I'm so Excited!!

Look what was on my doorstep when I got home this morning....


This sign is about 1 metre x 70cm in size, and is to be displayed out of the front of our house meaning that we are about to start building - woo hoo!!! It's been a long road to this point, and I'm just so excited that things are starting to move towards actually building now. Don't get me wrong, I'm very appreciative to have a roof over my head, and a house to call my own, but here are a few things I am looking forward to with the extension/renovations :

* My kids having their own bedroom each (at the moment they are sharing a tiny room which will eventually be our Walk-in Robe...I kid you not LOL)

* Not having to listen to the possum scratch around in our roof/ceiling as it will be all completely sealed

* Completely pulling up and getting rid of our awful, AWFUL carpets in the living area (and yes, I mean carpets - the previous owners just laid two pieces of different, second-hand carpets down, and the funniest thing being that there are ducted heating vent cut-outs, where there is no vents!, oh and I can't forget the oil and grease stains from where the previous rental tennant had serviced his motorbike inside LOL)

* A dishwasher....need I say more? he he

Ok, I'll leave it at that for now...but there is a LOT of things I'm looking forward to, although I realise we (well, mainly my hubby) will be working very hard to get this happening. Still, I can't wait!

Oh, and a forewarning for anyone who reads this, that I'll be putting up lots of before/after shots as things get underway, especially for my interstate family, and I'm sure I'll be talking renovating/decorating/building talk a lot too :-)

Enjoy your Friday!
