Cabinetry Installed & Painting Begins

Front Door
*Yet to be stained

Internal Paint
*White ceilings, doors, arcs, skirts
Off White Yellowy walls, not the colour I wanted, 
I had more of a deeper colour in mind like this...

This is by Haymes, Oak Buff, 
I took this in as a reference for 
paint selection & was told 
at my colour appointment they 
had no shade simullar to this.
Was very dissapointed.

Paint by builder is only two coats sprayed so 
budget depending, it could do with a re-paint anyways!

Bathroom Vanity

*Overheads will be done after handover incorporating a hanging rail.
The opposite side is emply space that I get to decide what 
cabinetry hubby can make for me! Definately will include some built in 
hamper draws. When he draws up the design I will post it.

Ensuite Vanity 
*Will change to end cupboards into draws and install a mini pull out bin :)

Brick Work

Bricking had begun Friday and considering how bad the weather was yesterday we were pleasantly surprised with how much was done.

Austral Urban One - Nougat - Rolled off white mortar

I posted earlier about the doubt we had in the bricks we chose, particularly the sample we had from our colour appointment being quiet awful, so it was a relief today to see them looking so good! Only one section of brickwork had the mortar appearing dry and the off white colour showed up the bricks perfect.  

It is still my opinion and lesson learnt never to chose a painted brick again. 

Buyer beware, imperfections or chips show up as orange. 

So far we have very few of these imperfections, our fingers are crossed for the rest of the brick work.

In pictures below the mortar was still wet looking so it will appear darker until it drys out completely.
