So we have 17 days to go, we're waiting on the painting to be done, in order to get moving on the inside fit out, and today?.......... no painters.
Hmmm... slight rush guys.... we have a lease ending very soon and no where to live after that..... so lets get this party started.
Some more photos.....another view of the hall in the morning light. That's the Great Room on the right, waiting for a fireplace and cabinetry........and paint and a clean floor.... and wallpaper and curtains... oh stop. Sorry about the angle... I'm not a photographer. I love the light in this home, at all times of the day. That's a good sign isn't it!
Another view of our ensuite bathroom, showing the cornice work on all the corners. Nice skirting Iain! Robe is around to the right. Little double doors lead out into the hall, to the right, past the robe.
Look at that picket fence - perfection, Dominique, you legend! Will be as pretty as a picture when painted white. Grow, little trees, grow, to hide that other hideous fence.
The top floor has been painted, just waiting for the gloss white on the windows. That's the main bedroom up there, with the ensuite to the left.......built right out under the eaves to maximise space.
Not the most exciting photo, but it will be soon - the downstairs powder room. Wall hung sink directly in front with grey French wooden mirror above. Shower is behind that wall to the left of the window... with NO glass, just open... after all, I have to clean the place, so only one shower will have glass, the main/boys bathroom upstairs (and no-one is allowed to use that one, so I never have to clean it..ha!).
Toilet recess (with no door) is to the right, behind that wall to the right, with an opaque, 10 light, French door, also to the right in front of the toilet, leading down to the laundry. Look at those gorgeous architraves, thanks Harry and Iain (the 'good carpenters'). I am going to spend all my time lying on my floor gazing at my architraves, skirtings and cornices..... it's the little things!... should have been a carpenter.
Great Room cabinetry is supposed to arrive tomorrow.
Be still, heart!
I'll be loiterin' tomorrow. A-M xx
