Renovation Update

Well it’s been ages since we last posted, but there’s still been plenty happening!

The bathroom is still at the top of our list for major work, but at this stage we’ve been sticking to the outside of the home.

We’ve put new gardens around the outside of the backyard, and planted plenty of new plants.  It has a bit of a tropical feel, with palm trees, yuccas and other similar plants.

After the new gardens filled with weeds over a few months, we decided that they needed some major work before our engagement party.

To start with I did all of the garden edges using pavers secured in place with concrete.  We then filled the gardens with five cubic metres of bark, which came up really good in my opinion.

To complete the backyard we had a timber fence built around the whole thing, with does well to improve the aesthetics as well as security.  There were a few dramas with the fence builders, but more about that later.

Not much has happened inside, besides painting my office orange!  Otherwise everything is still pretty much standard.  We have big plans for the kitchen, but at this stage that’s a long way off.

I will try to post some pictures and more information about the backyard soon.
