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....

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.

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.
