I am a SAHM who does work from home occasionally, dedicated to raising 3 Godly, independent, healthy children. Loving the home building process though it is not without challenges. I have fairly free reign over the creative aspect of the project...just not the financial side!

New upstairs joinery

Yesterday saw this new addition getting puttied and painted to finish it off properly. I am yet to find the right decorator items to fit in the cubes but I have some things that will do for now. In the floating cupboards, you'll find board games, puzzles and our old photo albums that I can't bear to part with just yet.

Kids' study

...is pretty much finished now. A few more accessories to fill in shelves, a visit from the electrician and we are done. The children love using their own space for homework. Long may the novelty factor continue.

I love it so much. Unfortunately I didn't think it through enough at planning stage and we have had to move powerpoints and light switches to accommodate the joinery - a cost I would have preferred spending on something else.

Our first birthday!

So very hard to believe that it has been 12 months since we rushed over to Eden Brae Head Office to collect our keys. That time has simply flown by. On the other hand, it is so much our home and we cannot really remember the 12 years that we lived in Timbarra Road.
To celebrate, we are finishing off the rooms that still need completion. Kids' study joinery yesterday & tomorrow and a delivery of lounge room furniture & a new desk for me tomorrow. There may be some champagne involved too ;-)
Another big thankyou to my main supporters paid and unpaid. My wonderful designer Anastasia is ready to see the back of me, I think - it has been a BIG project. And my friend, Lucinda, has been so supportive and excited for/with me.
I will give you a sneak peek at one side of the kids' study before we finish it off....

Joinery time

I am busy behind the scenes working, with Anastasia  from re-do my space, on the final few rooms in the house. It will very exciting to get them usable and looking complete - kids' study, adult study/with sofa bed and lounge room.
We are working with a joiner, Darren from Davella Kitchens to fit out the kids' study with desks and bookcases. Here are some plans....

My boy's desk with bookshelves and lower cupboards

While he was here, we also had plans drawn up for some other joinery to fill in niches.

Opposite kids' study for school bags and some floating shelves in the media room

The large upstairs niche will gain some floating cupboards and cubes

And the laundry will get some more cupboards so a hanging rod can be attached

Looking forward to this all being installed sometime in the next month or so.
