The in-betweens

The last time you guys saw the plaster boards went up, and before you knew it, I’ve moved in. I can’t believe I’ve been living in the house for over a month already!

So, the in-betweens.

The painting began after the plaster boards went in. Remember the green entrance door? Well, they gave it a white coat, before giving it a final coat of paint.

After.
Guess what the final coat colour is going to be!
Colour will be revealed below.

The internal walls were painted too.

In that meantime, the carpentry happened very quickly.

Left: Cabinets in the kitchen. Right: Cabinets in butler’s pantry, door leading to future backyard/veggie patch. The backyard is still looking the same, by the way. 😦

The bathrooms had their tiling done, vanities went in, shower roses and toilets installed. Here’s what the ensuite looked like when I managed to sneak in one day:

Left: Toilet. That erection looking thing is actually the tap to freestanding bath that I will, one day hopefully, buy. Right: shower to the left, vanity to the right.

Soon after, handover happened, and we moved into the house that looked pretty much like this:

Left: Vanity in shared bathroom. Right: Shoe room. I had some of the internal doors painted black too!

Tada~ Welcome to my humble abode. Lolllll.

After the handover, we spent the first couple of weeks doing some of the flooring and cleaning up the rental house. It was almost a nightmare trying to do all that during the 2 weeks, and I’m really glad we have survived it all, thanks to my 3 trusty musketeers. The house has progressed since then, but that will be a post for another day 🙂
