The adventure of trying to make a house a home that we built for our family of six plus some craft, home décor, recipes & any family fun we might have.

House Update - whats happened this week?

I really wanted to start this post off by telling you how close we are to moving into our new house but unfortunately nothing has happened this week because we are still waiting for the tiles to arrive from Sydney. I found out late yesterday afternoon the truck had broken down early into its journey so the truck wouldn't arrive until sometime on Thursday. For us and the 15 other customers waiting on the delivery of their tiles it has put us all in an unfortunate position. I'm so glad our tiler isn't coming today, now its anyone's guess to when the tiles will be arriving.
So instead of showing you all the finished wet areas I'll show you what the tiler was able to finish so far.

Kid's bathroom

The corner of the bath  in the kid's bathroom.
Feature tile in the kid's shower.
 So the children are having a white bathroom with a few black features just to give the room a bit of personality. I chose a black mosaic tile called Liquorice Silk from National Tiles to go in the shower and black Caesarstone benchtop with two floating sinks.

Shower in the ensuite.

I've used the wall tile as the skirting instead of using the floor tile.
Our bathroom is also going to have a similar theme but we are going to have more black in the room while the white shares the spotlight. We are having black floor tiles and we are also having black Caesarstone benchtops. Our wall tiles have a weave, I choose these because they add a texture to the wall.

So there you have it its nearly 1 pm and our tiles still haven't arrived. Please start praying for us we need these tiles delivered today.
