Thanks Robina! I didn't know they were available at bunnings/masters i'll have to go have a looksee. I was looking into having one in the hallway of my previous house but never got around to doing.it before the ex and i parted ways (he bought me out of the house).
I'm thinking of getting one in the hallway of my new place and small ones in the loos as they won't have any natural light coming in.

Oh wow i love it all. What a great idea with the microwave hole in scullery i never even thought of that. Brilliant. And the shelves and the skylight.
Can i ask where you got the shelves in scullery
We got the shelves with HGWA.
They weren't supposed to be laminated but like the ones in the pantry. But when we saw them they had put in laminated ones a big plus for us.
IKEA have quite good laminated ones. Masters and Bunnings only have smaller ones.
I might have to have a look. Great space saver

Our flooring is just about done. Just a little bit more. A word of advice don't get too carried away wiping dust if you u are having any screeding done
It will all have to be done again.
Also our walls are not square so we will need skirting. The plasterers fault apparently. I guess our tilers would have noticed but they didn't speak English. We also found a small chip in our bench top.
They will fix it.
It's a good idea to have two PCIs because you pick stuff up as you go. The builder is fixing stuff but it's a pain to having people coming and going and our laundry door was left open not unlocked but open
I will post a couple of messy pictures and more on Monday once our blinds go in.

We arrived at 8.00am this morning waiting for outdoor blinds and we're still waiting at 1.15. Don't like the we will be there between 8.00 and 12.00.
Also received a call at 3.30 telling us our vertisheers that were going in tomorrow morning weren't even made yet
They reckon they can have them in by Wednesday. We move in Thursday with an open ensuitePoor neighbours.
Really worried now about our shutters.
We went with ABC because of personal connections but customer service hasn't been wonderful. Let's hope things get better.
On a good note we have TV. Yay
Really ready to move into our new house.

I hate it when you arrange a time with tradies and they don't show up or call. Really irritating when you've taken a day off work specifically to meet them.
When i built my first place you could get temporary paper blinds that you could stick to the window frame. Bunnings had them. Not sure if you can still get them, but it might be a stopgap measure until your blinds are installed

One of my colleagues had a nightmare with ABC, same sort of thing - called on the day they were to be installed to advise the fabric was out of stock for another X weeks.

My vertisheers go in tomorrow hopefully.
The did a rush job.
I've been fiddling with my scullery so much fun. I should probably have been doing other stuff. We have unpacked most of the kitchen and the pantry so Thursday moving day shouldn't be too bad. Can't wait

Wow how good does your home look Robina, I have been a bit busy (as your going to find out )and missed a few weeks so belated congrats and I hope your move goes ever so smoothly
We have the Karndean vinyl planks all through the living areas (except bedrooms) and they are great but we have noticed a few scratches under the table from the chairs so we bought a big rug for the dining table otherwise we love them.
Can't wait to see more pics

Yep we love the planks but we need skirtings. And I shall try the thingies you put under the chairs and stools. Sticky things.
Thanks Petad Jasminlee
rosemi and Wellard2ndtimers
