I made the mistake of showing my girls. Now they're trying to come up with a name starting with M because of the marking on her forehead

Plumbers left me with this little beauty today! Thanks! Fortunately we are allowed to cover it but it's sitting pretty high.
This replaces the riser pipe that was broken…

Thanks! I'm very surprised it's kind of come together ok. All our stuff is very hodgepodge. My MIL has her place decorated within an inch of its life…

Cool lamp!
What do your rabbits think of the cats? Ours were terrified every time a neighbourhood cat would cut through our backyard at the last house. I'm not sure…

So apparently we've been in for 3 1/2 weeks already! It kind of feels like yesterday and at the same time forever ago. It felt like home straight away!…

We got a wider skirting board to cover the concrete where the step down is. Ended up being a sheet of matrix cladding due to the size of the step…

The painter woke us up just after 7am (longest we've slept in the new house), to touch up the facade. …

Different builder obviously, but we held back lockup payment for 2 months due to incomplete roof and cladding. Right before their holiday I wouldn't pay it if there is…

I'm curious about 61. Our builders independent inspector picked up something about the sarking around the heater vent, it was being picked up on all of our SS's builds…

Shame about the mistakes, good thing you found it while the tiler is still there! It will look great once the grouting is done!

And the kitchen cupboards (mostly latches on overheads) still need adjusting.
I did have one final dig about the capping when our SS handed over the compliance certificate for the…

Thank you! Stools are from Kmart! $25!
Grout sealer is from Beaumonts (cheaper elsewhere), lithofin stain stop and I applied it with a roller bottle from bunnings. Very easy but…

Thanks I'm happy to hear it as many times as you want to say it! I'm pretty stoked with it too!

Middle of the door it touched the glass, didn't look quite right. We ended up somewhere between centre of the door and centre of the solid bit.
