Let there be light!

We went shopping today!  We have ordered all our lighting that we needed for the house.

We have this pendant light on its way and it will soon be living over our dining table!!!

Over our island bench in the kitchen, three of these little beauties will light up the bench for my husband to cook dinner!

We have these flush ceiling lights for the bedrooms and a couple of other rooms.
And, finally our backyard outdoor lights to make sure we can play when its dark!

Move in day is getting close! We really can't wait!

The pool has started!

Excavation of the pool started today... he is bit of a look at what they did.

They dug out some dirt...

And more dirt!

And even more dirt!

And then put it in big piles!

The fitout continues... really quickly!

Those kids at Wisdom are on fire. So much happens each day now... (gee I hope I don't jinx us!)

The powerpoint and TV point in the alfresco ceiling!

The water and gas points in the alfresco area!

The towel rail in the main bathroom!

The shower! I love this shower fitting!

The walk in wardrobe starts to take shape...

The handles!

More handles!

The ensuite shower! Still love the fittings!

The toilet roll holder!  What? C'mon it is really pretty nice looking and deserves to be seen!

The towel rail in our ensuite... so much room!!!!

The toilet in our ensuite!  Looks serviceable!

The tapwear installed in one of the ensuite sinks!

The front door handles installed!

The kitchen mixer tap!

The kitchen pantry!

Inside the kitchen pantry!

More pantry love!

The laundry tub... not very exciting, but it is in! 

So, it looks like we are still on track to be moving in around early October!


The electricians have been out and about getting things done.

Our up-down lights on the front porch!!!

The slimline powerpoints, that I am going to need to buy lots of powerpoint covers for!

The drains in the bathrooms!

The power for the alfresco BBQ area

The wall light at one of the doors.

The bathroom light-heater-sucker thing.

The wall lights in the rear hall so our little guy can take himself to the bathroom without bumping into doors... this is going to be a few years off, but you have to plan ahead!

The television powerpoint and antena for the alfresco area!  We can watch the cricket while we swim!

The alfresco area, with the sweep fan and down lights!

Downlights in the family room!

Our pretty really nice looking downlights!

The front hallway!

Interior Fit Out

Once again, I have been too busy with life to blog!  Bad me!

The interior fitout is well underway, the tiles in the laundry are down... I am told they will be cleaned before handover, but happy so far!

The wall unit in the study is just screaming out for some books to be loaded... can't wait!

The wall unit in the home theatre and the start of the painting is looking good!

The sinks and cabinets are in the bathroom, and joy of joys, the tiler put the tiles in exactly as we requested!

The shower and recess, waiting for the feature tiles... which are not in the country yet! Yikes!

The kitchen coming together nicely!

Our undermount kitchen sink!

The family room television cabinet and wall!

More kitchen love!

Really happy with how the kitchen is starting to look!

The SS thinks we should have handover in about three weeks... kind of hard to believe that this will be our home soon! Can't wait!
