We 👏🏼 have 👏🏼 a 👏🏼 laundry!!! It seems like it's been forever since we decided to convert the old laundry/toilet into a third bedroom (in reality it's been about 15 months in the making). 🚽⏩🛌 We explored a few options for where to move the laundry - bathroom (too small), kitchen (takes up too much storage) before we came up with the idea of putting it on the deck. We love that it's a multipurpose space which will also come in handy when we're entertaining 🍻 Massive thank you to @aspire_kitchens who did an amazing job in the planning and execution of our design. Now we just need to get an aluminium blind installed above it and the deck will be pretty much complete! Bring on beautiful spring days sitting outside, overlooking our new lawn 😌🍃 #laundry #minilaundry #laundryroommakeover #laundrycabinetry #cabinetry #smalllivingspace #renovation #renovationproject #deck #deckdesign #alfresco #alfrescoliving #renovationideas #postwarcottage #renovationrookies #brisbane

🌱NEW LAWN🌱 One man... one wheelbarrow... and a spontaneous decision to dig up the backyard 😂 thank you Cohen for all your hard work, Murphy is so excited to run around on his new lawn! Cohen doesn't trust me to water the lawn so he went and bought a remotely operated watering system so he can water it from his donga in Moranbah 😂 #newlawn #lawnporn #landscaping #renovation #renorookies #newturf #brisbane #backyard #postwarcottage

💫That afternoon glow 💫 We're thinking of investing in a pull-down blind to give some privacy from the street - any other suggestions? In other news we have designed and ordered the laundry cabinetry for the deck, fingers crossed it'll be installed in within the next month 🙌🏼 #deckdesign #deckrenovation #renovation #streetview #brisbane #postwarcottage #dulux #renorookies #blog #renovationblog

Cohen had a lot of fun in Bunnings picking this selection of plants (and not-so-much fun shovelling dirt from the driveway to the planter box) 🌱 can't wait to see them all grown up! #planterbox #nativeaustralianplants #deck #deckdesign #renovation #landscaping #backyard #postwarcottage #renorookies #brisbane #blogger #renovationblog

🙌🏼 CABINETMAKER NEEDED 🙌🏼 For our kitchenette/laundry nook. If anyone has any recommendations for Brisbane-based cabinetmakers, please message me or tag them below! I'm finding it really hard to find someone who doesn't have a three month lead time, or who will respond to my enquiries after they find out it's only a small job 😅 Swipe to see the kind of look we're going for (images from Pinterest) 📷 #brisbanecabinetmaker #renorookies #renovation #brisbanerenovation #renovationblog #postwarcottage #blog #brisbanetradies #laundrynook #deck #deckdesign

📷PROGRESS PIC 📷 Swipe for a reminder of the before situation... Our deck is shaping up and we are LOVING it 😍 just a few more finishing touches to go. We think the balustrade is sooo cute and keeping with our theme of modern farmhouse/cottage (is that a real theme or did I just make that up... 🤷🏼‍♀️). We will be getting busy with decking oil and exterior paint over the next few weekends! #renovation #renovationproject #renorookies #postwarcottage #brisbane #deck #alfresco #deckdesign #modernfarmhouse #blog #blogger #brisbanebuilder #firsthome

✨🗓ONE YEAR🗓✨ Today marks one year since we moved back from Kingaroy, into our new (old) little home in Brisbane. This photo was taken the day we moved in - we were so happy, excited, proud and a little daunted by all the work ahead of us. At the time I thought we would have everything done in a few months... safe to say I was dreaming 😅 but we have made some amazing progress. A new bathroom, an added bedroom, new stumps, a new fence, a fresh coat of paint inside - we're about 50% of the way there! It's been an awesome year with so many lessons learnt. And in some exciting news we have locked in stage 2 of the major renovations - it's looking like the deck will be kicking off at the start of June 🔨 we can't wait to see what the house will look like in another 12 months! #renorookies #renovation #renovationproject #postwarcottage #blog #flashback #oneyear #blogger #firsthome #firsthomebuyers #brisbane

✏️ PROGRESS ✏️ our builder sent through the initial designs for the deck this week! We've made a few alterations including moving the stairs to in front of the sliding doors and widening them to (hopefully) 2m. We are also going for a different balustrade. The little alcove on the right will be a bench and sink, and underneath will be our washing machine and dryer ☺️ currently our laundry is a washing machine in our spare room with hoses connected to an outside tap coming up through a hole in the floor... we will look back at this phase one day and laugh. For now, we cannot wait for the deck to be underway! #renovation #renorookies #brisbanerenovation #postwarcottage #blog #blogger #brisbane #newdeck #outdoorliving #alfresco

Our afternoons lately have been spent sprucing up the backyard and patio. We’ve already fired up the grill a few times and, for the past week, the kids have decided to forgo their screen time to be outside. 😯😯 Is there anything quite like spring??? ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
