Home Sweet Home!

Posted by Cath Swan |

So, we are finally in our new home!!

We are absolutely ecstatic and loving everything about our home and the area we live in.

We still have a lot of landscaping to start on, boxes still to unpack, not to mention putting pictures up and toilet roll holders and towel racks. It is still early days.

In the next couple of weeks we will see our final fence go up, fill loaded into the back yard, all our blinds will go up and hopefully before Christmas our driveway will go in!

Lots more updates and photos in the following blogs, but I will give you a taste of our house as it is presently!! Thanks for reading!


Settlement day!!!

Posted by Cath Swan |

Well this is just a short post, cause we're right in the middle of moving.... but yes we have settled and the house is ours!!

We are currently moving in amidst painting some feature walls. We had originally put feature walls into the budget for the painters to do, but realised we could save ourselves $1500 doing the painting ourselves! Something we wouldn't have attempted unless we had painted quite a few houses previously.

In the family room we have put a beautiful caramel colour, and in the next couple days we will add a chocolate colour to the rumpus room, which will blend in with our kitchen cupboards. The caramel walls will also go with the caramel splashback in the kitchen.

Our watertank was delivered and connected last week, to keep with our 5 star rating required in the Laurimar Estate.

There is still last minute things to be connected and installed so I will update again later in the week with photos etc.
