You CAN Go Home Again...

We're in, at last! Gorgeous weather on Friday meant we could have a crew there bringing our stuff from the shed over to the house, even though the driveway (STILL!) isn't finished. Some guys wore shoes and schlepped through muck to bring stuff over, while others in socks delivered things to the appropriate rooms. In parallel, the carpet layers were putting carpet into the bedrooms, hallways and my quilting studio. What a performance! By late afternoon all was in, and we were exhausted. No pics yet of the lived-in house because it's all still too disorganized, but here's how it looked before we moved in...first up, the new kitchen: Here's me standing where the new barstools will go, once we find some tall enough. That end of the room will also have our dining table and chairs.
And this is from the kitchen, looking toward the view end of the living room.
Once I can find places to put everything I'll post again...I KNOW you want to see my new quilting studio! Till then, I'll be reading and posting sporadically because Telstra still hasn't managed to get our phone lines/internet in yet...

Oh my! It's so big and I can just picture all the wonderful sock skating you could do in there, ROFL. Absolutely beautiful and so light and airy. And that kitchen is to die for!!!

What a beautiful new space. All of those windows will fill the room with so much light.

Donna said...

It looks beautiful! So open and well lit, I love it.

Wide open spaces. Very nice. I guess it was worth the wait.
Yes, we do want to see pictures of the studio!

Wowzer, Dianne. It's a dream! No SAD in that room, no sir. (I have a den with windows on 3 sides and it's my salvation.) You've been through a lot to get to this place and it will be like childbirth: you'll be so in love with your new house you'll forget all about the labor pains.

Cannot WAIT to see the studio. Cheers, mate!

It looks great Dianne, the floor is very glossy. I have timber floors but I have a satin finish, as I know I could not keep up with the housework to keep it shiny! I found out the other day why my Mum has such beautiful floors - she mops them every 2 days. My sister and I have admitted to much less attention to ours! I see you tagged me in a previous post - sorry but I have been off the air. I'm trying to get back into the swing of blogging.

Well, you said, "Once I can find places to put everything I'll post again."
Have you found places for SOME things so you can post?
