We have had a very productive week at our place and work has been progressing along well despite all the rain. The brickies made the most of a few hours of sunshine on Wednesday to finish rendering the courtyard wall and managed to finish the rest of the raised beds and pillars today when the sun came out.
Mean while inside the house has been a hive of activity with carpenters, plumbers, tilers and electricians all working around each other. The tiling is being finished off in a few small areas otherwise that big job is almost complete.
The sparky has been buzzing around installing our LED lighting and some of the covers for gpos. I’m not sure if I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that we had decided to change all the high visibility switches to the Clipsal Saturn from the white clipsal slimline – not cheap but loved the look of them and decided it was worth the extra $.
The rest of the cornices have been installed in the wet areas.
The carpenter has installed nearly all the internal doors apart from the garage one. I am very happy with the feature door from the entrance area into our family/dining area which is the Corinthian RIMM door with Translucent glass.
All our doors are lovely and high and create a real feeling of spaciousness.
The carpenter has also been busy installing the cedar lining on the eaves and alfresco area and this will be extended out to the skillion roof pergola over the pool so it all links in.
The lovely green garden that you can see is next doors.The old wooden fence has just been pulled down and a new colourbond one is about to be installed.
The walk in linen shelving has been completed and I am actually quite excited about having so much space after the small cupboard that I currently have. I did suggest to my better half that I could buy some more linen to fill it up – I got some eye rolling in response!
All the window sills have been completed and really finish off the windows. These are 170mm x 30mm painted MDF with a bullnosed edge. I shudder to think how they managed the highlight windows over the stairs!
With all this activity I am really beginning to think we MIGHT get handover next month 🙂
