alittlehouseofchaos Lots of planting this long weekend. This will make a beautiful sweet smelling hedge with white blooms in the next couple of years. #2015 #renovations #murraya #orangeblossom #gardening #melbourne #australia 2w

alittlehouseofchaos We are nearly there! Four long days, with a few more boards to go. Then patching to nail holes and two more coats of paint next weekend. #2015 #renovations #thankyouchippie #wattyl #shalegray #white #weatherboards #recycled #repurposed #reuse #timber #1940shome #melbourne #australia 2w

alittlehouseofchaos A little tip I just learnt from chippie. Paint the front of the stumps black, so when you put on the base boards the timber can't be seen. #2015 #renovations #repurpose #reuse #timber #recycle #weatherboards #1940shome #1940s #thankyouchippie 2w

alittlehouseofchaos Repurposed window in, weatherboards off, electrical rewired. Now string lines up to plane and pack out where needed, to ensure the weatherboard's sit flush. Next clean up and insulation bats in. We may even get the wrap on tonight! #2015 #renovations #repurpose #reuse #recycle #weatherboards #1940s #1940shome #melbourne #australia 2w

alittlehouseofchaos I'm painting today. We are replacing one section at a time, the west side currently. New wiring, insulation and weatherboards and fitting any structural issues that could affect a second story being added down the track. #2015 #renovations #wattyl 3w

alittlehouseofchaos Getting really to replace the window to a larger 3 section window. Huge frustration that anyone can pick up and hammer and nail and call themself a carpenter, currently we have a undersided beam above the current window.😕 3w

alittlehouseofchaos I love an old school paint shop. We already have our cans of vivid white paint to go and just needed the colour base. Unlike some big name stores these guys don't charge for the service. Thanks #paintspot #2014 #renovations #dulux #dieskau 8mon

alittlehouseofchaos Two weeks ago we had a ugly red floor, after sanding, three coates of stain with sanding in between and a harder added in the final coat we are done on this floor. #2014 #renovations #temporaryloungeroomtobethekitchen #cabots 8mon

alittlehouseofchaos We spent three very full days reclaiming a full house of hardwood timber flooring from a home that was about to be demolished. We now have enough to do the ground floor extention and a few repairs on our existing flooring. #yay #reclaimed #recycle #2014 #renovations #whatwerewethinking #hardwood 8mon
