May Rosetta spots the house on­line and flies to NSW to see it.

June Rosetta and John pur­chase the house.

Au­gust The floors are re­placed and some rooms are painted. The fam­ily moves in.


April Rosetta and a friend start draw­ing up the plans for the new kitchen and bath­rooms.

June Rosetta starts buy­ing tap­ware and sinks on­line.

July With help from a friend, the cou­ple rip out the old down­stairs bath­room and widen the door­way. The kitchen is plumbed.

Au­gust The kitchen reno be­gins. The win­dow is boarded up where the tiles will be. Us­ing Rosetta’s plans, the cab­i­net­maker has the cab­i­netry made up and in­stalls them. As the lay­out of the kitchen changes slightly, they have to have more Royal Oak floor­ing laid in the kitchen. Luck­ily they have some left­over from the ini­tial in­stal­la­tion.

Novem­ber The en­suite is ripped out. Wisely, they don’t start this un­til the kitchen and main bath­room down­stairs are func­tional.

De­cem­ber A ce­ment sheet goes over the boarded-up win­dow in the kitchen to cre­ate a smooth sur­face for the tiles. Fi­nally, the bath­rooms are tiled, just in time for Christ­mas.

“The bed­room is a beau­ti­ful, re­lax­ing space” ROSETTA SAN­TUCCI, HOME­OWNER
