Week 19: Last week for the year

Mon 16 Dec 2013 - Sun 22 Dec 2013

This is the last week for the build for this year. Unfortunately we do not have handover before Christmas as we'd hoped for. Nevertheless the build has been so far has been consistent to what the Site Supervisor had planned.

The progress so far are the electricals and bits and pieces such as sink, tap, etc are all done. What's left to do for next year are the shower screens and flooring. We're going to have Timbernate Brushbox flooring for most of ground floor and Redbook Green Sustainable Carpet for first floor.

Then last but not least the cleaning of the house and PCI. Yes PCI was estimated to be early Feb because SS will be back after the 20 Jan. Not sure if there will be any work between end of this week until end of Jan. Hope so.

For anyone reading this, have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year 2014. Be safe.

Week 18: Painting and more

Mon 9 Dec 2013 - 15 Dec 2013

Monday: This week SS told us is the week for painting. At the same time there are few things for the tiler to finish as well. We'll post some pictures later in the week when we visited the site.

Monday update: dotgif reported to us that and I quote ".. at 10:15am and saw several vehicles there: a van backed onto your future driveway, 2 utes out front and a car. I saw one tradie near the rear-side window of the leisure room performing brush stroke-like movements so can only assume painting has commenced?"
YAY. Painting has commenced just as SS told us. Thanks dotgif..

Wednesday: Today DW visited the site and reported that kitchen caesarstone has been installed. All the vanity sink and caesarstone all done. Tiles around the bathrooms are done, except the grouts. Most of the internal areas including ceilings and walls are all painted. More pictures a bit later.

Thursday: Today I met with WH landscapes to finalise the landscape plan which includes retaining wall, site prep and driveway. Meanwhile electricians were installing the sockets, light battens, cooker exhaust, all my data point etc. tillers grout most of the tiles.
