

Here we are only 5 days until particle completion (builders talk for nearly finished).
Out of those 5 days is a 2 day weekend....will Aveling be able to do it!!!!!! We will see.

The garage door has been put in. Oops No windows. Needs fixing.

DH and popped into the house the other when some tilers where there. Being locked out Sucks!!! When we looked in the ensuite we saw that the vertical feature tiled the wrong. Yes it was a vertical feature, but the tiles should be horizontal in the feature to match the tiles above the vanity. Needs fixing.
Vertical - Wrong

Vanity looking good horizontal.

Horizontal - Tick fixed.

Lets move into the kitchen. There is a lot to do here. We need appliances, plumber and electrician.
The tiling looks good, this is the tiling we didn't pay for apparently (just look at variation No.57)!!!!!

Mum can you see what I mean about it looking washed out.

You can't see it but the white tiles are 300x100mm. Nice look.

Lets move into the kids bathroom tiling.....
Good tiling

Crap tiling
Do you think they could make up there mines. In line with the hob or one full tile, not in between both. Needs fixing.

Now lets look at some fun stuff. Loads of cupboard space, it goes around the corner to the right.

And some colours for the front rooms, carpet and strip lino for the main areas (including the craft room).
The theater room and our bedroom will have different colours.

DH and I think we have picked colours and type of blinds for the house but still haven't picked a company to make them. Quick sticks with that I think.
Going to Ikea tomorrow to deck out the craft room. Fun Fun
Will post soon.


  1. Yes Kitchen will look much better when there is some colour on the walls.

    Ah ha the tile does look out of place.Looks like they just had a bit left and stuck it there. I agree either up to tile or lower to match hob.
