It seems the carpenters have been back to the house sometime this week, as have the tilers (hooray!).
We now have a beautiful door pull attached to our front door - happy day!
I've read so many blogs where the lock and handle have been installed at weird heights so I am happy to report ours are at a perfect height :)
Glass still to be reglazed to be translucent. Lots of the blue dots around the house have now taken up residence on the floor..LOL
All external doors now have locks on them which is good ;)
On a recent trip to the house I discovered we have a few rogue tomato plants growing around the back (quite close to the house) and today I noticed tomatoes on one of them!
We didn't ever have tomato plants in our yard so they must've sprouted from the leftovers from someone's lunch!
Thriving in between broken roof tiles and building debris
The current view from the kitchen & dining room - a building wasteland!! Complete with leftover wafflepods thrown in for good measure. The block is going to look amazing once the site has been cleaned and leveled off a bit.
I love how neatly the stacker doors stack - there are 3 panels there stacked on the right - nice and neat, perfect for a slightly OCD perfectionist like moi!
A sneaky teaser peek at the kitchen mosaics - D Y I N G to see these grouted and cleaned up!!
Also I could tell from the 'new' pile of concrete waste on the massive pile of rubbish out the front that the tilers had been back -YAY!
And when I investigated I saw they had laid the beds of concrete for the balconies. Nice.

Ensuite tiles are also finished - just need grouting now
In addition to the carpenters fitting the door handles they have also done this:
Not sure what I think about that arrangement. I don't remember knowing this would be the way these two sheets of gyprock would be joined. I remember having a conversation at contract stage about wether or not we wanted a 'line' there (for want of a better way to describe it - at the display home there is a line in the join, which cost extra. I'm pretty sure I was under the impression standard was just for the joins to be filled and sanded like all the other gyprock joins. Oh well, no biggie, just wasn't expecting it!
So aside from those bits and pieces, some bricks have been delivered (also exciting - I suppose bricklayers are imminent!!) that seems to be it for the week.
Looking forward to our weekly SS call this afternoon for an update on what is to come next week.
This weekend its more bed shopping for us - yay.. Can you feel the enthusiasm??
Happy to say I locked in our window coverings, and the ball is rolling on those. Carpets still to be done, and on Tuesday I drove to the flooring place I had lined up to do our bamboo flooring (as we used them previously) and it was closed up with a sign saying they were closed until further notice. NOOO!
So now I have to find a new flooring place to do our floors - add that to the list!
See you all next week - have a great weekend!
