Progress and valuation, woo hoo!!

We visited Matilda yesterday for a  sticky beak on the progress.
Some paint preparations have started.
We have chosen our paint colours and have gone with a mid grey and white (except we can't call it white, so off grey) trim. You can see some of the primer on the back wall and under the roof line.
Some more prep work for painting.

Then the framework for our ensuite in the sunroom.

You can't see the view that well, but that is what we will look out on when we shower.

The new framework in the main bathroom and the undersheeting has gone down.

The new sunroom ceiling.

The back where the kitchen will live. The new floor has been laid in bedroom 3, so no giant fall anymore!!

The kitchen framework for the tiling of the splashback.

The best news last night, our valuation came in from the bank and it is what we need and means we come out on top, slightly, with the finished product. Phew, what a relief, our debts can all be re-piad and we haven't overcapitalised, which we were a bit worried about.

So all going well, thankfully.
Water proofing happen this week and walls are completed, septic tank goes in, and solar is installed.
I can't wait to show you in a weeks time what changes Matilda has undergone.


  1. Wow. It's going to look terrific! xx

  2. Wow, you are really making some progress now! Matilda is going to be gorgeous. The setting of your house is stunning!

  3. Yay, yay, yay. What a relief for you both. Now just head down, tails up getting the boring bits done so you can show us all the girly decorative bits. Looking forward to your paint choices. I have ( in my typical fickle fashion) changed my mind about our exterior house colour and am also leaning towards a grey having been inspired by a sneak exterior shot of one of the houses on " The Block". Still slapping around white paint as much as possible between sick children and sick husbands. melx

  4. Soon you'll be looking back at these photos and it will seem like so long ago.Fantastic progress.
