Today I was there all day continuing with the mammoth task of cleaning the place, and had a few visits from trades along the way. Terry, who owns the sealing/silicon business (he does all Metricon's places) popped by to finish off the sealing off the kitchen, after coming on Friday arvo and not being happy with the colours he had (none were a great match for our mosaics). So he bought the correct one and came back today. Lovely guy, very professional, friendly, respectful (and so were the two young guys who came on Friday), and did a great job. Thanks Terry!
A painter also dropped by to do a second coat on the timber step on the hallway and the bottom tread of the stairs. He still needs to come back to put a clear lacquer on and touch up a few spots around the house.
We also had an early morning visitor who managed to access the house, and set the alarm off in the process..
Apparently it was a tradie who had gone to the wrong job - and because we hadn't turned the lock on the laundry from the outside he was able to use his builders key to get in.. uh oh.
Our Construction Manager knew about it so obviously he called him and told him. Gave me a good scare when I arrived alone and heard the alarm telling me it had been going off, and seeing lights on I didn't leave on!!
Moral of the story? Make sure ALL your external locks are turned completely so as to render the builders key useless as soon as you move in :)
Tomorrow will see carpets and blinds and shutters installed - exciting!!
Dining, living, hallway to front door
Look Mum - the step looks great now!
On Sunday we cleared out the garage & I sealed the floor - so happy I did that, especially after all the torrential rain we had today.
Speaking of rain - our tank should be well on the way to full now ;)
