5 year anniversary!

Today marks the day we became the owners of this old miners cottage - 5 years ago already. We were grateful for the sunny and dry day, because we had much of our belongings outside while an exciting event happened inside!

I don't know if you've noticed the last photos I showed deliberately avoided the floor.. well, I don't have to avoid it anymore. It's beautiful!

The bedroom door is just sitting there for now.. looks a bit weird, but we'll have it back up as soon as we take a bit from the bottom.

Our bedroom again..

The second bedroom, where Ross is staying.

We've noticed most people choose beige or brown carpet, so we hope that we havn't strayed too far from the norm with the grey colour.

We're all completely exhausted from the moving of furniture, heaps of vacuuming and cleaning. It feels so much larger inside now, and clean!

Oh, and in other news, we found ourselves a Ute in need of a new home. It's a 1994 Hilux Grinner!

Hopefully this one will make it up to the farm this next trip! Seriously though, it's a nice car, and I think it'll do just fine. :)

Until next time!


  1. That five years seems like twenty to me. You two sure have done a lot of work in those years. You should be so very proud of yourselves. I am. I love the color grey that you picked for the floors. It looks so warm and inviting. It seems the Old Miners Cottage is just about renovated. Congrats!

  2. The new Ute looks like a nice car. I am glad you found a replacement for the old one. Mom

  3. I had a Grey carpet in NZ - it is surprisingly compatible with most colour schemes - I learned to love it! Looks fabulous - well done the two of you.
