House update...

I'm still alive.  Still packing… will it never end?  Still planning on moving to the new house in about two weeks (I've been saying that for about a month now!!)

Here are a few photos of our progress (these were taken almost a week ago now so things are a bit further along than you'll see here).

The raised lounge is painted and currently being used as a temporary dining room.
This is the entry.  The front door is to the right in these pictures.  The hole you can see will be converted into storage space for shoes.
This is Minty's room.  I moved some of their toys in there so they could play while I was working on site.  I must say this strategy wasn't particularly successful.  They stayed in here for about 5 minutes and then decided it would be more fun to wreak havoc in the rest of the house and play in the mud in the back yard!
This is the main space - kitchen to the left and dining area under the lower ceiling.  Since this photo was taken we've started painting in here.
This is my current project.  I'm painting the bathroom walls with a textured grey paint.  It is taking quite a while to get a good finish but I think it's looking pretty good so far.


  1. Love the light flowing into the dining room! Hope packing and moving goes smoothly. xo

  2. It's looking amazing, it will be so exciting to move in Hope your beautiful pantry door has a lock on it :)

  3. Oh, how exciting- it really looks like a house now, with walls everywhere!

    You'll never want to leave that beautiful bathroom, once it's done!

    Best of luck for the final haul!

  4. It's looking great Susan. Love the big windows and tall ceilings and the steps! On the home stretch now. Before you know it you will be in and settled. All the best for the move x
