The last 2 weeks.... theoretically. Moving day is the 29th. Hasn't it come up fast! We still don't know where we will be sleeping on the 29th. The rate limiting step is my bank. I have been assured that the house itself (everything in our contract) will be finished...... but approvals take time, we are running this one right down to the wire and well.... you know banks... they don't hurry.
The floors are being sanded and polished this Thursday. It will take a few days. So until then, everything inside has to be finished. I saw a cabinetry person floating around on Friday so I assume there will be 'knobs' on stuff, when I turn up this morning. Most of the internal painting has been done. My airconditioning guys are finishing off their stuff today and tomorrow. Range hood is in. Stove will be fully installed, once the floors are done.
Random stone will be finished early this week and 'Lloydy' will make an appearance to finish the pool. My little one's eyes bugged out last night when I informed him that he would have a pool in 2 weeks. It never occurred to him that the hole in the ground would be filled with water and actually become a pool. We've never had a pool before..... pity it's going into winter. Stay tuned for shots of 'winter swimming boys'... I'm sure they will give it a go!
My focus this week is arranging window coverings. I love the one pictured. It would look great in the study with all the black furniture. Sorry folks, but in the first month of occupancy, I feel that 'The House' windows will be shrouded in 'dinosaur sheets'! I have left a few projects for after we move in. It was hard enough keeping my lungs together to get the house built. The fiddly bits can wait.... just get in there A-M, just get through to May 29th (all inclusive!). Meet you all in the pool house, Saturday 30th, for a morning coffee!
This is where I muse about home design, interiors, my life, my boys and stuff that sort of stops my heart. I have an online store full of my favourite Hamptons style lighting over at www.capecoddesigns.com.au ... and ... I'm currently planning my next house build.
