Yes I like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain

I'm not much into health food - I am into champagne..... I never knew the next line of the song but I think it's an ode to me.
I am starting to picture myself swinging on my hammock (purchased in Mexico about 14 years ago and never hung up) on the deck below and drinking Pina Coladas.

On the house front there still seems so much to do in so little time; at least them was a lot of progress today with the kitchen starting to go in and the laundry almost completed. Builder is still expecting to be completed (practical completion) by 24th December; so we will probably try to move in around 2nd January.
Very happy with the large deck, nothing worse than a small one

Kitchen in progress, looks bigger than I imagined and pretty spacious for an Inner West house

 
The laundry which Trevor and the painter says should not be all yellow (cabinets are white) but I am pretty sure I will get my way. They think just one wall in yellow would be better but I think a feature wall in a laundry is naff.

Downstairs bathroom - with little tiled niche on the far wall

Mosaic wall in the ensuite  Bisazza Oleandro shading blend mix
 
 
The atrium - almost finished - just needs a Rhapis Excelsa (see below) and a solar uplight (if they exist and actually work)

  4. I also love the mosaics! Just came across your blog while researching architects and reno ideas for our place in the Leichhardt area. Hope the 'move in' goes well, I'll be looking forward to the next update. Perhaps we could meet for coffee at a local cafe to compare notes (and no we are not crazies!!) Jenny

  5. Thanks Jenny - move went really well. We still have bits and pieces to do and the builder needs to finish off a few things but has all gone pretty smoothly. Would be happy to catch up for a coffee (well tea, as I don't drink coffee)? Can you email me?? (not sure how that works on a blog - I'm a true novice)

  6. How’s the renovation going? Have you moved in already? Yeah, decks should be spacious for you to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends. I’m sure your hammock will fit perfectly in your deck. I can’t wait to see your updates!

  7. The mosaic wall is pretty cool! I look forward on how your house renovation would turn out. You have interesting concepts here. I like having a deck too! I love spending time outdoors so it’s one of my favorite places to spend my leisure time in. I hope that you would enjoy spending time in yours too!

  8. I totally agree that the mosaic wall looks really cool! Everyone seems to love it. I think that one could use that for bathroom walls too. That would be nice, wouldn’t it? I am also excited about your deck and hammock! I am sure that would be a nice place to relax.
