      Convince your mama to remortgage her house so you can use the cash. The secret is not to tell her what the document says, just tell her it's a business thing and she just needs to sign for you. Head to your Porsche dealer the moment you get the cash. Done.

      easy. she calls it a "gst" hahhahahaha

      One of the things we would like to do is reuse our old kitchen vents and door handles. We should be right with the circular vents, although if anyone knows of any spares we would love to know about them, but what we do need help with is sourcing some cabinet handles as shown in the pic below.
      We need at least four in the kicthen (we only have two), but if we could get more then we might be able to use them elsewhere (laundry, robes etc). So, if you have an old house with handles like this that you are about to rip apart (or know someone who does) then please raid the doors first!



      Once they're cleaned up they should look a treat.
      so is the new kitchen finished? before and after pix??

      Not yet. The kitchen guys are booked in for August-September. Before and after will be a bit tricky. The current kitchen will turn into our dining room and our dining room will become the kitchen.

      Sounds interesting - as an ex-Canberra resident (8 years worth!) and a lover of butterfly roof and anything 50's (I have a house build in 1958 myself...happy to share pix if you're interested) I'd love to see the whole project!

      Found some similar in local bunnies but they have a chamfer or bevel on the edge of about 3mm, not sharp like your oldies and they're shiny silver, can take pics if you need.
      They were about 5 bucks or so.

      Have you still got that cool place in St. Ives Hugo? There are some cool ones around Wahroonga/St.Ives but you have to look hard.

      There's been enough hijacking already Hugo, so feel free to post away. I'd love to see the pics too.

      Ok...well here's a few...the place still needs a little work and there have been some changes since these pictures were taken also.








      this pic is from the real estate when we bought the place - but for some reason I dont have a pic of this angle of the living room with our stuff!












      Master Bedroom now has wallpaper on the back wall above the bed...


      and lastly...just to add a VW element to the post...gardens in this pic have been replaced mostly with lawn

      Found a box of handles thru the bulletin board at Mrs Lima's work. Just waiting to make contact with the seller now.



      In other news, still getting facked around by paperwork and the builder still can't start.

      Haha, better take your stuff to Hugo's joint. It is his place that has the pool.

      Ours is still just a random gathering of thoughts and ideas. Plus a few useless drafties/engineers/certifiers who couldn't meet a deadline if their life depended on it.

      Hugo, your house is amazing, and beautifully fitted out too. Restecp.

      Friends of ours are selling this place at the moment:

      Probably not, as it turns out.

      Seems the handles have already been sold (this morning). We'll see if we can snaffle a few spares from the buyer though.

      Lima, there's a shop in Berrima that has oodles of period stuff...maybe older than you are searching for, but worth dropping in to see

      No luck at Peppergreens I'm afraid.

      Any recommendations from the floor for retro hardware/furniture places in Sydney or Melbourne???

      In other news, we finally signed the contract with our builder and it looks like we might actually start this fking mess.
