House Update close, yet so far away

Well, I haven't done a house update for a while, mainly because we've been so busy working on it!

  • The painting is pretty much finished...inside and out.
  • The stairs are in!!
  • The lights are in too!!
  • The driveway is finished.
  • Heating and cooling is installed.
Now we just need to put floor coverings in...some of which will be done tomorrow.
Then the tiling and plumber fitting of...and then the finishing carpenter will come and do his thing.

Then onto the garden.....hopefully the weather will be a little nicer soon.

 Measure twice, cut once. The mantra around here.

Since I took this pic, the stairs have a railing and have been painted and stained (by yours truly)

 Mr 3P has been working away this weekend to get the fireplace ready for rendering and new floorboards. That little Dremel Saw Max has been very handy around here lately. 

We went looking for a new gas fireplace to put in the existing cavity, but we haven't found one we like yet. Any suggestions?

 I pretty sure this is the bathroom floor tile we're going with. I really wanted something that was fairly neutral and didn't show dirt and hair easily. Everyone I spoke to at ALL of the tile stores suggest that you go for a matte tile for this purpose too. Time will tell.
Hopefully tomorrow we will have this laid downstairs. Will let you know how it goes.

And if you're in the market for a new sofa, come back soon as Mr3P is guest posting for me this week about what to look for (and avoid) when buying a new sofa  (he's been in the know for sometime on this subject).
See you soon.
