I am afraid I haven’t been very good with my blog recently so my apologies. We have had quite a bit going on closer to home and I just haven’t been able to get my act together until now! To be perfectly honest the progress at the block seems depressingly slow at times and we get quite frustrated but I am slightly reassured that this is par for the course with building and most people go through this.
We still don’t have ‘lock up’. Jason Windows delivered the rest of the frames last week and I got very excited …………..
The schedule was showing installation for Monday 9th Feb and I was thrilled to see some of the frames installed on the Friday 6th
BUT, that is as far as we have got! This is the part that causes the frustration as jobs seem to start and stop and you wait for completion.
There has however been some good progress with the tiling and that is keeping me smiling ☺
My better half was very impressed by the screeding and the preparation for the tiling which has made us feel confident it will be a job well done.
This is probably one of the biggest jobs in the house as there is over 600 sqm of tiling and so it is something that has been playing on my mind. I have been quite anxious about my choice in tile and so it was a huge relief today seeing the tiles down over quite a big area. It got the thumbs up from both of us. Hopefully you will agree.
Our tiler and his partner are Korean and seem to be very conscientious and very particular. He has told us that our job will take about 4 weeks by which time I am hoping the windows will be in!
We are now looking at handover at the beginning of May but I am not feeling very confident that the house will be ready then as there is still A LOT to do.
