Waratah Street: Week 1 - This is My Family

New Keys + Super Wallpaper

The week kicked off with Settlement on Monday, picking up the keys and heading straight over to the house. The real estate agent gifted us an Italian cook book and the previous owners had left behind an extra roll of the very special wallpaper featured in the hallway. Any ideas how we can use it?

A 2.5 Hour Move

We booked 2 men and a truck from Little Red Trucks. Our 2 bed + study house fit snugly inside, and was swiftly shifted less than 2km away, all with a smile.

The Pup

He’s been a bit sulky – probably still trying to work out where he is and isn’t allowed to go.

Sleeping in the Dining Room

We kept the bedrooms empty because they were first in line for the sledgehammer. We’ve set up camp in the living/dining room, away from most of the dust and with a generous amount of storage in the makeshift bed head.

That Stove

The state-of-the-art Whirlpool Chancellor and Robinhood 2000 are but a few of the treasures the kitchen holds. I think my favourite part might be the sink-to-shed intercom…

Feet up!

Heating our lounge/bed/dining zone is surprisingly effective. After days of shuffling boxes around, the best spot is right in front of it, on the couch – feet up and bubbles in hand. Now the fun really begins!
