Week 23

Settlement - Handover

Well the time is almost here now, settlement/handover is scheduled to happen tomorrow! Lots of last minute work at the house, landscaping, fit offs of appliances, touch up painting etc. I am going to be busy the next few days, and I won't have internet, but I will pop back to this blog with some photo's and a wrap up once I am settled. Wish me luck !

Week 20

Just heard from my SS that my PCI is now booked in for Tuesday 15th, almost there now. I will head up to the block later in the week to note down any outstanding issues I have to bring to the meeting with me.

Tiling has been completed finally in the laundry over the weekend, and I beleive that the kitchen cupboards are being installed today.

I will post further updates and photo's after my visit.

Week 19

This week so far has seen my Bolero Flooring laid in all rooms except wet areas (Rustic Coffee), we were very happy with the way it has presented :)

Garage door has also been installed, lots of finishing off work is now happening at the house.

Can't wait to get in there now !

Week 18

Temporary fencing has now been removed from the house. This means we are getting close :)

Not a lot of major surprises this morning, mirror's installed in bathrooms, main bathroom shower screen installed, laundry sink was being connected while I was there as well as the ensuite toilet. 

Much to my delight the flooring had been delivered and was sitting in the theatre room ready to be installed, it looks beautiful! 

Picked quite a few cosmetic fault's today, sent a list off to my BC for the SS to fix, hopefully if he get's on to it now, it will speed up the process later on.

Week 17

Bright and early Thursday morning we headed up to Kilmore, we had to meet a concreter onsite for a quote for backyard pathways up the side of the house. 

We were only there 3 days ago, so we weren't expecting many changes. I couldn't have been more wrong. It was a beehive of activity when we arrived, plumbers, carpenters, electricians everywhere!

Wardrobe inserts all done, pantry, heating and cooling vents in, controls on wall, all the plumbing done, taps, showers, toilets, all the downlights being done, switches, cabling, outdoor power boards!

Didn't notice at first but the outside rendering is now finished also, I am feeling so pleased with the colors that we selected. Now it is coming to fruition, I feel like I can start to relax and actually enjoy the rest of the build.

Early April is looking good for settlement I have been told !

Week 16

I managed to catch the tiler at the house this morning, a stroke of good luck for me :)  I am pretty happy with my tiles thus far, he had done the floors in the laundry, bathroom, main toilet and ensuite, and had begun on the walls in the ensuite. No tiles have been laid as yet in the kitchen, I am eager to see how these will look.

Stone had been placed on kitchen benchtops this morning, but not fixed on as yet. Painting is pretty much finished although some on the cut in work is sloppy so I expect them to be returning prior to handover.

Update: Went back up this morning and found a door open, lots more tiling done now, the photo's I took this morning are hard to see the right color of the tiles.
