Holland / dual blinds

Hi everyone,
Well I got 2 quotes & my blinds should be installed in a few weeks! Hoping before Xmas. Both quotes were within budget!
We end up going with a company called blinds kingdom.

We chose holland (roller blinds) for the whole house. We end up picking the colour pumice (matches the carpet) & on 6 windows we got the dual blinds with the back blind being a bronze chocolate colour to match the jasper window frames!

Some pics of what we chose!

Update on fencing: finally found a fencer! They will be going up early jan ;-) can't wait!

Hi everyone,
Been a while since I last posted!
Finally today we got our driveway done. My god it costs alot just for concrete! Now hopefully start landscaping the front within the next few wks!

Fencing has been painful. People not showing up, especially after calling 8 of them! They say they are coming, they just don't seem to want to do a fence on that retaining wall! Arghhhh

In terms of the house only major issues are 3 things: leak into front door! No weather strip on bottom of door & a crack in the right hand corner front pane which the wood has now warped after heavy rains. And 3 leaks in garage!
One plumbing issue!! Water pressure upstairs is very weak! Plumber & PD construction manager coming by on Monday! A few other tiny things but they can wait until 3 month maintenance!

Curtains - hopefully will be happening soon! Getting quotes ATM!!

In terms of the house we are loving it :-) I'm even loving cleaning it! That won't last long lol!
