    Thanks! There was a little debate about it, especially the larger one in the main bathroom but in the end I decided to go with them because they were a bit unique.

    Yeah it has been heaps of fun, especially since it needed so much work before. One of the main differences has been with the removal of some of the walls it lets much more light in through the down stairs area of the house (it faces North).

    Down side is it always takes longer and costs more than you think but thats mostly due to getting carried away and adding things in once I started! hehe

    Thanks Pearl! The house is in Sydney, Australia


    Demo works begin, this is outside the downstairs TV room with the slate flooring







    All garden beds removed







    Paving also pulled up with combination of bobcat and jack hammers to get level ground to pour the new concrete.








    Replacing all paving around the house and hard surfaces (obviously including the pool area) which had 3 types of paving/surfaces around it







    Pool to be drained and all border tiles removed for resurfacing. I had to leave some water in the bottom of the pool or they run the risk of "popping" out of the foundations, we found that the pool is secured in sandstone.








    The pool had a crack in it which you can see in the middle of the left hand wall in this photo, it was quite large and leaking a lot of water. The fix resulted in filling it but left a noticeable mark so it was decided it would be best to resurface the pool.








    Assortment of crap, bobcat in back ground along with new roof for secondary parking and my GTR.









    BBQ, shed area and closeline to be knocked down.

    Thanks MTK!






    New carport






    Preparing to lay new paver, you can see the storage shed/second garage in the back ground which is a bit of an eye sore.






    Retention wall








    The newness goes down

















    Pool is resurfaced







    Carport flooring finished
