Are we there yet? Are we there yet?


After checking on the house yesterday and finding the only thing that had been done was the cabinet doors in the kitchen and laundry (that had been sitting on the floor for 6 or so weeks), had been rehung, I was not a happy camper.

The bottoms of the ones in the kitchen (poly) are scratched, which I have informed my SS of weeks ago - so of course I will be noting that at PCI.

We called the construction manager who told us he was having a meeting with our SS today and after that he would confirm presentation.

I was happier to see the carpenters vehicles outside this morning.

This afternoon it was confirmed presentation is set for 2pm Thursday.

I went by at around 3pm and the place was empty but lots had been going on.

The Tassie Oak lining has F I N A L L Y been completed on the Outdoor Room. It looks like our 3 sets of stackers have been lowered closer to the slab as the architraves have been removed and replaced and you can see where the old ones were - a good few cm's higher than they are now. Could explain why the doors needed so much packing under them!
They finished off around the doors finally too and the electricians have been back to install the ceiling fan and lights to the Outdoor Room and lights to the portico.

They still have to rectify the missing shelf to both the pantry and walk in linen but clearly that isn't going to happen before Thursday!

Apparently painters are back tomorrow - they will need to put in a LONG day if they expect to finish by Thursday..

Some pics:

Lights and eyeball motion sensor installed

*cue angels singing* - TADA! FIIINNNNAAAALLLLYYY!

Riveting stuff eh? Nice to see things finished off here..

And up there..

Evidence of moved doors/architraves

Ok thats a ridiculous amount of pics of the Outdoor Room ceiling - I feel after causing us SO much grief it is deserving..

Will report back on Thursday night!


  1. You're on the home stretch now!! Wish I was in your position right now!!!

  2. Woo hoo! It's all happening! Good luck for Thursday!

  3. That outdoor room ceiling is magnificent! Had thought about it for our Liberty but cost ruled it out. Might have to save up and go the timber ceiling after handover!!

  4. Shayne, it's all looking good, I'm sure it will be worth all the stress in the end.

  5. When something looks that good you've just GOT to show and tell. Serious outdoor room ceiling envy right here :)
    Your house really is nothing short of magnificent!!!

  6. Good luck for your PCI. Believe me, the euphoria you feel at the end quickly dilutes the months and months of frustration. *It is worth it*! :)

  7. Good luck tomorrow. The outdoor room ceilings look fantastic!!!!! I have ceiling envy too:)

  8. ooooooooooooooooooohh! Good luck for tomorrow, hopw it all goes well. You are so very close now! YAY
