My bargain buys for the new house!

Picked  up this gorgeous bedroom set (in queen tho) from Adairs for my baby boy to go his new white QS bed. Was a clearance line so was almost half price.  Is going to look soooo cute.

Bought this doona cover a few weeks ago for our bed. Was on the display of the new bed I have on layby and I thought it looked great , so I hunted it down. Ended up getting it for half price at Spotlight with a sale and a discount voucher!!!!!!!!  And I LOVE it!

Got  this Electrolux ergorapido 2 in 1 last week. Again,  had been looking at it for a while now as I wanted something I could clean up mess without pulling out the big vaccum cleaner. Came on special at Goddfreys (nearly half price) so I grabbed one. Now looking for a good steam mop, for the new porcelain tiles, any recommendations?????

Forgot to mention..............

They have also put the roof on the garage (is a flat metal roof)
They have installed the front doors and internal garage doors ready for lock up!
Electrical and plumbing rough ins have been done and the plaster has been delivered.

Bricking Starts..............

So they started bricking on Tuesday after a short delay, waiting for the brickies to finish up another job, but we have only a  few on deck while the other crew are still finishing up.  So it has been slow progress,  however, yesterday they were probably 3/4 through the bottom level.

This photo taken on wednesday afternoon after 2 days of bricking...Needless to say I was not impressed with the progress!

Please note that we are rendering our brick (never been a fan of the RED brick!!)

Will add more pics when I go there next!

Roof Tiles Finished!

Visited the house today and the roof tiles were complete and they had installed the heating and cooling and the plumbers had been hard at work inside the house running all the plumbing through.
