It’s been a good 4 months of renovating and living in an environment of noise and construction mess.  Can’t believe that very soon we’ll be stoking a fire at night, cook in a beautiful new kitchen and hang out with friends around the new bar.  Next week, I’ll show you how the new extension turned out, but first, the finishes…


The tiling of the interior of the pool is well underway and the limestone paving around it, have come up a treat.  The stone colours flow very well with the indoor tiles of the new extension and create a seamless look.  We can start visualising hanging out on the deck around the bbq and taking frequent dips in the pool as the day heats up.


The brickwork is slowly disappearing under render – this new room will have a bright, fresh look for that perfect indoor/outdoor feel.


To get the massive new bi-fold doors to the back of the house, extra muscle was required.  I couldn’t assist, as I was holding a “heavy” camera at the time…



Our photogenic dog, Chloe, is supervising the tiling process.  She’s trying her utmost to be in every single renovation shot.  These indoor limestone tiles from Marble Matters have lovely warm tones and tie in well with the interior timber flooring.


The last few bits, painting and electrical and we’re ready to roll.  Don’t miss next week’s reveal!
