On a positive note the electricians did work at the house on Wednesday - Jason drove by and said there were 2 trucks there, 4 guys. They did say they couldn't finish everything - you guessed it - because the carpenter hasn't done his bit.
I said I would post when there was something to report, and as I said the electrical fit off has (mostly) been done, so here are some thrilling pics!
Outside lights looking a bit dwarfed from that angle.
Position of spotlight - right above water tank position. Doesn't look high enough to me but time will tell I suppose. Oh - and the hole the brickies originally left for the meter box way back when the sparkies put our power pole in the wrong place..
More outdoor lights and battens we will change to downlights after handover. And a half painted downpipe.
A sea of battens. Attractive! Note the kitchen cupboard doors have still not been replaced.
Island end powerpoint - exciting stuff!
More battens. Planning on changing them to downlights after handover - to do it through Metricon would've been an extra $4k - it will be more cost effective to do it afterwards. The two in the middle closer together are for pendants to hang over the dining table.
Powerpoints for washer/dryer. Yes - my laundry cupboard doors are now also sitting on the floor!
Prep for stair lights
Downlights in bathroom
Battens, fan and wall lights on Master Balcony
Its official - I do NOT love the stain colour. Really disappointed in it actually. Think I will be having the timber stained to a darker, richer brown after handover. Looks nothing like the sample I was shown at Studio M.
So - where to next? No idea. Nowhere fast if the carpenter doesn't come back soon!
Seems we have come across another build in Sydney in the same boat as us and Sandrine & Craig. They have had PCI pushed back a number of times over the space of a month and had an inspector go through last week who picked up around 60 defects/incomplete items. Scary.
At least they are consistent right? ;)
I saw a listing for a Metricon home for sale in Sydney today on a blog I follow -
Kylie posted this link to the listing -
It is a Laguna, same as ours with a different facade - almost identical to the one on display at Kellyville Ridge. Worth a stickybeak people!
Have a great weekend!
