A tour through the freshly painted hut

Welcome to a tour of our little hut. After returning home from a flying visit to Launceston we were pleasantly surprised to find the first coat of paint had been done.

Looking from the kitchen into the living space. Originally we had wanted exposed beams and vj timber lining on the ceiling, but, ahem, due to budgetary restraints we had to settle for plaster. But now it's been painted Rob and I have fallen in love with it. The plasterer has done a fantastic job the ceiling just disappears above you, creating a light filled space. Oh and have we told you we love our bifold door? Sorry to gush, but we're pretty happy with how it's pulling together at this stage.

The opposite view looking towards the kitchen and the hall.

Our entrance- the breezeway, there's a matching set of french doors on the other side too. Don't worry, they haven't forgotten some plaster, these will be clad in the celery top pine vertical boards to match the outside of the hut. With the polished concrete floor, we reckon this room is a winner.

The guest bathroom, a shower with a great view.

The spare bedroom.

Our bathroom.

Our bedroom, overlooking the laundry hut and my flower garden.
Looking back from our end of the hut to the other. The hallway looks dark at this time of day, but once the sun swings around the corner it will come through the three full length windows. A lot of people worry we don't have enough space. We laugh to ourselves, we don't need the home entertainment room, several spare bedrooms, huge bathrooms with spas, the "good" room. This hut is for us to live in, not wasted space that will need cleaning. But it's also for us to feel connected to the nine acres of space we have outside. Once the hut is all finished our next job is to pave the flat area in front of the hut. Slightly ambitious, but we have decided to pave the full 30 x 4m. I think that will be enough space don't you?

Thanks Bree and Steve, sorry I'm probably a bit "new mother gushy" all I seem to talk/blog about is the hut. But hopefully it will all be over very soon!
