Where It's At

Hi! Back with some photos. It's all happening now. Busy times.

Laundry tiling commenced ......yet not grouted. My tiler was mortified that I was going to publish photos of his unfinished work! Some taps are in....

Bathroom tiles. Boys bath is a mosaic version of the floor tile, to make it a bit more masculine. Ensuite bath hob has the white damask wall tile = more feminine! Frameless glass for shower to come, once grouting is finished.


My tiler laid out my fireplace tile for me. I love it. It will tone in so beautifully with my brown/grey spotted gum floors. Can you see them (the floors) under all that white paint? They will be sanded back on the 21st of May.... and counting.

Laid up against the fireplace, along the window seat.

Hi Harry! He's chipping out a channel for a flush bolt.

Staining commenced on stair rail. Balustrades and newel posts will be white, like everything else in the house! Need my sunnies for site visits now... it is sooo bright!

Door handles on.

... yet still painting around them. Painter number 3, you are doing such a marvellous job.

Window latches on.

Windows glossed up.

Kitchen tiling started - minus grout and painted architraves!... and stove and rangehood!

Pantry tiling minus grout!

Stove minus everything not firmly attached to it (all sitting on my dining room table at home).

Lights being installed.

Airconditioning installation almost complete.

The random stone is a BIG job. Still laying it out on the terrace.

Align LeftStill lots of dirt on Friday... but today, it's all gone! ....forgot my camera though...
Front fence will be rendered and will have gates to match balustrade pattern. Look, we almost have front stairs. They lead nowhere though as that area inside the front gate has to be built up to them, be concreted, then paved.

Less than 3 weeks to go. There will be more action this week so more photos to come.


  1. Are you LOVING the white? It looks so beautiful!!! I'm dying to know what colors you will be using throughout your home to decorate with.
