I am feeling a lot happier with the progress at our place this week and thinking that we might and I stress might just get handover in May. We are supposed to get handover May 1 which I think is very unlikely but I will be quite happy if we can get in for mid May.
The week started well with footings bèing dug for our raised beds and front courtyard wall and the concrete was poured for our garage, front porch and alfresco.
Our normally shy grandson J was very keen to be in all my pics on this day lol.
And as if this wasn’t exciting enough – some of the cabinetry was delivered!
On Thursday they started installing the cabinetry and I have to say I was so excited seeing these all in place. It is really starting to feel like it is coming together now.
Work came to a grinding holt on Friday when there were a few problems with some of the cabinets………………….
In the kitchen the cut out for the induction top was too small. I am hoping that this won’t be a problem and the cut out can just be made bigger but it will depend on how the gas and induction tops look with a smaller space between them. We also noticed that there was no space for a bin recess so this will also need to be sorted out.
The upstairs cabinetry will also need some adjustment as the set of drawers that were made to fit into the space are too big. Hopefully these are easily fixed and work will carry on early next week.
We have been told that Jason windows will be installing the rest of the frames and glass on March 12th and I really can’t wait as we are just a ‘little’ bit concerned with all the internal work going on and having our home completely open. My tiles aren’t looking too hot at the moment with all the sand etc that is being brought inside with the wind and tradies so I do hope they are as hard wearing as I thought!
And last of all the electrician fitted the lights up the stairs.
