Floors and walls

Dave smashed it out this weekend. It is looking so good now. *smiley face* I am so proud of him. He even made the time to take the boys fishing.

It started with insulating the ensuite, straightening the walls and then hanging the plaster.

We have two niches in the shower. One for shampoo etc and the other is a footrest for shaving legs. How cool is that???
 Just have to hang the ceiling plaster and then install the cavity slider and finish the wall on the other side of that.

Then he plastered the laundry room.
Next came the rest of the blackbutt flooring for the laundry.

This was great news as I could finally get the wood pile out of the dining area. Well first it was stacked near the fireplace so he could sort it, but then it was all installed.



Then, we decided to leave the old baltic pine floorboards in the cupboard. Mainly because the walls were sitting on it and also I think it is a cute reminder of what the house used to look like.


 Feels so much closer to being complete now that the plastering and flooring is almost done. It is times like these that I get a new little buzz of excitement.

Tonight we are picking up the tiles for the ensuite. Hip, hip hooray!

Oh and I spend my birthday money on a new bar fridge for the bar area in the living room.
I got this Esatto Mini Bar fridge for $199 (down from $300) from Masters.
Esatto Mini Fridge 88L Retro Black EMF87B

The good things about it are that it has a separate door for the freezer so things will stay colder and it has a light in it, which so many bar fridges don't. Plus it is so cute don't you think?
Now to fill it with drinks.
