House Build


Well what a crazy couple of months (phew).  The house has finally started to take shape; a few weeks behind due to rain (as many a Queenslander will know about that one).   Not complaining as we have so needed it, but its nice to be able to have the roof on &, hopefully, covered by the end of the week.  Fingers crossed!!

As I live in a cyclone area it has to be strong so the brick option was the best.   What I didn't realise until I met with the bricklayer, is that the bricks get filled with concrete, so I should have a nice solid home. Will soon find out in cyclone season with 6 forecast (Oh dear)!!

I am starting to look at how I want to furnish the inside; swanky fabrics & all kind of gorgeous items, budget permitting :) Am choosing my lights at the moment I need a pendant iron one on a chain for my front porch so if any one can find me a nice black iron & glass one, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by & sorry for not being around, I have missed your comments & tried so hard to pop by & see what some of you have been up to!!

I admire so many of you for keeping at your blogs constantly with such inspiration too!

Elaine :)

Thanks for the update. I was wondering what was happening but guessed that you were busy with the build. I'm sure it will be gorgeous once it's all done. And use that Marguerite fabric! x

Your house looks amazing and you have done so well in spite of al the rain that we have had to endure.

That will be one strong house:) It must be exciting to see the progress. And to be starting the best bit of deciding on all the finishes. Enjoy:)
