I have just made it back from being stranded in regional QLD.  We are thinking of everyone in flood affected areas in QLD and NSW. For help and assistance with rebuilding in your local area head to your local council website and also utilise Master Builders in your state.

Here's a useful link for QLD residents.

GC Renovation - Finished Photos

It's great to show you the finished GC Unit after an intense 5 or 6 weeks prior to Christmas!

I've included some Before photos so you can see the huge changes!

"After" Dining and Kitchen
Walls have been re-painted in Dulux Lexicon Quarter.  A new Artichoke style pendant light fitting, along with black glass panelled table and replica Bellini chairs give the room a totally fresh look and compliment the new kitchen and improved view with the arched doorway and wall removed.

The finishes for the kitchen as pictured include 600 x 600 white floor tiles with a fabulous shimmer, White Mist reconstituted stone for the kitchen bench top and vanity tops, and the kitchen splash tile is "Fango Sand". The Kitchen Laminate is Snowdrift Gloss.

"After" Bathroom and Laundry
 Wall tiles are Son of Olive Lappato with the same White Shimmer floor tiles throughout.  The in-wall cistern toilet was selected to give the bathroom a more streamlined feel.

The existing Dining mirror gets a revamp with a new timber frame painted white to hide dated thin gold frame.
