Another busy week of renovations, which have left very little time for anything else. Undercoating, painting, carpet removal, plumbing and jack hammering. The house still looks like a job site in parts, but slowly we are reclaiming each room.

The nursery has been puttied and painted and now awaits floor polishing and the finishing enamel paint touches.

The master bedroom is a deeper grey than this photo shows.

Another peek of the wallpaper, found beneath the carpet in the master.

Cohen's bedroom, which we intended to paint the same colour as the nursery, but the colour threw too much lavender. Instead we mixed the paint left from the other two bedrooms to create this soft grey.

Things had been running smoothly, until we pulled up the carpet and discovered the underlay in Cohen's room and the lounge has somehow melted to the floorboards and now requires many hours of scraping to remove.

As I have said, however long you think something will take, double it. 
And then, maybe double it again.

Less than two weeks now until our intended move in day. 
My fingers are still crossed.
