Bedroom and Hall reno!

So, it has again been a long time between posts… but still plenty going on. I have’t done any reveal of the new floorplan downstairs, it was a pretty major change through just adding a hall way. Our objective was to gain a central hall with access to three bedrooms. It was a maze before as you will see by the before and after floorplan. 

I have a video before on my computer so once I get that I will do a proper comparison. The change is pretty massive!

 We still have a way to go with details and styling, quite empty but we’ll get there. A reminder of the before of our bedroom and the hall – 

Here is some after pics –

And we have now moved downstair so now upstairs is a playroom/spare bedroom – 

Underfloor heating

We have now got to the stage where we have laid the floor heating and leveled the floors. Move in is getting closer.

Let’s just say there was some McGyver moves to get the machinery working to lay the floor. Big shout out to Alban and Bojar from Malas Kakel for helping out, they got the new floor laid in a couple of hours.Such an amazing job!

We have chosen to have hydro-underfloor heating. We laid the new floor using a self leveling cement to get a good finish. We will add one final top coat to get it perfect, then we are ready for floorboard and in some cases polished concrete (YES!).

First a flashback to March 2013. Note the photo looks BETTER than reality, the agent definitely used photoshop when taking these pics for the sales brochure.

Four men and one machine….

One very creative, yet effective fix that made it all happen…
