Starting to get there......

My study with the 'random' green doors hehe We didn't ask for these doors to be painted green but they are...lucky we love them so they are staying.
Our half finished Kitchen. I took this photo to show you what I mean by the overheads. The window dictates the height of the cabinets and already it had been lowered from where originally it was placed. The bench on the left has another white box on the end so at the moment it looks lop sided. The picture doesn't really do it justice to how nice it all looks in the space...doesn't matter hehe this is a house build blog not a 'Home Beautiful' spread! Pantry is to the left as well as fridge.

Walnut cupboards in the Laundry...I think I like them but once again, I am seeing things half finished!


Our Walnut theatre system. The colour of the wood grain I wasn't sure about last night. I need to be patient and wait till the carpets are in and my furniture that I have bought for this room. A very productive day, thank goodness as it was over 40 degrees and we still had the guys at the house.
Thankyou to all our tradesmen.....every single one has been lovely and polite.

Mrs B, I love your green doors - so shiny, clean and modern. Who is your 2 pac painter? Your kitchen looks good already. With the height I am sure you can find a way to make it work such as using a stool - they don't visually look that high in the picture.

Oh you have to step back a bit... it's all gorgeous... you are too close to it all. If I was doing your style of home, I would need YOU to advise me... it's so funky. Love the green doors and love the kitchen. I think the higher the better... creates height in the ceiling and gives a grander feel to the whole thing. A-M xx

Thankyou braveheart for your encouraging words on my blog! The height of the cabinets had been an ongoing issue for months but as Mr B points out, he is the one who cooks and we have a large butler’s pantry with storage galore, so what if they are a little high! He has a good point I think! I have no idea who the 2 pac painter is but gees they did a good job.

Hi A-M you are right, I am too close to the project that I am starting to pick on every little aspect of the house. I notice every tiny imperfection in the plaster and forever checking out the paint work. As for my style of home, you wouldn’t believe it but I have always loved period style houses. We renovated an old home over 10 years previously so this house is like the opposite of what we have lived in before. It will be a challenge to blend some of our antique furniture into a modern interior. I am actually looking forward to this challenge...

The sheen on those green doors is amazing. I love the way your home is taking shape Mrs B. Look forward to the next photo installment.

Hi again... I had to pipe in and say I LOVE those green doors!! And the walnut cabinets are fantastic.. you'll love them, wait and see.
As for being so close to a project that you see every imperfection... I totally get this! But you know, I've found (and since you've renovated before you've likely found the same) that some of those "faults" that were glaring originally became non-existant when every thing is all finished! Well almost :-) I may still see something but no one else does!!
I'm looking forward to following your blog - you'll be moving in soon!
