I have lots to report!!
The big news is that the Stonemason started today!
I'm so excited about having a rock wall (post to follow this one)
I also made a decision about the Curtains today and they'll be ready in a few weeks!
We now have....
A 'Zeus' wall
I know, it's very dark!
This is taken from the (South side) neighbour's/client's house
(luckily they like it too)
We also have movable shutters for the BarBQ area (South side)
...and sliding doors!
I think they look good!
They'll stack back into the wall
(along with the double track curtains)
We are still trying to decide how to do the Balustrade.
My request is that it's glass and as minimal as possible.
The beauty about being the builder is that
we can decide these sorts of things as we go (I never take that for granted).
The tiler is on the home straight!
He's been there for weeks!
Our ensuite is almost done.
We ended up with a "freakishly light batch"
of Cascade Grey (more like Cascade Cream if you ask me!).
I was a little disappointed when I first saw it,
(OK... perhaps kind of devastated!!!)
but it's growing on me.
Our laundry is the first cabinetry to go in.
I swear the laundry looks bigger in real life!
The upstairs floors have been laid
(but won't be polished until the tilers have finished)
You know how nervous this makes me!
This is the bath for the kids' bathroom
(like all of us...waiting patiently for the tilers to finish)
.... but this was the sight that really made my heart sing
The stonemason is going to turn this Howqua
into a beautiful rock wall for the pool!
It will look something like this
It was a nice day to be working outside
I LOVE a rock wall!
The Driveway is getting poured tomorrow
and the stonemason will then lay a
Porphiry Crazy Pave Driveway
The house is very modern with straight lines
so I felt that it needed a bit of a contrast for the front and back areas.
I hope it works!
I hope your day was sunny and happy too!
Thank You for leaving your comments.
I love reading them.
