We have a couple of little trees in but not a whole lot of progress. Our driveway is now finished, they poured the crossover this morning and only now will we get our occupancy certificate. But we love living up here on the hill.

Subways high five! http://i.imgur.com/vAKsDpP.jpg Here's a picture now that we're in. Bit of paint and some electrical picks it up a little.

Yeah they can be real expensive. Yours inspired me to go ahead and get started on mine ::wink:: (I'm impulsive like that), Luckily my partner works at Bunnings ($discount$) and he got a bonus at end of financial year including a $250 gift card so the actual cabinet units were paid for with that. But...

That whole thing is almost exactly what I want to do in my living room. Would like to have cabinets underneath as well, holding the desktop up instead of just the floating desk. It looks really great, were the kaboodle cabinets easy to install?

Thanks guys! We're definitely settling in. Most of the boxes are unpacked thank god. Only think is I have too much junk and I cant bare parting with half of it even if it's stupid stuff. I currently have a duck and a cat beanie baby sitting on my desk. Like I got those when I was like 15 and all the...

Well as a 21yr old designing and building my home with my 25yr old partner I expected to get a lot of 'Oh you're much to young, are you crazy?' type stuff but I had a surprisingly positive trend in most of the responses. I think most people are too surprised to come up with anything negative on the ...

Hi everyone! It's been ages since I posted. We only got our nbn connected today *rolls eyes*, long story short, we had group after group of people fixing everyone else's mistakes. Finally though, we have connection, hooray! I guess I will start where I left. The concrete for the driveway was poured ...

Wow you're powering along! We've been in for a month and only just got our nbn finished today *sigh* so I'm only just catching up on your progress. They look like they're doing a great job :) How exciting.

Hi EmyN :) I only have net on my phone and haven't had a lot if time to check in. We moved in last weeks pretty smoothly. The painting got done even though we cut a few corners and we'll have to do some touching up. It's all gone off without a hitch really. Only problem with the house so far is that...

It is like the block Emyn! All the electricians were working and getting in and out while there was a bloke with a bobcat out the front moving dirt around, meanwhile they're stepping over me sitting in the middle of the hallway painting. Definitely felt like I was on the block, just before the big r...

We're moving in a day!!! Whaaaat..... Today the electricians came again but didn't finish. As the were leaving I was like we're moving on wednesday remember and they were like yeah we have plenty of time! They had better get it done, that's all I can say. The concreters came and formed the driveway ...

Hi all! I knew everyone would like that colour. It has such a warming and calming effect. Home Angels, we move on wednesday which is terrifying because we haven't finished the painting. We're struggling through it and it will be finished but averagely. Builder came by today to check in on us and was...

I have a kitchen now so I can post a photo! http://i.imgur.com/r82A6DH.jpg Black cabinets. Diamond gloss pure mineral stone benchtop. Subway tile backsplash. It's a little quirky for some, but I love it so much.

Awesome! It's crankin' along. Yeah the formwork does look big but the slab still looks small right up until the plaster goes on. You must be getting excited now :)

That's good that you got them to seal it! That's the worst bit. All the sanding and puttying and the sealer takes forever and is so unsatisfying. I actually enjoy painting really, just when you have a whole house to do you get so sick of it. My Aunty was like 'I love painting, I'll come and help' bu...
