Setting up our home theatre chairs. I still need to vacuum the rest of the room, only made sure that it's properly vacuumed where the chairs go.
Hombre had to paint the wall one more coat cos it's got patches in it which he missed cos he probably painted it at a certain time of day and we didn't have light in here then.

Lovin' our home theatre chairs!!! So comfy despite it not your usual soft lounge chair, depth of cup holders is perfect and love the batman-like backs. Lol! Warning: Photo spam!!! These photos might be my last post for a while on this thread, will be back when we're moved in. It's been fun!
We will have our glass display case at the back and there's still enough room to walk behind the chairs to have a look.
Han Solo will be on the inside of the door of the home theatre.

Your progress indoors looks great.
How is the outside landscaping progressing. paving etc?.
Cheers Beetaloo, we are yet to do anything outside. We still have to do as you mentioned plus order our decking. Also, waiting for curtains before we actually sleep in the house. There's still heaps to do but it's nice that we can get things slowly out of storage into the house without moving them again.

Just a few pics. Our dining set finally out which I love! Also, the 3-seater of our current lounge. The two single seats we are still using in the shed. Upgrading of the lounge will have to wait. Still missing rugs, cushions, pendant lights, window/door coverings, artworks, etc. Hoping to get the Whispair rangehood soon. Hombre repainted the fish tank, will do for now. Just need to get more plants and another fish. Not moved in yet but feeling happy that it looks clean.
The TV stand is only temporary. We'd have a built-in wall to wall floating unit there later on.
Open plan space
Put up a few things in our home theatre. Hombre's signed x-files picture, jaws, madmax car , light sabers, highlander sword, yoda. Hombre's other movie stuff remain in the boxes until we get the display cases. Will be like Christmas for him when he gets them out. It's his baby but I love being in that room too! And it's not complete yet.
Our vanity in the 3-way bathroom. Just waiting for our sparky to fit out the 2 little lights which are the same as in our ensuite.
Ensuite vanity. ❤️
Hombre took a long time to paint our 13 internal doors. Enamel paint is so slow. Didn't help that some of our doors have one colour to one side and a different colour to another side to match the walls. Happy that they are all in and look good. Colours of door are Soft apparition for walls that are iced violet, double strength July Sky for walls that are July Sky (inside of office, main bathroom and laundry), and Tasman Blue for the home theatre side of the door.
All Soft Apparition
Pic where another side is double strength July sky (don't mind the switch, sparky coming back to finish off the rest of fitouts including my undertile heating yay!)
Another double strength July sky door
And the home theatre pic shows the Tasman Blue colour for the inside. Hombre is a glutton for punishment. Lol!
Just 3 weeks ago the place looks like a bomb! Getting the doors in made a huge difference.
Some of the doors being painted in the garage before we had lights there:
We have lights now in the garage which are this from Bunnings and they look sleek.
Also, Hombre "let" me help with the painting in the garage haha. Enjoyed it.
Love this washing machine. Sooo quiet!

Looking great Twy... nice additions to the media room..
Cheers Reg! I wish Hombre would do things like dropdown ceiling or step up to the media room but he's not worried. Must say, it looks like once the stuff are all in, not gonna matter that much.
