It's now officially ours!

On Monday we settled on our sale and purchase!

We are now living around boxes stacked right up the walls as we move on Saturday.

And here are some pics of our new place. The carpet is up now (which you can see in the first pic) and the floor guys are busy taking out the staples, sanding today then staining tomorrow, then the two coats of water based urethane after that.

When the carpet came up we discovered a big square of Masonite in the dining room. It looks like there used to be a stair case to the down stairs! So the floor guys are sourcing some matching floor boards and patching it up... Hope it will look ok.

We are going to have to camp out down stairs on sat, sun and half of Monday while the floors upstairs dry... Going to be fun with with four of us all on our mattresses on the floor together... Well Lachie will be in the bassinet so he won't know the difference.

Exciting times! Just can't wait to get in there!



  1. Wow - the features you can see appear already are incredible. Those windows are just stunning! xx

  2. YAY!! So very excited for you guys. Hope the 'camp out' goes okay with the boys and that you are settled nicely into your gorgeous new home very soon my friend xx

  3. Oh WOW Janette, it is looking lovely already, I can imagine how gorgeous it will be after you have added your furniture and personal touches. A very exciting time indeed. Enjoy the whole experience, as stressful as moving is, once you're in you'll be on cloud nine xo

  4. How exciting Janette! Don't worry about the floor patches, we had to do that in our lounge room. I don't think people notice. I can't wait to see more of yours :)

  5. It is all very exciting Janette. I am impressed that you are organised and straight into it all. The house looks like it has some really lovely places I can't wait to see it once you've moved in. xx

  6. Whoohoo - can't wait to see what you do with it! xxxx AG
