Kitchen, Dining and Family area

We do much of our entertaining in the kitchen, dining and family areas therefore our house entered around these points. This is the largest rooms of the house and also they lead out to the Al Fresco area via two sets of sliding doors on two walls. This opens up the dining and family areas to the garden - or what will be a garden one day!!!!
At Christmas time we expect that we will hopefully be settling in as we have my 95 year old father staying for two weeks, Sue's US relatives visiting, and other family members coming. We may need to pitch tents for the overflow.

Looking towards the back wall is where Sue's kitchen will be installed. Two electric ovens and a gas cook top. A small alcove is where our fridge fits and the opening to the right is the butler's pantry where I prepare and wash up. The dishwasher fits in here with a double sink and all the appliances go - kitchen aid, ice cream maker and whatever else she has........
Now we are on the other side of the room and looking across from the kitchen  to two sets of  sliding doors that open to the Al Fresco or outdoor entertaining area. It is L-shaped but more on that later.
Directly in front is the dining area - I took this pic from the living area where there will be a wood heater and to the right is the family area with TV, book shelves and couches. 
I think we are really going to love using this area with family and friends.


  1. Fascinating watching how quickly things are developing. You really will be moving in very soon. Keep well Diane

    1. Diane - all dependent on weather and the length of time for the fit out and painting. To date, it has come along quickly and now it is at lock up, all the internals are unaffected by inclement condition.


Love to get feedback so no reason to be shy - have your say.
