Things with the house keep moving along at a gradual pace but it also feels like there’s no end. Probably because we are over tired and continue to do little bits at a time.
Anthony continued to do the tiling and just finished off the bottom tiles of the bathroom and then the following evening both of us got stuck into grouting and finished it really quickly. Definitely makes a difference with that extra person.
Over the Australia Day holiday we again tried to make the most of the day off and went shopping for the house. We went to our usual builders store, Bunnings – I think we visit the place at least once a week for the past few months… Picked up the laundry door as well as some ceiling paint. We also visited Beacon lighting and went through our list:
8 internal downlights
3 external downlights
8 pendant lights
2x 3 in 1 lights
1x fan light
Budget wise we allocated around $1500 on lighting. In the end we spent around $100 more than that but I think it was ok since we got some good quality lights and took advantage of a stocktake sale at Beacon.
The evening was spent painting the walls and ceilings of the ensuite and bathroom with primer. We are getting closer and closer to finishing these bathrooms off. We still have to put silicone in the corners and on the floor and put the top coat of paint on the walls and ceilings before the plumber comes in on Monday.
