OUR HOUSE SOLD - okay we had to take a drop in price but in this market just to sell has been great!!
We are now in a rental home - location is great for the kids schools and we were able to also have our loyal four legged family member live with us - there are a lot of rental homes that do not take pets!! So all in all it is good - unfortunately the house does not have air con - it is two storey with no eaves - crazy in an Australia climate!! It is also without a dishwasher which has been a little blessing in disguise - it has created opportunity for more family time -we all do the dishes together after dinner!!
The new house - plans in at council - the Planning Authority have given the green light to the sub division down the middle so we will have a long narrow block!! Finances or lack of mean we are not able to build a two storey home but I am excited about the home that we have designed - the hallway from front door to where the living are begins is 21mt long and at it narrowest just over 2.2mt wide - so a pretty impressive space!!! Flooring is still being negotiated - I would love dark flooring - we are looking at either cork or bamboo - jury is still out on that one. Kitchen - WHITE obviously both the dilemma is oven - large free standing or two ovens (60cm) and a separate cook top???
But all is progressing and now it really is wait and wait and wait for council and the other authorities to do there thing!!!
In the meanwhile more inspiration for the interior -
