Sealed, shuttered and blinded.

August 7th, we've been in a few days and finally have everything out of the apartment and in the new house, who'd have thought so much could fit into the apartment and spread out all thru the house with more furniture to come yet.

Moving right along, another driveway pic, this time with the sealer applied but still waiting for them to come back and complete the cutting.
Stove, rangehood and other kitchen goodies installed at last.
Finally, the shutters for the master bedroom, interior and exterior view.

The fancy, schmancy, new-fangled stye rollers for the man-cave, the family, meals, rumpus and laundry and the romans in the theatre and remaining bedrooms. Finally all done except for the venetians in the en-suite and bath which are yet to arrive.

Those rollers are quite nifty, just a very slight adjustment of the chain and they go from 50/50 to fully shut or they can be rolled up totally out of the way. Much prefer these to verticals.

Stay tuned for the final items in the saga when the driveway is finally completed and the fences go up - at least the multiple road trips are over with for a while.


  1. Nifty blinds. I've never seen them before. Loving the shutters too (still waiting for ours that were ordered in may).
    You've done an amazing job in such a short time. Looking wonderful :)

  2. Thanks Reinsey, but not a patch on your place, that looks very special.

    The blinds are new on the market and not many places selling them right now but becoming more available - kinda liked them as something different from verticals - so common ;).

    We got the shutters, blinds, romans all from the same place but still waiting for the venetians for the bath and ensuite until the next shipment from China arrives.

    Everybody's shutters are made in China these days we've found, just got lucky to find people who had a great price on those and also get regular shipments so it was a maximum of 6-8 weeks from order to installation.

    Overall, very happy with the price and the product. Lika Blinds - I think the showroom/warehouse is in Coburg but they also have a Docklands showroom one or two days a week.
