As I knew, the brickies had been and tidied up lots of loose ends which is fantastic. The meter box has been moved (which is fab as an electrician friend had questioned where it was previously..), the original hole in the wrong side of the house has been bricked up, the windows have been finished, outside the powder room (where the window was moved over) has been fixed up and we now have front steps and a step from the garage into the house. Must've been a problem with the front steps however as one is missing.
In other news- the front balcony balustrade is done, the wardrobes have been fitted out, the wardrobe doors are on, the linen cupboards and pantry shelves are in (although I added an extra shelf in the pantry and walk in linen which haven't been done (I'm guessing someone didn't check the plans! ).
Kitchen cupboard doors are still on the floor (and have been moved again!) - I've had a look and there are scratches on the bottom so will be mentioning that to our SS.
FINALLY the largest bank of stacking sliding doors has been properly packed underneath, is level and shuts - happy day!
Excuse the light - it is a miserable wet day here today and it was raining at the time.
Front steps minus one? Or maybe they have allowed for fill? Pretty sure there are 3 on the plans
Wonky light ;)
Step in garage - exciting stuff huh?
Walk in pantry shelves - one more to be added
Gyprock STILL to be patched in here - then tilers need to come back. Doors removed under sink for some reason too..
Outside powder room windows - hows that for an exciting photo?
Step into garage - to be finished off I assume :)
Powder room - mirror still to come
Wardrobe doors fitted
Balustrade fitted - on plans its states ' aluminium handrail' - I don't remember choosing a colour for it but I must have!
Linen cupboard #1
Wardrobe doors - master bedroom
'Matrix' panelling fixed - and corrected after our SS saw it and wasn't happy with it (neither was I so I'm glad he agreed!). Looking forward to seeing it painted.
Two out of these three panels have chipped corners..
Looking back into master bedroom
Looking from Master Bed back through house
Ensuite - shower screen to be fitted. Cannot wait to see the house clean - its SO dirty!
Looking out to Master balcony
My walk in :) To be fitted professionally after handover!
Walk in linen cupboard
Ooops - chipped door - walk in linen cupboard
Looking through leisure room to Master Bedroom
Coming down stairs looking into study and entry
Cut out in loungeroom - view will be much nicer post landscaping!
Kitchen and family room
No hole!! Hooray!
Garage side of house
Its a jungle out there
Its a long way up!
So - where to now?
Now the garage door can go on, still waiting for mirrors and shower screens (house can't be deemed habitable until they're fitted I believe?), that laundry issue has to be fixed, kitchen doors need to be sorted, painters need to come back, sparkies need to finish a few things and a few other odds and ends need doing.
House will be cleaned late this coming week apparently and our SS is hoping for PCI late this week too - although my money is on the week after Easter personally.
So close I can taste it.
