Renovation - Week 18

Exactly four months to the day from when the renovation began, we finally moved home. I say finally with mixed emotion. On the one hand, it's been a long haul but on the other hand I cannot believe how much has transpired during this time.

It feels so good to sleep in our own bedrooms - for all three nights of it so far. For the foreseeable future children will continue sleep on mattresses on the floor but the important thing is the four walls that will surround us are our walls. 

There is still a lot to do. Sure, all of the big bits are finished but there are a lot of fiddly bits left. And there's the unpacking. And the clean up. And some mistakes by trades that need to be fixed. And. And. And. Needless to say we will not be left without things that require "finishing" for weeks or likely months. Oh and did I mention two little boys are having a birthday party here on Saturday?! We better move quickly.

Basically every room in the house has a corner that looks something like this

To say we are happy to be home and ecstatic with the results of this project do not do it justice. I am IN LOVE with this house. It is beautiful, functional, and will last us all into the future. And because we are now officially home, this is the last post specific to the renovation because there's not much left to say! Can you believe it?!?

Soon enough I'll even post some photos, and maybe even a video tour. Just let us get unpacked first?!
