Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

After 35+ years of marriage, two wonderful sons, living and working in Australia, Sweden, UK and USA we are now 'just the two of us' plus a very spoilt Shitzu.

Following five years at The Sandhurst Club it is time to downsize. Our criteria - build a new home in a development within ten minutes of John's Sandhurst Golf Club, access to Monash and Eastlink Freeways, all new infrastructure and proposed services, recycled water and no Management Company or Body Corporate Fees.

We invite you to view our journey as we build with Carlisle Homes our 'Savannah 28' at 'The Avenue at Casey', a masterplanned community meeting all our criteria.

Mario the Tiler

What a great name for a Tiler.  Mario and his workmate are working hard in this heat. I was taking a photo through the window and Mario offered to show me his tiling - excellent. He expects to finish tomorrow and grout Friday.  I shall drop them off some cold beers in the morning.

Mario said guy measured for showerscreens, mirrors and glass splashback today.
Finally, the downpipes are connected to stormwater.....now it can rain!!
Cabinetmaker replaced kitchen corner cabinet to open opposite direction - allowing handle to fit.

  1. Tiles are looking lovely Debra!!! :)

  2. I've just burst into tears looking at your beautiful tiles. You must be SOOOOO happy with how it's all looking?? Feature tiles just finish the bathrooms off, and it's only going to get better with grout!!

    Is Mario's partner Luigi???

  3. Reinsey you sound like you just let my 6 months of anxiety and worry go for me...thanks for that!

    We think the feature is just enough in the bathroom. The ensuite vanity splashback being detached from the wall tile enabled us to be more bold. I'm glad we did - Emperador Tiles are timeless.

    Not sure if he's Luigi but he was good looking.

  4. Shayne, very happy.
    Just checked out your beautiful kitchen - drawer envy!

  5. Is that Luigi's butt in the bathroom picture???

  6. Luigi, occupational hazard for a tiler - bum up.

  7. Absolutely love your combination of tiles, cabinety and feature tiles! Looks fantastic! :)

  8. Wow Deb great work by the tilers so close to finished now start packing!
