The House

Finally, a year after first talking with the builder, and 9 months since signing the contract, we are almost done! 

The last little things should be tidied up next week and then we can have it all signed over to us, and pay the balance I suppose.

Such a long journey it has been, with much knowledge gained, about myself and also about the building industry.   I really enjoyed the material selection and finer detail fitout.  I was very meticulous about certain things, most of the tradies thought I was mad at times, but in the end they could appreciate my original vision.

Here are some photos of the (mostly) finished product.

 Outside dining.

 Top deck.

This part was the original lounge/dining room.  Through the doors we have a 'Loggia' which is an outside undercover room.

 Kitchen. Most people questioned my decision for a black matt finish on the cupboards but it turned out so well and really surprised alot of people.

Kitchen, with dining to the right.

 Island lights.

Concrete pendants that hang above the Kitchen island.

Master bedroom.   The middle door of the wardrobe hides the entrance to the en-suite.

En suite. This was taken before it was completely finished.


This was the old kitchen, now a bedroom, complete with ridiculously difficult to build Odessy loft bed!

Today I link up with Essentially Jess for IBOT (I blog on Tuesdays).
