Current Home for Sale - sad to see it go....

Having started our 1st home and lived for most of the time here in Australia, this is our humble abode.

We are upgrading but would love to keep this home as it serves us well. ( not served because it still is serving us well now)

Which makes it kind of sad, here is our kitchen. We are hoping that a lovely family take this over and make sure its well taken care of. 

Here is our rumpus room - which is the games room. A very handy spare room to have!

Our dining area - Dave has landscaped the side garden with a vege patch consisting of a few herbs and includes a nectarine tree. What you can see is the swainy bamboo with a little Japanese Garden concept outside.

our bed room.

Daniel's bedroom. The other bedroom is simialr in size but decided not to post up. too many pics!

The side and back yard is really nice for the dogs to run around and for Daniel to spend time in.

Alas, this home is for sale, and pray that the family who buys this will treat it with the same care we did.

Plumbing taking shape

Its starting to take shape.. I am not going to think abt my roof at this stage. too scary!
Sinks are going in - thats the kitchen area.

Looks good - I think I might have to contact Claytons Kitchen to get another pc of board to cover up the are where the dishwasher was meant to go as we are not having one installed.  No point when we have hands! :)  We have one in our current house for the past 8 yrs and never used it once!
Thats additional storage for us!

Toilet bowl in. Check.

Laundry sink in. - check.

Broken plaster - done to get the plumbing in - check.
( I would have thot they cut in and not smash it?)

Showers in - check.
Hope there is more progress to see in the next week!

This is embarassing!

On the 4th of Feb, Melbourne encountered very freakish weather and it poured more than 100mm in 20 mins. This is the aftermath.
Note: This is the bottom storey ceiling!

Welcomed by a waterry entry..... drips everywhere.

The entire garage is filled with water stains on all plaster walls.

Upstairs-  all the floorboards were wet - and now watermarks have formed.  Thats' Daniel's room.

Master Bedroom entry also showed signs of water...

I havent noticed this before... hmmm..

Water stains on stairs too...... this is really embarassing coming from a renowned builder, I am somehow worried about living there in this? It better get fixed and inspected. This is just wrong.

Beauty..... the right colours at last!

This is great- went to have an inspection today and we finally have our whitish looking kitchen cabinents! The wrong one that they gave us at first looked pretty bad..
Tiles and mostly done and the home is in FIX UP stage now, so its looking closer to looking like a home!
