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.

Well long time No blog.
Alot has happen in the house since my last blog.
The house is now in the Courtney Families! YES.
Work has been moving full steam ahead, Thanks to my helpers (Dad,Mum,SAR,Shags & DH)most of the house is now painted. One more room to finish before the carpet man comes on Monday.

This week the Strip Lino is being layed. That sound simple enough, right....No. The slab was no where near level, the difference between the highs and lows added another whole day to the guys job. Three times more materials used to create the new floor level which the guys could work on. Now my pocket is a little lighter and the guys are two days behind.
I looooove this photo, Squid1 in action. New floor.

Good place to start.Colour looks good.
In the family room corner, craft room side.

Will take some more photos tomorrow should be finished!!!!!
