The painters have been plugging away (not that fast mind you - makes me wonder if they were there on Friday at all..), and the doors appear to have had a second coat of stain (which isn't as dark as I had hoped :( ), and all the architraves appear to be finished. On quick inspection the painting seems to be of a good quality which is great.
They still have to finish staining the stairs, and the skirtings need doing (2 coats), and walls all need a second coat.
We finally have a replacement for a window that was smashed by the gyprockers way back in January sometime in one of the bedrooms.
Also, I noted a week or so back someone had written in pencil on the bulkhead in the kitchen that it needed to be raised 120mm - seems as though that has been happening as our very expensive white poly cabinet doors have been removed and are haphazardly leaning against each other propped on the slab. I will be checking very closely for scratches..
The Laundry and Powder Room doors (I am very happy that they have taken all doors off hinges to properly paint them - have heard many stories of doors not painted top and bottom!)
Some of my kitchen cabinet doors & bits and pieces looking slightly less than pristine
My gorgeous poly doors like the leaning tower of Pisa..
The offending bulkhead - not sure what the issue was..
Oh - the A/C ducts have been fitted - looking much neater and closer to finished up on the ceilings now
Must remember to ask our SS about this gap under the door to the garage. Stairs still to be fitted - hope it wont look dodgy when finished..
Rainwater sticker next to toilet - wonder how long that will last after handover ;) ?
Not sure I knew the toilets used tank water - very happy about that!
The bath - sans painter ;)
Bathrooms looking close to finished now - just need final coat of paint, shower screens, mirrors and powerpoints and light switches..
A nice big dent in the roofing over the study - already collecting dirt from the rain pooling in that spot..
Front door stained - and still riddled with pox!
Looking very forward to seeing these spaces CLEAN and finished - two of my favourite rooms in the house so far!
Hello daylight! Pretty sure you aren't supposed to see the outside world through there!
I spoke to our SS on Friday who told me this week will see the painters plugging away (and I assume finish up), the carpenter come back and finish the cladding in a few spots, the Tassie Oak lining on the Outdoor Room ceiling and a load of other small jobs, and he said soon we will see shower screens/wardrobe fit outs etc.
The interior of all wardrobes and the pantry and linen cupboards seem to be painted and finished so that could be happening very soon. I guess everything should be happening really soon seeing as though he told us it would be ready for presentation the first week of April - ha!
So - we are SO close, yet SO far. At this stage I should be excited and anticipating a move in - although I just feel like it will never end and am feeling very overwhelmed by the enormity of trying to organise so many things while keeping up with day to day life all the while not having even a PCI date yet.
This will be week 31 of an apparent 32 week build according to the contract..Hmmm
