Demolition Time

Five months after buying the house, it’s now time to get this knockdown show on the road. How freaking exciting!!!

We were lucky to have found a tenant who only wanted a short term lease. He moved in straight after settlement and moved out last Friday – a week before the demolition contractor starts work.

So, after the school run on Friday afternoon, I made a quick dash to the real estate agent to pick up the keys. With three excited girls in tow, we finally had a good proper walkthrough around the house. I wanted a record of the old house before it makes way for the new dream home. I can’t wait for the transformation to begin. Playing the waiting game has been agonising especially during this last bit of admin.

As I mentioned in this post, we have an abundance of fruit trees in the garden. We took home a basket full of oranges and I made a couple of batches of orange and poppy seed muffins and freshly squeezed orange juice. Yum!!!

Organic oranges - the best!

We also took a stroll around the neighbourhood and met the neighbours as we had to give them notice at least 7 days before demolition starts. We have wonderful and friendly neighbours and we fell in love with our street even more. It really felt like home!!!

    Your bathroom is almost the same as ours – it looks like the same layout and we also have a pink bath, multi-coloured small tiles on the floor and the windows are the same. It will be so nice to have a new bathroom!
