The time has come and very happily, gone! The big move was huge, tiring but not traumatic- so pretty much went as well as what could be expected.

It has now been 5 weeks since we moved in. I know everyone would say this but wow...the time has flown.

Here are the biggest les...

Oh lordy lordy lordy. This is so god damn exciting, even Steve is squealing.

We had our final inspection today, where we attempted to walk around with the authority of an art enthusiast inspecting the Mona Lisa. In reality, there was lots of umm-ing and ahh-ing where we...

Patience is a virtue. Watching paint dry is just plain boring.

We have practically spent the entire week watching paint dry- literally. When Steve went to the house on Monday, our house had been infested by a vicious case of the blue painters tape. There was more though- n...

I have been on the look-out for a range of different pieces of furniture which would suit the space. Below, I have collated some of my favourite pieces (and featured each individually below)- hope you don't think I have horrible style!!

An oversight in our design stage came very close to being disastrous (definitely not an exaggeration) for our house.

Let our near miss become a lesson to you all.

Picture this. Walking through the display home, when you come across the second living area (aka rumpus) northe...

Choosing what you will build your house out of involves making one thousand, five hundred and thirty-four decisions. Precisely.

Don't believe me? Mwahahaha where do I start. Actually, I know exactly where to start- The wondrous world of "standard" vs "upgrade" fixtures and...
