FINALLY IT''S OURS!!!

5 months after the building contract date of completion
my FH and I have finally moved into our new house! We''re renting out our other two and it feels great to finally have a bit of financial pressure off I might add!!
Anyhoo, here are some pics... I guess it would be wise to have taken a pic of the front to start with but there''s a nasty summer storm a-brewin'' outside! I''ll get a pic later, but for now here''s the grand tour!

Starting with the front entrance...

The timber bi-fold doors (dear as poison but worth it!!) next to the dining area... they fold out to make an indoor/outdoor dining area...

From the other side of the room (excuse DH2B''s cheesy grin
), and I must add I am in LOVE with the floor!! The guy who polished it for us told me I chose the most expensive parquetry available... yeah so????

Backtrack a bit to the front entrance and a right turn into the hallway and 3 spare rooms, FH has already turned on into his office, hence the door closed... it''s a disgraceful mess
The front spare room does have a double bed and nice furniture in it, but there''s so much other STUFF in there I was too embarrased to take a pic! Just use your imagination

Through to the master bedroom, to the right of the bed is another robe with the most delicious stained ceiling-height timber doors! Can you tell we like our timber?
That''s DH2B''s robe, I put first dibs on the big one in the ensuite

And lastly the timber windows and door opposite the bed... these are the third component of the bi-folds I showed you earlier, and you can even see our lovely barbecue and gas bottle through the window
Aren''t the bedsheet curtains just divine???? We have beachtowels on the smaller bedroom windows, just lovely


I cannot wait to get real curtains


Whew!!! Thanks for looking!!

Beautiful! The woodwork is just gorgeous and definitely worth the money!

And that beach towel curtain looks like a shark took a bite out of it!
We had to do the same thing for about 6 weeks before we got our shades and we ordered them the day we moved in! They take forever!!!

Gorgeous house DandiAndi - congratulations! I especially love the hard wood floors, the bathroom tile, and the pendant lights and light wood cabinets in the kitchen. Very very nice.

Lovely home. I like your floors and the timber folding doors are really cool. When the weather''s good give us a shot of them open. LOVE the idea of expanding your dinning area to the outside.

What are your kitchen countertops?

Very pretty. I love the floors and the doors are really pretty too. I am guessing you live in Australia?
