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.

Some of the new joinery

There will be a small burst of activity on the blog as we head towards the end of 2014. We are waiting for some more furniture and furnishings to arrive to finish off the final rooms in the house. All ordered and paid for, just waiting on delivery.

Yesterday, our amazing joiner installed the long awaited extra bits and pieces to fill in niches and gaps. We are stoked with the outcome!

Outside the kids' study - previously the school bag dumping ground

Now a cupboard for each child

And a drawer each for Brad & I

Floating bookshelves in the media room

Screaming out for some books

Overhead cupboards in the laundry to accommodate the new hanging rail. The timber block needs to be painted.

Not sure what will go in the cupboards - so much storage considering the other side of the room houses full length cupboards!   

We had a large niche upstairs that has been transformed but it needs some painting work to it before I reveal it. Within the next 2 weeks, Davella Kitchens will install all the desks and shelving units in the kids' study. Another exciting day in our household.

A very quiet week

All has been quiet on our Eden Brae house - no sign of action mostly due to the rain, I think. I did receive  phone call from the electrical company to inform us of an issue with our job. Our plans have recorded that we requested 2 external downlights in the eaves outside the study window. Um, we don't have any eaves there. Doh! We need to come up with some alternate or get credit for the downlights. I am waiting to hear back from them as to whether we can put on updown light there and one on the outer garage wall to balance it out.

I did say at the end of last week that there were some issues that I needed to get sorted with Troy from my time on site.
1) Our contract states that the shower niches are 270mm in height. I confirmed with Troy earlier in the year that the measurement was indeed the finished height. When I measured them on site, the timber framing is 270mm so by the time they put gyprock & tiling etc up, it will be significantly less. Troy said that he hadn't overlooked this and that it would be rectified.
2) One of our PCVs was to add extra noggins to every wall of the house(easier that specifying exactly which walls) We have some sports memorabilia to hang and want some large mirrors etc. There appeared to be no extra noggins at all. Troy will fix this.
3) I wasn't sure which way the front door would open and indeed which one would open. I wanted to check this before it was manufactured offsite. Tory was looking into this for me.

I am hoping that next week sees a flurry of activity at the EBH house and maybe even our current home sold ;-)
