Looking beautiful Mclaren. I liked the ceiling above the kitchen and your entry. Too good. Just one question. Why are the bricks in main bathroom still exposed?

Hi ourhome, if you look closely the bricks are inside the wall - they're not the outside bricks. Looks like they have built a wall to support the bath. We'll have to wait and see what comes next!!

Ourhome/Mclaren, they put the tiles over those bricks! I thought the same thing when I saw it in our home.

[quote="Lucene"] Have you started packing yet?
Hi Lucene - no not yet - we've still got a fair way to go! We still have a lot of stuff that we didn't upack when we moved house in October so I'm looking forward to reacquaiting myself with that too when the time comes. The flusher has been working all weekend so we must be getting close to cornices!! Can't wait to see them they will make such a difference.

Update - Flushing is now finished (took a week), showers have been "tanked" and we've had lots of deliveries - cornices, architraves, board for eaves and doors!!!! Just need some tradies.
Will post some pictures when there's something interesting to see!

May 04, 2011 2:20 pm
Yeah what's wrong with them? Don't they want to finish my house?? Can't complain though it's only the last couple of days things have slowed down but with all those deliveries I'm sure the workmen will follow

Melbourne. For soundproof reasons it will be RWAR (room within a room) with a floating floor. A lot of tricky angles and airtight caulked joints with no thin or weak spots…
