Bits and Bobs

We have been finalising and buying lots of bits and pieces:

  • Variation for the tiles – natural (marble and limestone) cost more to lay than ceramic tiles.
  • Variation for screening on the verandah (a mistake on the engineering report has our deck looking into the neighbours house, so a screen is required).
  • More lights – swivel spotlights for the walk in robe and pantry (Ikea), outdoor spotlights.
  • Shelf for the shower in the bathroom (Metric Tile).
  • Returning the tallboy we ordered for the bathroom – we must have miscalculated as it doesn’t fit!
  • Walk in robe order – a custom designed Elfa solution from Howard’s Storage World.
  • Furnishing bought for Oscar’s Star Wars room – new doonah (to fit the european star wars cover), desk lamp (metalic and star wars-ish) and bedside table (it looks a bit like those walking fighter thingies!) from Ikea.
  • Floor protectors for under the desks (Ikea).
  • Globes – lots of them!
  • Connecting the electricity (this task finally pushed me to tears!).  Are there no electricity companies that know their processes for connecting a new property?
  • Confirmed solar panel installation.

Oscar came to Ikea with me and enjoyed the shopping, but he is a bit over being dragged out shopping and to the house!
